Tell me if you heard this one before: A South African man cannibal suspect told police he was “tired” of eating human flesh. He said this to officers after “brandishing a woman’s leg at them.”
The man is one of four suspects charged with murder by South African authorities. He also sounds like he needs to go on a serious juice cleanse.
“When he was questioned, he produced part of a human leg and a hand. Further investigation led police to a house in the Rensburgdrift area in Estcourt where police were met with a foul smell, and more human remains were found,” spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele told News24.

Added Mbhele: “It is alleged that the suspects raped, killed and cut up the body of a woman, which they then consumed. The allegations by the suspect are that they would rape and kill the victims before they could cut them into pieces and eat their parts.”
Officers discovered more body parts when the man took police to a nearby house where the suspect had allegedly eaten the flesh.
Two of the suspects are traditional healers. Authorities told BBC this concerned them their actions may be part of a larger syndicate.
