A medical journal claims to have found a real-life vampire in Turkey: a 23-year-old man with an addiction to drinking blood.

The man’s name was not revealed by the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, but the study documents how the man’s compulsion progressed from drinking his own blood to stabbing and biting others and even recruiting his father to bring him goodies from the local blood bank.

Doctors diagnosed the man with PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder, brought on by witnessing a variety of violent acts throughout his life.

They also diagnosed him with multiple personalities, but did not say if one of them was Robert Pattinson.
