Fugitive 'killed, ate woman'
The Australian ^ | 10/7/04 | unknown

Posted on 10/07/2004 1:54:24 AM PDT by beyond the sea

A BRITISH fugitive held in Spain over the brutal murder of a British woman has claimed in a letter to the Daily Mirror that he killed her, then ate her, the mass circulation newspaper said today.

Writing from his prison cell on the Costa Blanca, Paul Durant, 44, who was arrested in February over the killing of Karen Durrell, 41, confessed to having killed her, then cut her up in the town of Calpe in a fit of cannibalism.

"After I killed her, I cut her body into small parts, eating what part of her I found eatable," he wrote, the newspaper reported.

"I finally disposed of what was left in small rubbish bags around Calpe."

He added: "Before I killed Karen I told her I had come to Spain where I was going to kill and eat pedophiles. My mental stage was breaking down at this stage. I believed God had delivered her to me ..."

Durant, who served two prison terms for armed robberies in the 1980s and 1990s, fled to Spain with a bogus passport after escaping police custody last December following an attempted burglary in London, the Daily Mirror said.

Durrell was travelling through Spain with her boyfriend when they met Durant in a bar.

Police who searched a flat in Calpe found blood-stained knives and a saw with traces of human tissue – but not her body.

Guilty of murdering his girlfriend and the English language.

I read the headline and thought "so what"?

Then I read the rest of the story. Talk about eating the evidence.

LOL!

I have a feeling Drudge changed the title. The original was, "Fugitive killed, ate woman".

Somehow Drudge's was more entertaining and provocative for any connoisseurs out here.

What the heck is going on with cannibalism today? The statistics when the German story broke put me in denial. Well, if there are THOUSANDS out there among us, we should be pretty fearful.

Sort of like Clinton, "I do not believe you will find any evidence that I committed......"

I certainly don't know, I just think it's the expansion of media that brings these sick events to your attention. I'll bet it happened just as often in the bad old days.

****

By the way, what does a cannibal get when he's late for dinner?

The cold shoulder

Be not afraid. Speak softly and carry a large-caliber handgun.

LOL. Nice touch! That's what I meant, a connoisseur of the flesh and the language.
