Cannibal Social Network
(Dresden, Germany) Presumably, all rational adults will find this report disturbing.
On Nov. 4, German businessman Wojciech Stempniewicz left his native Hanover by train and made the 360-kilometer journey to Dresden. The 59-year old managed a successful trucking firm and was engaged to be married. On arrival in Dresden he met with a police worker Detlev Guenzel, who stabbed him in the neck and chopped his body into small pieces.With 'thousands' of cannibals around the world, one might logically expect more news reports about them.
But this was not a straightforward murder. Police quickly announced their suspicions that part of the body had been eaten and that Stempniewicz had been a willing victim.
“The missing man had fantasized since his youth about being killed and eaten by another person,” reported Dresden police chief Dieter Kroll.
Neither was this an isolated incident. British man Geoffrey Portway was arrested in September for a plot to kill and eat a child, complete with gruesome accessories. A New York police officer is standing trial for attempting to eat his wife. German authorities estimate they have thousands of cannibals within their borders alone.
In every case, investigators discovered the cannibals had plotted their actions online, through dedicated communities with thousands of members, reaching around the world.
