A police officer from Dresden, Germany has been arrested for the murder and cannibalization of a 59-year-old man from Hannover.
Officer “Detlev G.,” was arrested after police found his email and chat logs which documented the crimes of the killer cop.
Officer Detlev, 55, apparently had an agreement to meet, kill and eat his victim. The two of them met on an online “cannibalism” forum.
Officer Detlev was employed by the Saxony State Office of Criminal Investigation.
After having worked closely many times with the officer, the state prosecutor described the Detlev’s “bizarre treatment of the corpse.”
Apparently the officer and his victim met on November 4th. Shortly after they met up, Detlev killed and cut up his victim’s body. It was four or five hours, according to the state prosecutor, before the victim was consumed by the cannibal cop.
Officer Detlev, however, did not have the appetite for the whole corpse of his victim. Many parts of the man were buried outside in Detlev’s garden according to the local newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung.
After the infamous Rotenburg cannibal met his victims over a decade ago in 2001 on the same forum, German media and law enforcement have been trying to downplaying this as “uncertain”.
“They did not know each other personally until then,” Maik Mainda, the Dresden head of criminal investigations, said at press conference.
“The agreement was that the killing should take place immediately,” Mainda continued.
Detlev “then used a knife to cause a life-threatening wound on the throat of the victim, which led to his death,” Mainda explained, not making a very good case for this not being about cannibalism.
“The suspect has told us that he then cut the victim into separate pieces, including many very small pieces, and that he also cut through bones. The suspect then buried the body parts on the sloping lawn of his property.”
All in all, this sounds a whole like like another case of a cannibal cop, regardless of the German media downplaying this obvious motive.
