Cannibal Serial Killers

Cannibal Serial Killers

By Christopher Berry-Dee

Explores the motivations and actions of Hannibal Lecter-type killers who eat their victims


This book examines the most notorious cases of serial killer cannibalism, from Sawney Bean and Albert Fish to Jeffrey Dahmer and Andrei Chikatilo. It also details an array of more peculiar cases: Fritz Haarmann, who drank the blood of his victims before selling their flesh on the black market; Armin Meiwes, who advertised for his victim on the Internet; and Robin Gecht, who led the Chicago Ripper Crew in a spate of murders in which they ritually ate the breasts of their victims.
