I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

3 Accused of Making Flesh Empanadas

3 Brazilians Arrested For Murder, Cannibalism
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/1 ... d%3D152165

SAO PAULO -- Police have arrested three people for allegedly killing at least two women, eating parts of their bodies and using their flesh to make stuffed pastries known as empanadas that they sold to neighbors in their northeastern Brazil city.

The three suspects – a man, his wife and his mistress – belonged to a sect that preached "the purification of the world and the reduction of its population," police inspector Wesley Fernandes in the city of Garanhuns told the Globo TV network Friday.

The newspaper Estado de S.Paulo said the man, Jorge Beltrao Negromonte, wrote a 50-page book titled "Revelations of a Schizophrenic" in which he says he hears voices and is obsessed with the killing of women.

Fernandes said the three were arrested Wednesday and had confessed to the crimes.

The three allegedly lured women to their house by promising them a job as a nanny. They were tracked down after one of the arrested women used a credit card belonging to a victim who disappeared last month.

Police found the remains of the two women in the backyard of the suspects' house, which enraged neighbors burned to the ground Thursday.

Fernandes identified the three as Negromonte; his wife, Isabel Cristina Pires; and his mistress, Bruna Oliveira da Silva.

The three allegedly had plans for killing another woman living in the nearby city of Lagoa do Ouro, Fernandes said.

and they only killed two women? I'd call that a serious lack of commitment.

Come on, you're cooky belief system vows to reduce the world's population and your answer is to only kill 2 people? Thats like making a New Year's resolution to loose weight, and when someone comes to ask you about it you're like, "well, I cut my hair.". Their grand high vizier or whatever is going to be very disappointed in them. :snooty:

For shame......

Yeah, I know what you mean. But humour aside, this is really sick.

Oh, I do enjoy the black humour, and I am a major misanthrope, but seriously, this is what is known in the industry as FUBAR. :|
