Cannibal Case Closed

MOSCOW -- Four men were convicted of killing an acquaintance, chopping him to pieces, and then trying to sell his flesh as canned meat, a news report said Monday.

Four men in the northwest town of Pskov beat and killed the man after a drinking bout in February, Interfax reported. The men then dismembered the victim, braised and canned his flesh, and asked a female friend to sell it, the report added.

The report did not say how police solved the case, though they eventually found the victim's bones in the attic of the building where he was killed, Interfax said, citing court officials.
