Starving poet?

12 October 2007

BBC News:

Police sent to the home of Jose Luis Calva say they discovered a woman’s torso in a cupboard, leg in the fridge and bones in a cereal carton.

They are also reported to have discovered the draft of an unfinished novel, titled Cannibal Instincts.

Mr Calva is now also being investigated in connection with the disappearances of an ex-girlfriend and a prostitute.

Police were called to Mr Calva’s apartment in central Mexico City on Monday after neighbours reported a bad smell.

There they discovered the remains of his girlfriend, Alejandro Galeano, a 30-year-old pharmacy worker and mother of two. She had been reported missing by her family on Friday.

Police are said to be investigating whether chunks of meat found in a frying pan in the apartment are human.

Calva was injured as he tried to escape and is now in hospital.

He has told police he is an aspiring horror writer and poet.

The British seem to be on a cannibalism kick (maybe they’ve finally learned to cook).  I guess the best that can be said was that Sr. Calva was way, way into his art (or… maybe his art was into him).
