A man who proudly proclaims himself to be a cannibal was apprehended by police when a headless body was found at the scene of a car accident.
The incident took place near St. Petersburg, Russia.
Three people were arrested. Of those, two allegedly murdered a man in St. Petersburg and set the scene of the crime — a garage — on fire, according to Tass.
One of the suspects admitted to engaging in cannibalism.
Yegor Komarov, 23, appeared in a court hearing and made multiple provocative statements, according to Heavy.com.
After a corpse fell out of car’s trunk following a crash, the police arrested three suspects. On Monday one of them, 23-year-old Yegor Komarov, stood before the court in the Leningrad region—and admitted that he was a man-eater. https://t.co/kOd1fuepLO

“I killed that one in Sosnovka in vain,” he reportedly told authorities. “It turned out he was not tasty.”
He claimed he killed a 38-year-old man in St. Petersburg to eat some of him.
“But the meat was difficult to cut, as the knife was blunt, and I did not like the taste of his veins,” he said, according to the Washington Examiner.
After saying he tried to eat the man’s tongue but did not like it, he said, “But I probably would have liked another part of the body.”
In a video of Komarov cited by The Daily Beast, he said of one victim, “I nibbled to just take a taste.”
“Are you ready to eat a human again?” he was asked.
“Do you have some?” he replied.
Russian media reported that the crash took place when Komarov and those with him were taking the body of the man murdered in the garage out to a forest to dispose of it.
One Russian media report claimed that when police removed Komarov’s handcuffs, he called out, “What are you doing, I can bite you to death!”
“Police thanked Komarov for his confession, twisted his arms behind this time and put the handcuffs back on,” the Russian report said.
