CANNIBALISM is one of the crimes that fills people with the most revulsion and disgust, with the mere thought of someone eating another human being causes many people to feel ill.
But some have become infamous due to their notorious killings and the method of which they chose to do so. Here are ten of the most known cases of cannibalism ever.
Austin Harrouff was “making animal noises” when police arrived on the grisly scene and allegedly found him on top of John Stevens, tearing pieces of flesh off with his teeth.
Cops tasered the crazed 19-year-old to no effect and even a police dog could not stop him continuing the attack.
Sadly this attack is not without parallels in the past and here we list 10 of the most depraved cannibal attacks in recent history.
Jeffrey Dahmer “The Milwaukee Cannibal”
Twisted serial killer and rapist Jeffrey Dahmer was jailed for murdering 17 young men in the USA between 1978 and 1991.
America and the world were shocked by his crimes when he was finally arrested in 1991 aged 30 after committing his first murder at just 18-years-old.
He is thought to have lured his victims to his apartment and drugged them before chopping them up and eating them.
Cops discovered partly cooked human flesh at his apartment as well as a human head in the fridge.
“The Milwaukee Cannibal” received 16 life sentences for his crimes, some of which involved necrophilia.
Dahmer was murdered by a fellow inmate in prison.

He then stumbled to a nearby kebab shop in a blood-drenched dressing gown and told the staff he had killed someone because they tried to rape him.
Albert Fish – “The Grey Man”
Depraved Albert Fish, also known as “The Grey Man”, murdered and ate a 10-year-old girl in New York.
Six years later the serial killer sent the girls family a letter graphically describing the murder and telling them how much he enjoyed it.
The letter was traced back to the paedo, who once boasted to have either abused or eaten a child in every US state, and he was arrested and convicted for eight slayings.
Fish was executed by electric chair at Sing Sing jail in New York in 1936.
Matthew Williams was caught eating parts of a 22-year-old woman’s face in a hotel room in 2014.

Bernd Jurgen Brandes responded to an advert the cannibal had put on a website asking for someone willing to be killed and eaten.
He took his victim back to his farmhouse in Rotenburg, Germany where he cut of Brandes penis which they both then tried to eat.
The killer then stabbed him to death and chopped up his body into sections before freezing them.

Luka Magnotta sparked an international manhunt after he butchered his gay lover Lin Jun.
The twisted killer uploaded footage of himself repeatedly stabbing his victim with an ice pick, then dismembering him and performing acts of necrophilia.
Canadian cops saw a more extensive version and said cannibalism had been performed.
Magnotta then sent parts of the body political parties and schools in Canada.
He was eventually arrested in a Berlin Internet cafe while reading stories about himself online.
Magnotta was sentenced to life imprisonment in Canada in 2014.
Rudy Eugene – “The Miami Cannibal”
Rudy Eugene stunned the world when he stripped naked and ate a homeless mans face off in the street in Miami.
