A man in India had an argument with a friend and in the course of the argument he murdered him. To hide the crime, he cut up his friend’s body and flushed it down the toilet piece-by-piece. The only reason he was caught was because the chunks of his corpse clogged the sewer, and police were able to re-construct enough of the corpse to reveal the murderer according to a report:
A man in India accused of murdering his friend, chopping up his body and flushing the parts down the toilet has been arrested, police said Thursday.
The grisly crime was discovered when residents at the Bachraj Paradise Society apartment complex in Mumbai found chunks of flesh blocking their drains.
“While sifting through all the flesh we found two fingers which helped us ascertain these were human parts,” police official Jayant Bajbale told AFP.
After detecting a foul smell, police conducted a search of one of the flats and came across a power tool they believe was used to dismember the corpse.
“We identified the tenant and tricked him into coming to his flat and then arrested him,” Bajbale said.
The 40-year-old accused confessed to killing his friend over a minor altercation.
He told the police that he chopped off the body parts of the victim over two or three days and disposed of them in bags dumped in different locations. (source, source)
