WORLD BRIEFING / RUSSIA : 3 men accused of cannibalism

November 15, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police arrested three homeless people suspected of eating a 25-year-old man they had butchered and selling other bits of the corpse to a local kebab house.

Suspicions were raised when human body parts were found near a bus stop on the outskirts of the Russian city of Perm, 720 miles east of Moscow.

The three homeless men, who have criminal records, were arrested on suspicion of setting upon a man with knives and a hammer and then chopping up his corpse, investigators said.

It was not immediately clear from the statement whether any of the remains had been sold to restaurant customers.
