Details On Cannibal Cases In Russia And Slovakia Emerge

A suspected cannibal, believed to be behind the appearance of dismembered body parts found throughout Moscow, was arrested in Moscow Tuesday after authorities discovered half-eaten human body parts stored in his refrigerator.

As RIA Novosti is reporting, police uncovered a stew made from a human liver at the suspect's apartment in east Moscow. The liver is now believed to be part of the same corpse as various body parts -- including a head, feet, and two arms -- which have been found scattered throughout the city in recent weeks. "Detectives established the identity of the dead body by taking fingerprints," police spokesman Alexei Savelyev is quoted as saying. "After that, police tracked down the suspected offender through a circle of the deceased's friends."

The AFP identifies the suspect as Nikolai Shadrin, who "has been a patient in a psychiatric asylum." Shadrin's victim is named as Ilya Yegorov, a 40-year-old Moscow resident. The two men are said to have been acquaintances, and Shadrin "admitted he had eaten part of [Yegorov's] liver," reports the Guardian.

The Russian case mirrors a similar find in Slovakia, where police said information from a suspected cannibal's computer has led authorities to a grave containing the remains of two women. The 43-year-old suspect, identified by the Slovak Spectator as Matej Curko, had used the Internet to search for a person who wanted to commit suicide and and allow him to eat the body.

“We have identified the grave, in which we have found the relics of two female bodies buried in a shallow grave and covered with a plastic foil,” the president of the Slovak Police Corps, Jaroslav Spisiak, is quoted as saying. Also reportedly found nearby: an improvised altar with a candle, various tools such as clenches, ropes and a mattock.

As the Associated Press is reporting, Curko was critically wounded last week after a gunfight with officers during an undercover police operation to apprehend him. Authorities had been notified by an unnamed Swiss citizen, who is said to have initially agreed to Curko's plan, but later changed his mind.

Pakistani Cannibals Arrested For Digging Up Woman's Corpse And Making It Into Curry

Two Pakistani men have been arrested for allegedly digging up a 24-year-old woman's corpse and eating her flesh in a curry.

As the Guardian is reporting, the brothers, 40-year-old Muhammad Arif and Farman Ali, 37, are said to have cut the legs and feet from the body of Saira Parveen, a cancer victim, and cooked the flesh in a steel pot. Some of the grisly dish had already been eaten when police raided the brothers' home in a remote part of Punjab province.

Family members had visited Parveen's grave on Sunday, one day after her funeral in Darya Khan, to find her body missing.

Senior police officer Malik Abdul Rehman said the brothers had been eating corpses for at least a year, though other reports alleged that they had been eating human flesh for a decade. Having also reportedly eaten dogs, the men are said to have taken up cannibalism as an act of "revenge" after their mother died and their wives left them.

"The two men, who are brothers, confessed to police that they had been pulling out bodies for the past year," Rehman is quoted by the AFP as saying. "We also recovered the body of the girl with a missing leg, which the two men said was eaten by them."

Other reports claimed the pair's sister and aunt had also been arrested.

Man Convicted Of Killing Another Man And Eating Part Of His Lung


A Tennessee man has been convicted of killing a man in a bar and eating his flesh.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that jurors on Tuesday convicted Herbert Mike Merritt of first-degree murder. Merritt shot Anthony Laymond "Tony" Ford six times before stabbing him and carving out a piece of his chest cavity. The 49-year-old Merritt thought he was eating a piece of Ford's heart, but instead ingested a portion of the dead man's lung.

Merritt must serve at least 51 years in prison.

Ancient Brits Ate Their Dead And Crafted Cups From Skulls

LONDON — Ice age Britons drank from human skulls and may even have eaten flesh and bone marrow, but they were far from barbarians.

That's the conclusion of experts studying the oldest known examples of "skull cups," found in a cave in southwest England.

