A ‘CANNIBAL killer’ found with his victim’s liver in his trouser pocket has been dubbed the Thai Hannibal Lecter after revealing he was planning to eat it in a spicy salad.

Accused murderer Paere Jongthong confessed to police he had killed his elderly neighbour and that he was going to eat his liver to extend his own life, according to reports.

But the 24-year-old said he only killed Tan Loon-ubon, 79, after the old man claimed to have killed his father.

The murder happened at the home of Mr Loon-ubon in the village of Dong Suang in north-eastern Thailand’s Bueng Karn Province.

Jongthong told police he was visiting his neighbour as he often did, though on this occasion he had taken a tablet of methamphetamine and smoked some cannabis.

He says that their conversation took an odd twist when the elderly man suddenly said he had murdered his father.

Jongthong said: “He told me he killed my dad. I said that couldn’t be true, but he wouldn’t stop talking about it. I didn’t know what to do.

“I stabbed him, and he cried and apologised. I was so angry. I asked him four times if he was telling the truth.”

Police say that the elderly victim was found with his abdomen cut wide open as well as having suffered an injury to the neck.

A long kitchen knife found nearby is thought to have been the murder weapon and cops say the victim’s liver was found in Jongthong’s trousers.

Asked whether he had intended to eat it, Jongthong reportedly said: “Yes, that’s right.”

Thai media report that he even had a recipe planned for the liver – a spicy salad.

 The suspect admitted he had taken drugs before the brutal attack

He was reported to have said that he thought his health would be improved and his life lengthened if he ate a person’s liver.

Police arrested him and charged him with murder.

The case evokes Thomas Harris’s novel The Silence Of The Lambs, in which caged serial killer Lecter tells FBI investigator Clarice Starling: “A census taker tried to quantify me once. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone.”

In the 1991 film of the book the line spoken by Anthony Hopkins as Lecter to Jodie Foster as Starling was changed to: “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”
