I imagine it's been all around the chess world, but I still want to document it here. Over the last few years (going back to November 2008), I've been documenting chess violence. Today, I read on chess.com a story coming out of Ireland about a murder after a game of chess went awry. The murder was quite gruesome - the murderer tried to eat the victim's heart!