The bowls look almost like works of art, ritual items laced with meaning. Look more closely, however, and it becomes clear they are made from human skulls. Scientists say they are the oldest known carbon-dated skull cups, said by experts to be about 14,700 years old.

British scientists writing in the Public Library of Science journal maintain the cups were fashioned in such a meticulous way that they only credible explanation for their manufacture is that they were used as bowls to hold liquid. If the hunters and gatherers simply wanted to eat the deceased person's brains, there would have been far easier ways to get at them, scientists said.

Experts believe the rare cups – two made from adults skulls, one from a child thought to be about three years-old – were used in some sort of ritual, as was common in many parts of the world.

"It is likely that this was part of some symbolic ritual and not mere necessity," said Sylvia Bello, lead author of the study. She said that the artifacts demonstrate how skilled early humans were at the manipulation of human bodies.

The practice of using human skulls as cups or bowls has been well documented in many cultures, and in some cases skull cups have been elaborately decorated and used to adorn temples and in religious ceremonies. The practice was documented by the Greek historian Herodotus in the fifth century B.C..

But the three skull cups found in an English cave are the only known examples from the British Isles, scientists said.

The three skulls aren't the first historic clues to early man found in Gough's Cave in Somerset. In 1903, the complete skeleton of a man dated to about 10,000 years ago was found at the same site. Explorations of the site, which in human and animal remains, began even earlier.

Although the team found indications that some of the flesh and bone marrow from the skulls was eaten, they concluded that cannibalism was unlikely to have been the main purpose of the modifications.

"It is impossible to say the flesh was consumed," Bello said. "They could have de-fleshed to have a clean skull to work with, but then did they consume part of the brain or the soft tissue? We can't prove it. I don't know if they then consumed the brain, but that wasn't the first purpose."

She did say the bone marrow seems to have been consumed.

The use of skulls as cups or bowls in northern Europe is thought to have been fairly common during that time frame, but it is very rare to find actual examples that can be accurately dated by modern techniques, said Rick Schulting, an archaeology professor at the University of Oxford.

"These finds are important because there are so few finds from this period," he said. "These are fully modern humans like us but we have very little insight into what they thought about themselves and their world. We know they had some burials, we know they cared about their dead. This adds complexity to their world."

He said they were probably used in the ritual consumption of human remains, but said details cannot be known.

"It's not some barbaric bloodthirsty example," said Schulting, who was not involved in the project. "It's always a ritualistic setting where you eat the remains of the dead, but we can't know in this case whether you're eating your own revered ancestors, to keep in contact, or eating the outsider, the enemy, as a way of insulting them and imbibing their power and their spirit."

He said it was not unusual in that time period for people to consume the brain, which is seen as the seat of an individual's identity, but it is not clear because of the lack of evidence whether this was done as an act of respect or contempt.

The distribution of cut marks seen on the skulls indicates that they were scrupulously "cleaned" of any soft tissues, and subsequently modified by the removal of the facial region. The skulls were then meticulously shaped into cups by retouching the broken edges, Bello said.

"All in all it was a very painstaking process given the tools available," she said.

Man swallows cousin's ear lobe during fight



STAMFORD, Conn. — Police in Connecticut say a city man bit off his cousin's ear lobe and swallowed it during a fight over loud music.

Officers in Stamford charged 27-year-old Emilio Mendoza with first-degree assault and other crimes early Monday morning in connection with the attack on his cousin, 29-year-old Ruiz Clemente-Perez.

Clemente-Perez told police that he asked Mendoza to turn down his loud music because he had to work in the morning, but Mendoza started punching him in the head. During the brawl, Mendoza allegedly bit off part of Clemente-Perez's left ear and swallowed it.

Officers say Clemente-Perez was bleeding and missing part of his ear when they arrived. He also suffered a broken nose and fractured eye socket.

Mendoza is detained on $100,000 bail. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

British man Geoffrey Portway admits plot to rape, murder and eat children in a dungeon beneath his US home




A British man has admitted plotting to rape, kill and eat children in a dungeon built into his home in Massachusetts.

