A man arrested in northern Russia after a decapitated body fell out of the trunk of his car allegedly confessed to cops that he has a penchant for cannibalism.
When Yegor Komarov, 23, crashed his Mitsubishi into a road barrier in Sortavala, the corpse allegedly rolled out of the vehicle.
Komarov and two others fled into the woods, leaving the headless body in the road, much to the shock of onlookers, reported the Daily Mail.
Once the suspects were caught, Komarov revealed he was a cannibal and “likes killing people,” according to Russian authorities.
Komarov also confessed to fatally stabbing a 38-year-old man in a St. Petersburg park because he wanted to taste human flesh, reported Russian media, according to the Mail.
“When he died, I gutted his neck and tasted the blood and meat,” he reportedly said. “But the meat was difficult to cut, as the knife was blunt, and I did not like the taste of his veins.”
Komarov detailed how before getting rid of the body, he sliced off the tongue so he could taste it, allegedly cooking it in butter.
He did not fancy that, either, adding, “I probably would have liked another part of the body.”
The man also warned investigators to tighten his handcuffs so he did not “bite them.”
According to local media, Komarov was born in St. Petersburg and lived with his parents and grandmother in a communal apartment.
His social media profile on the Russian site VKontakte says he is interested in “anarcho-primitivism,” psychedelic music, and “elixirs of immortality.”
Investigators believe the headless victim found in the car was a 50-year-old businessman from St. Petersburg who was killed after getting into an argument with the suspects.
They reportedly intended to bury the body in the woods.
Police found spades, rope, and sacks in Komarov’s trunk.
