World Gone Bad: Man Kills Love Triangle Rival, Eats Heart with Fork and Knife

The woman at the centre of the love triangle told police that her former lover had visited the house where she was living with her current partner and they had chatted together before he gave her money to buy liquor and she left.

When she returned she found her partner, 62-year-old Mbuyiselo Manona, had been stabbed, Van Wyk said.

Neighbours alerted by the commotion said they had peered through the house windows to see the man cutting out Manona’s heart and eating it.

“The whole situation was crazy. We were shouting at him to stop, but he did not listen,” one neighbour said.

“Even when the police got here… the guys were scared to go in. They had to call for back-up.

“You can’t really blame them — how do you go into a room with someone dripping another person’s blood out of his mouth?”

Western Cape deputy police commissioner Sharon Jephta said the motive for the murder was “definitely a love triangle”.

World Gone Bad: Pakistani Man Arrested for Cannibalism—Again

Police raided the house in a remote village in Punjab province after neighbours complained of a foul smell and found the head of the two-day-old baby inside.

Householder Mohammad Arif admitted eating the child after his brother stole the body from a graveyard in Darya Khan village, around 300 kilometres (180 miles) south of Islamabad, officers said.

Arif and his brother Farman Ali were arrested for eating human corpses in the same village in April 2011 and served two years in prison, in a case that shocked Pakistan.

“Arif has been arrested and he has confessed that his brother brought the dead body of the newborn from the nearby graveyard,” Ameer Abdullah, police chief of Bhakkar district where the village is located, told AFP.

“Arif told police that both of them later cooked the dead body and ate it.”

There is no specific law against cannibalism in Pakistan’s penal code, so as in the 2011 case Arif has been charged with desecrating a dead body and public order offences.

In the earlier case police found the body of a 24-year-old woman who had recently died of cancer at the men’s house — minus a leg, which they had eaten.

A hunt is under way to find Ali, Abdullah said, while Arif will undergo psychiatric tests.

Zafar Iqbal, a police official in Darya Khan police station, where Arif is being held, told AFP that the men’s wives and family members had left them some years ago and both were living in the house in isolation.