Geoffrey Portway faces up to 27 years in a US prison before he’ll be deported back to Britain, a sentence negotiated under the terms of a plea agreement.

The 40-year-old spent months chatting with individuals online about a “mutual interest in abducting, raping, murdering, and eating children”, before going on to discuss specific plans to kidnap and murder a child in an underground, soundproof chamber.

In the web chats, Portway boasted of his intention to lock children in the basement of his Massachusetts home, which was equipped with a steel cage, a child-sized home-made coffin, scalpels, butchering kits, freezers and castration tools.

A spokesman for the US Attorney's Office in the district of Massachusetts said: “This dungeon was described in detail by Portway in recovered chats as a place he intended to use to keep kidnapped children while he sexually abused them and as a place to eventually murder and cannibalise the children.”

In July last year, the FBI searched Portway’s home and discovered the dungeon, which had been described in detail in web chats. It was during those same chats that Portway stated his intention to kidnap, sexually abuse and eventually murder and eat children.

The conversations were also used to exchange child pornography and images of mutilated, injured or deceased children, as well as to solicit the help of Michael Arnett, a man Portway believed may be able to kidnap a child for him.

Police said records of the conversations revealed that the two men discussed real children - by name and photo - who Arnett claimed to know and have access to.

Anyone still believing that Muslims worship the same God as Christians? Maybe this will wake up politically correct Christians, pastors and politicians, that think it’s a good thing to cozy up to a religion that is defined by evil. Caution- Very Graphic Video attached to this article.


Demonic Cannibalism Savage Online Videos Fuel Syria’s Descent Into Madness Muslim Rebels shout allahu akbar Cutting-Out Organs and Eating the Hearts of Assad’s troops

http://countdowntozerotime.org/2013/05/13/demonic-cannibalism-savage-online-videos-fuel-syrias-descent-into-madness-muslim-rebels-shout-allahu-akbar-cutting-out-organs-and-eating-the-hearts-of-assads-troops-warning-graphic/


The video starts out like so many of the dozens coming out of the war in Syria every day, with the camera hovering over the body of a dead Syrian soldier. But the next frame makes it clear why this video, smuggled out of the city of Homs and into Lebanon with a rebel fighter, and obtained by TIME in April, is particularly shocking. In the video a man who is believed to be a rebel commander named Khalid al-Hamad, who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Sakkar, bends over the government soldier, knife in hand. He has sliced through the soldier’s fatigues and is working the knife though the pale skin of the soldier’s torso. He has already cut out the man’s heart. The man then cuts another organ free and stands to face the camera, holding an organ in each hand. “I swear we will eat from your hearts and livers, you dogs of Bashar,” he says, referring to supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Off camera, a small crowd can be heard calling out “Allahu akbar” — God is great. Then the man raises one of the bloodied organs to his lips and starts to tear off a chunk with his teeth.

Two TIME reporters first saw the video in April in the presence of several of Abu Sakkar’s fighters and supporters, including his brother. They all said the video was authentic. We later obtained a copy. Since then TIME has been trying to ensure that the footage is not digitally manipulated in any way — a faked film like this would be powerful propaganda for the regime, which portrays the rebels as terrorists — and, as yet, TIME has not been able to confirm its integrity. Abu Sakkar has not commented on whether the man in the video is indeed him because he is currently fighting on the front lines in Syria, according to fighters under his command. The video became public on May 12 when it was posted online by a proregime group and is indeed now being used as propaganda by regime supporters (and has already been shared 1,115 times on Facebook and has over 46,000 views on YouTube). These 27 seconds of footage provide a glimpse at how brutal the Syrian war has become — and a startling example of how technology appears to be fueling that brutality.

Man plotted to kill and eat children

A Boston-area man, who was planning to kidnap children, lock them in a basement dungeon, rape and eat them, should be imprisoned for at least 27 years, federal authorities said in court documents filed this week.

