Well, I don't know about any Egpytian origin, but in the Museum of Man
(the anthro branch of the British Museum) there is a pre-columbian statue,
carved of some volcanic stone and about four feet high, that is of a human
with fangs...

Mebbe some mesoamerican Vampire legends exist? Mebbe you should ask on ;)
