In this latest case, three homeless people have been arrested by Russian police under suspicion murdering and then eating a 25-year-old man. It is alleged that the trio first butchered their victim, and after satisfying their own hunger, sold the remaining parts of the corpse to a local kebab house.
Authorities were first alerted when dismembered parts of a human body were found near a bus stop in the outskirts of the Russian city of Perm (1,150 km east of Moscow).
According to the Prosecutor-General's main investigative unit for the Perm region, the three homeless men all had previous criminal records and have been arrested on suspicion of "setting upon a foe with knives and a hammer before chopping up his corpse to eat". This formed a part of the official press release which was published on the official investigators Web site. (NB: I have purposely not created a hyperlink to the official website, as it has malware embedded - and it is written in Russian language nonetheless).
"After carrying out the crime, the corpse was divided up: part was eaten and part was also sold to a kiosk selling kebabs and pies".
I have now officially been put off kebabs for life!!! Eeewwww!!