The man, Geoffrey Portway, 40, pleaded guilty in May to distribution and possession of child pornography and solicitation to commit a crime of violence, according to court documents.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 17.

"Portway has pled guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society," federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing recommendation.

Portway went by the moniker "Fat Longpig" during his online chats, according to court documents.

It was these chats that put Portway on the radar screen of police.

His home in Worcester was searched last year and authorities found tens of thousands of computer images and videos of child pornography, 4,500 exchanges of child pornography between Portway and the people he chatted with online. The images included children being cooked and prepared to be eaten, court documents said.

Authorities also found a locked basement, court documents show, that contained a child-sized coffin, a steel cage, a steel topped table, two freezers, disposable scalpels, butchering kits and castration tools.

Online chats, seized by police, showed Portway call his basement a "dungeon" where he intended to "keep kidnapped children while he sexually abused them and as a place to eventually murder and cannibalize the children."

Two other men who chatted with Portway have already been convicted.

Smartphone app hunts for child predators

One was a puppeteer who, authorities say, plotted with Portway to kidnap children the puppeteer knew from his work at a local Florida church.

"Portway's collection is truly chilling and demonstrates a real risk based upon which the Court should sentence Portway to a substantial term of years in order to protect the public," prosecutors said.

Ireland’s first cannibal murder leaves detectives badly traumatized
Officers distraught after murder suspect eats victim’s organs after chess game fight


The suburban Castleknock, Dublin, home of devout Catholic Tom O’Gorman who was cut up by his murderer, after a game of chess. His killer ate his lungs and heart.

Two Irish police officers have been left traumatized after they discovered the ‘cannibalized’ body of a murder victim in the Dublin suburb of Castleknock.

Newspaper reports on Monday morning say that devout Catholic Tom O’Gorman was cut up by his murderer, who then ate his lungs and heart. O’Gorman was killed after a fight over a chess game.

The two officers sent to the scene of the crime have been traumatized, according to a report in the Irish Sun.

A police source told the paper, “Mr O’Gorman suffered an appalling death before his lung was removed and eaten by his killer.

“There was blood everywhere in the room. This was a brutal act of slaughter and appalling act of evil.

“The young officers who made the discovery are understandably very distressed. When they entered the house it was like walking through the gates of Hell.

“But they remained composed, secured the scene for evidence and arrested a suspect.”

It is believed the victim’s heart was also eaten.

The paper adds that police believe the 39-year-old pro-life campaigner is Ireland’s first ever known victim of cannibalism.

He was killed after a row erupted at his home in West Dublin, over the king being moved in a game of chess.

He suffered multiple knife wounds to his head and body but the report adds that detectives were shocked after discovering one of O’Gorman’s organs had been sliced from his body and eaten by his killer.

He was found lying in a pool of blood in a front sitting room after the alarm was raised in the early hours of Sunday morning.

O’Gorman worked as a journalist for Irish Catholic magazine The Voice and had been living at his family home after his mother, Anne, died 18 months ago. He had recently taken in a lodger.

The victim was also a researcher with Catholic lobby group the Iona Institute.

Iona Institute director David Quinn paid tribute to O’Connor. He said, “On behalf of everyone at The Iona Institute, I would like to express our total shock and deep sorrow at the terrible and untimely death of Tom O’Gorman. Tom was a friend as well as a work colleague to us all.

“Tom had been working as a researcher at the Iona Institute since its launch seven years ago.

“Most of us knew him from before then, in some cases all the way back to his days at UCD. He was a fond and dear friend and we will all miss him.

“We extend our commiserations to his family and above all to his sister and brother, Catherine and Paul. May Tom rest in peace.”

A 34-year-old man from Palermo, Sicily, who has been living in West Dublin for two years was arrested by police investigating the death. Savario Bellante was charged with the murder on Monday morning.
