Cannibal killer – He sold his victims in sandwiches

WARNING: Distressing content.

After Joe Metheny was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two women in Baltimore, the 200-kilo killer made some startling revelations. He claimed he’d killed as many as 10 people.

‘Two men I chopped up with an axe under a bridge,’ Joe is reported to have said. ‘I was found not guilty for them ’cause they couldn’t prove I did it.’

But it’s what he’s said to have done with the bodies of two of his victims, Cathy Magaziner, 39, and Kimberly Spicer, 23, that was truly sickening.

‘I cut the meat up and put it in some Tupperware bowls then put it in a freezer,’ Joe claimed.

‘On the weekends I opened up a little open-pit beef stand. I had real roast beef and pork sandwiches. The human body taste was very similar to pork. If you mix it together no-one can tell the difference.’

During the trial Joe proclaimed himself a monster who killed because he enjoyed it.

‘The words “I’m sorry” will never come out, for they would be a lie,’ Joe said.

Joe remained in prison until August 2017, when he was found dead, aged 62.
