In a shocking story out of Ludhiana, India, a 16-year-old has admitted to cannibalizing a 9-year-old boy who lived nearby.
The teen, after killing the boy, slicing up his body into six pieces, beheading him and feasting on his flesh and blood, admitted that he would have cravings for raw chicken and sometimes his own limbs.
According to The Times of India, the case became clear after police analyzed surveillance video an found footage of killer and the victim together.
The boy told police that around 1.40 pm on Monday, he took Deepu home on the pretext of giving him some kite string. At the time, their parents were at work. The accused first strangled Deepu and then cut him into pieces with a sharp gardening tool inside the bathroom after removing his clothes. Later, he put the body parts in polybags and carried them on his bicycle to dump them. He extracted the boy’s heart and threw it in his school campus. He said he hated his teachers and wanted the school to get a bad name. Police recovered the heart under a water tank.
“This is a case of cannibalism, as the boy craves for human flesh. He told us that he would often want to eat raw chicken. At times, he even craved to eat his own limbs, he said,” Deputy commissioner of police Bhupinder Singh said.
The family of the accused murderer didn’t see any signs of bizarre behavior after the killing.
He is currently being psychologically evaluated.
