It causes horror and disgust in her public opinion France the case of a 30-year-old man, for whom all the evidence shows that he is a cannibal, as he allegedly killed, beheaded and dismembered a 13-year-old boy.
In particular, police were silenced when they entered a villa in Tarascon in the Bouches-du-Rhône district after a man reported that he saw a bag containing amputated human limbs.
According to dailymail, the police located the dismembered body of a 13-year-old boy in a bag in the mansion. Also, according to the French media, the body allegedly belonged to a minor who had disappeared from a care center in Marseille two days earlier.
It immediately sounded the alarm and the authorities launched a manhunt to locate the owner of the villa and most likely perpetrator of the horrific crime, who allegedly had fled.
The 30-year-old who suffers from psychological problems was found a few hours later in downtown Arles. He was known to the authorities for his outbursts of violence in the past. He tried to escape, but was killed by a police officer who chased him. Since there has been no official identification as the child killer, an investigation has been ordered into both the murder of the 13-year-old boy and the shooting of the suspect by the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN).
A French police official said “the decapitated body most likely belonged to the boy”, noting that pieces of flesh were missing from the shoulder, which raises the suspicions of the authorities that this is an act of cannibalism.
