Alleged cannibal found dead in cell

December 12, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A murder suspect dubbed "The Cannibal" was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Mexico City prison cell, two months after police found cooked and seasoned bits of his ex-girlfriend's corpse in his apartment.

Jose Luis Calva, a self-proclaimed poet and dramatist suspected in at least three murders, was found hanging from his belt, the city corrections department said in a statement. He had admitted to killing his ex-girlfriend and cutting up her body after a drug-and-alcohol-fueled fight, but had denied eating her flesh.
