A man was arrested after slashing his girlfriend’s throat and the cutting her heart and left lung out, putting them in a pan and cooking them on the stove before stabbing himself repeatedly in the throat with a pair of scissors:`
A cannibal has been arrested in Russia after killing a mother-of-two – then cooking and eating her heart, police have revealed.
Alexey Yastrebov, 35, was held in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk accused of stabbing Ekaterina Nikiforova, 27, in the neck and cutting out her Adam’s apple with a kitchen knife.
Then he gouged out her heart and left lung, and cooked them on the stove in his cramped rented flat, according to local law enforcement.
He phoned the owner of the flat Zhanna Avdeeva, 31, and told her: ‘Call the police and ambulance. I’m lying in the blood, next to me is a corpse.’
He confessed to police: ‘I told her I would eat her heart. So I did.’
Before calling Avdeeva, he had tried to kill himself by plunging scissors into his neck, but failed, said police.
He is now under police guard in the intensive care ward of a hospital.
‘This poor woman was lying in the same room,’ said the flat owner.
‘As well as her chest cut open, her neck was slashed. He had cut out her Adam’s apple. I couldn’t look at all this.’
The victim, a single mother, had two daughters aged seven and three.
Evgeny Avdeev, 31, Zhanna’s brother, said the alleged cannibal was his close friend, and he could never imaging he could do something so ‘evil’.
‘My hair is standing on end,’ he said. ‘I think they must have been drinking and some conflict happened.’
Police are also checking if drugs were used. Avdeeva said she would call a priest to ‘cleanse’ the flat after the evil killing.
‘It’s such a shock to me, in my apartment, ‘ she said. ‘It’s like a nightmare.
‘Everyone will know about this, all the neighbours. How will I go on?’
She said: ‘I will invite a priest to say prayers here after the discovery of this corpse.’ (source)
