The Bus Beheading and the Windigo

Odd story: it offers the seeds of a perfectly reasonable explanation for the recent bus beheading - that Li had read a story that ran in the paper he delivered about the history of the Windigo in Native folklore, and was somehow "inspired" by it - but instead leans towards a completely unreasonable explanation, that Li had "gone Windigo," possessed by an evil spirit, with the fact that he had been delivering a paper detailing just the behaviour he exhibited being racked up to eerie coincidence. Odd sort of pandering, that - or is it wishful, "I want to believe"-style thinking?
