“I’m a cannibal” – Swedish murder suspect

A 28-year-old Swedish man, charged on Thursday with killing his two foster sisters, has claimed that he drank their blood and ate body parts of one of them, the prosecution service said.

“He claims that he drank the blood of both women (and) that he ate parts of one of the women’s chest area,” prosecutor Christer Sammens told AFP.

“This has been corroborated by the coroner, who confirmed that there are bits of the body missing.”

The man, whose name was not disclosed, allegedly ate the body parts raw.

The two women, aged 18 and 32, had been placed as foster children in his parents’ home when they were younger.

He killed the 18-year-old woman in March 2005, stabbing her more than 40 times in her own home. Seven months later he stabbed the 32-year-old woman 60 times, also in her own home.

The motive for the killings was not known.

“He just says he has to murder people and drink their blood,” Sammens said.

The man was charged in a court in Gävle, in central Sweden, with two counts of murder on Thursday. Sammens said he expected the man to be sentenced to psychiatric care.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

The former politician has been charged on suspicion of murdering his colleague in an apartment south of Stockholm, after police found body parts in three different locations in the capital.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

According to the prosecution, the body parts found in plastic bags in central Stockholm came from a man in his 60s murdered in an apartment in Nyköping, south of Stockholm.

The man is said to have been killed by a pistol shot to the head, after which the 60-year-old charged with the murder dismembered the body.

The suspected murderer, who newspaper Expressen reports is a former Sweden Democrat politician, is said to have moved the body parts multiple times, eventually dumping them across the city.

In total, three body parts were found in two different locations – the Karlsberg canal and in the Djurgården park. Not all parts of the body have yet been found.

“We’ve carried out a comprehensive investigation into the victim and the suspect. We can, to some extent, show how and when the suspect moved the body parts,” prosecutor Marina Chirakova told TT.

The victim, who according to Expressen was also a former Sweden Democrat politician, had been friends with the suspected murderer for a number of years. Prosecutors did not comment on the motive behind the murder.

“That will be discussed in the main hearings,” she told TT.

The suspect was taken into custody in November last year after being arrested in Nyköping. He denies the charges, but accepts certain circumstances related to the case.

Upon his arrest, he resigned from his political obligations and his membership was frozen by the Sweden Democrats.

“I don’t want to comment on his stance on the charges or anything he has said,” she further told TT.

The murder is suspected to have taken place between August 30th and September 16th last year.
