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.
I have nothing to say.
Sometimes headlines are just too easy.
Mastacater? I hardly even know her!
"After I killed her, I cut her body into small parts, eating what part of her I found EATABLE," he wrote, the newspaper reported.
Guilty of murdering his girlfriend and the English language.
Some People Just Need Killing. Kill him.
I read the headline and thought "so what"?
Then I read the rest of the story. Talk about eating the evidence.
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.
Sort of like Clinton, "I do not believe you will find any evidence that I committed......"
Yes, I did have sexually relations with Ms. Lewinski, but for Chrissakes I didnt eat her!!!
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
I'm NO connoisseur....
just a cunning linguist.
John Edwards is no masterdebater, thats for sure.
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.
He doesn't like Chitlen's or Liver.
Do I really live in George Romero film?
