Give a man a fish, you'll feed him for a day. Give a man a corpse, you can feed him and put some cash in his pocket.
I joke, but the following story is gruesome and unnerving. Yetch brought it to my attention this weekend, and I've been haunted by it ever since.
In the city of Perm outside of Moscow, three homeless men were arrested after dismembered parts of a 25-year-old man were found near a bus stop.
The men - all with criminal records - attacked the young man with a hammer and knives. How does this story get worse? Here's the statement from the prosecutor's main investigative unit for the Perm region:
After carrying out the crime, the corpse was divided up: part was eaten and part was also sold to a kiosk selling kebabs and pies.
No one can confirm if the human flesh was actually served to customers.
Question: what kind of food establishment buys mystery meat from homeless men? In all the sources I've found about this story, not one mentions whether or not the kebab shop has been shut down or even fined.
