Throughout history, cannibal attacks have to be one of the worst things that can ever happen to anyone.
At a time, the act itself was unthinkable, but the compilation of records of cannibal attacks has made the act thinkable yet unimaginable.
Many have wondered how a fellow human would be so attractive and sweet to devour for others.
While some attacks are mild, some are known to be extremely gruesome.
Here is a list of the famous cannibal attacks that will change your perspective about everyone you meet.
17 Issei Sagawa
In 1981, Sagawa invited his Paris classmate for a study session.
Unaware of her friendship with a cannibal, she accepted his invite open-heartedly.
Upon getting to his house, Sagawa murdered and cannibalized his friend for two days.
Although he was arrested and imprisoned, he was later released and deported upon the intervention of his home country – Japan.
Despite being a murderer and a threat, he lives as a free man today.
16 Vince Li
While some cannibals attack in secret, few attack without considering their immediate environment.
This was the situation when Vince Li stabbed, beheaded and cannibalized Tim McClean, who was riding on a Greyhound bus, in front of other passengers in 2008.
Some of the eye-witnesses had recounted that Tim minded his own business when Vinci attacked him.
Vinci was charged for high public crime and was remanded to a psychiatric facility. He was later released in 2017.
15 Armin Meiwes
Without being shy about his love for human meat, Armin put up an ad requesting someone willing to be eaten.
While that request seemed to be impossible, a man known as Bernd Brandes accepted the request.
In 2001, the duo met, and Armin killed Brandes in his bathtub.
Armin consumed 44 pounds of Bernd for 10months. He was arrested and sentenced to life in prison. He has since become a vegetarian.
14 Nikolai Dzhumagaliev
Since the total replacement of his teeth after a childhood accident, Nikolai earned the nickname, “Metal Fang.”
The creative cannibal lived up to his nickname when he killed and cannibalized one of the guests during a cocktail party.
13 Rudy Eugene
In 2016, in the middle of a busy highway, a 31-year-old Miami man, Rudy Eugene stripped naked in broad daylight and *viciously attacked a homeless man.
He kept gnawing on the face of the 65-year-old until the Police shot him.
Eye-witnesses recounted that all that was left of the homeless man’s face were his beards.
12 Katherine Knight
In 2000, Katherine Knight became the first woman to be sentenced to life in prison in Australia.
The Police found out that the housewife stabbed her husband, hung, skinned, and dismembered his body.
Then she cooked parts of his body with pumpkin, beets, potato, zucchini, and cabbage.
Afterward, she left his head stewing in a pot of vegetables, then put out two servings of him for his children when they got home.
However, the Police arrived before the kids could consume their father.
Many have said that Katherine is the reason behind the notion many men have about marriage.
