Ireland's Independent offers a story of contemporary cannibalism.
The condensed version is marvelous: "The suspect claimed he killed his victim following a row over a chess move -- and then ate his heart."
The chess aspect is a nice touch.
Now, the extended description offers some ultra-violence:
Mr O'Gorman... was... attacked and stabbed with a kitchen knife a number of times but managed to fight off his assailant.
He was then beaten several times over the head with a dumbbell.
There were a number of stab wounds to the body and blunt-force trauma to the head. The chest cavity had been opened with a knife.
Sources revealed that the post-mortem examination was unable to establish if the victim was dead before his body was mutilated.
A tantalizing bit of evidence, perhaps:
A source said: "The victim's heart was intact but the PM confirms that a lung was removed from the body and has not been located."
These true-life anthropophagy stories keep on appearing.
