Yesterday evening the Slovak police were involved in a curious case in which a police officer and the perpetrator were shot. The case was unusual as it involved a Slovak man who had agreed with a Swiss ‘client’ to kill, quarter and then eat him.
The incident took place in the village of Kysak in the Kosice Region as part of a planned police operation. Following e-mail agreement, the Swiss man started to worry after realising that the Slovak man was serious about carrying the cannibalistic actions out, and so he contacted Swiss police.
The Swiss authorities then used Interpol to contact the Slovak police, who sent an agent in place of the Swiss man to meet the cannibalistic Slovak at the agreed meeting point. The Slovak man had agreed to kill, cut up and progressively eat the Swiss man, and the arrangement was voluntary with no money to change hands.
As soon as police were sure that the Slovak man had all the necessary tools to commit the crime, they started to move in. Realising this, the would-be cannibal pulled out a gun, forcing police marksmen to open fire. The man was hit five times, but still managed to shoot at the impersonating agent, who was unlucky to be hit through the shoulder, which was not protected by his bulletproof vest.
Interior minister Daniel Lipsic and police commissioner Jaroslav Spisiak made their way to the crime scene to inform of the details of the case. Spisiak explained that the Swiss man had agreed to be doped, stabbed through the heart, then cut up and stored in the ground before being gradually eaten by the flesh-hungry 43-yr old Slovak from nearby village of Sokol.
The Slovak man had 4 legal firearms and everything in his possession needed to carry out the perverse crime, such as knives, saws, body bags, and even peppers to throw off the scent of dogs and other animals once the man’s body was to be stored in the ground awaiting consumption.
The voluntary cannibal is now in hospital with serious injuries, while the police agent’s condition has been stabilised, even though the bullet went through his shoulder into his chest cavity.
