Sumanto the Cannibal
Prepare to read a gross story about a cannibal...
Sumanto the Cannibal hopes to be forgiven for eating a tasty, yummy 81-year-old woman
AN INDONESIAN cannibal is seeking love, promising his people-eating days are over. Sumanto, currently residing in rural Central Java, was jailed after he dug up an old woman's body for a "cheap and tasty meal".
"She was delicious," he told AFP from his room at a Muslim mental rehabilitation centre in rural Central Java. "I love meat... all types of meat as long as it's cooked. But I don't eat people anymore."
But after a lengthy stint in prison, the former farmer now longs for the taste of love. "What is love? How can I describe it when I've never experienced it, never tasted it?"
Sumanto said his cannibal days are over and that spinach was all he ate nowadays in a bid to be accepted back into normal village life. "I'm sad. People said so many bad things about me. I will strive to get the villagers to open their hearts and accept me again," he said.
But his plea for love doesn’t seem to be working. He was rejected by his village upon his release from prison with a next-door neighbour fearing she could be Sumanto’s next meal. "Sumanto? That corpse-eater. He was a bad-tempered man who often stole our rice and chickens," she said.
She said she would never forget the stench of death and the sight of a bowl of whitish-yellow human flesh drenched in soy sauce.
"There'll be chaos if he ever comes back. I don't want him to kill me and have me for dinner." Despite admitting his love for meat - and spinach - Sumanto said he will now survive on "water, vitamins and minerals" alone if it helped him find love.
"Meat is definitely nicer than vegetables, but if there's no meat I can make do with grass. It's healthy and I could braise or stir-fry it to make it taste good," he said.
06/29/2003 Cannibal Eats Dead Neighbour
Indonesian cannibal, Sumanto, who is 30, has been jailed for five years after he dug up the corpse of his deceased neighbour and ate parts of her body.
When Police arrived they found parts of the woman's body arranged on a dinner plate ready to eat and parts of the corpse buried under his house.
Sumanto told officers that at the time he believed eating the human flesh would give him supernatural powers, but Sumanto was judged to be sane and sentenced.
Sumanto (born Purbalingga, Central Java 3 March 1972) is a cannibal from Indonesia. In early 2003, he stole the dead body of an eighty-one year old woman who had been buried for less than 24 hours before he ate her. He believes that this action will give him supernatural power.
Sumanto's belief is based on local mysticism. Experts believe that Sumanto suffers from mental illness. Sumanto is now placed in a pesantren. His action was seen as "disturbing to the community
