Siberian-Style Cannibals

MOSCOW () -- A Russian has admitted making human ravioli out of a well-known criminal and eating it with two friends in the Siberian town of Kemerovo, Interfax said Wednesday.

The agency quoted local police as saying homeless people rummaging through a garbage dump had discovered a human head and other body parts which were later found to be the remains of Vladimir Laptin, a criminal who had been convicted many times.

The agency said a man later confessed to police that he had killed Laptin and used his flesh to stuff pelmeni -- a Siberian, ravioli-like dumpling.

""The murderer admitted he had cut Laptin's corpse into pieces, thrown the head on a rubbish heap, tossed the bones around the hostel where he lived and made pelmeni out of what was left which he ate with two drinking partners,"" Interfax reported.
