Woman eats friend after meeting for a drink

Cannibalism in Russia.

A woman from Russia’s Siberian region of Irkutsk has been arrested for killing a friend of hers then eating part of the corpse, Interfax news agency reports, quoting local investigators.

The incident occurred on March 5 when the two women were drinking together at the suspect’s home and an argument broke out between them. “Investigators have information to suggest the woman cooked pieces of her murdered friend and ate them,” said an official with the Russian prosecutor’s investigative committee, Vladimir Salovarov.

He added that the perpetrator killed her friend with an axe and that uneaten parts of the victim’s body had been found in a nearby waste bin. The detained woman had confessed her guilt, Salovarov said.

In a separate case, prosecutors in Russia’s Udmurtiya region said last week they were searching for a man suspected of cannibalism after the mutilated body of a woman was found in the town of Izhevsk, according to the prosecutor’s website.
