Mexican man arrested in mutilation killing-Graphic
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | Published on: 10/11/07 | By JEREMY SCHWARTZ

Mexico City — On the stove, a frying pan with chunks of flesh. In the refrigerator, a leg and part of an arm, both deboned. The bones were stuffed into a cereal box.

Mexico City police made the grisly discoveries this week as they arrested the man the Mexican press is calling the nation's first cannibalistic serial killer.

Police said Jose Luis Calva Zepeda, 40, was arrested Monday and being held for "probable" homicide after an investigation into the disappearance of his girlfriend. Investigators found the mutilated body of Alejandra Galeana, 30, in Calva's closet and believe Calva killed and mutilated at least two other women since 2004.

Calva was sent to the hospital after his arrest — police say he fell from his apartment balcony while trying to flee when they arrived — and will undergo a battery of psychological testing, police said. Authorities are also testing the limbs and flesh found in Calva's apartment to determine whether they are human.

The apparent murders and cannibalism have sent shock waves through the Mexican capital, a city long accustomed to violent crime, but not to such gruesome dismemberment. Mexico has had cannibalism cases before — the last near Cancun in 2005 — but experts say they have always been isolated.

"I don't know of another case like this in Mexico," said Cutberto Enriquez, curator of an exhibition on serial killers and the death penalty at Mexico City's Police Cultural Center. "This case is exceptional. (Calva's) profile is much more European and American than Mexican."

Horror-story writer The details of the case seem to come straight from a Halloween movie: Calva is a poet and writer of tales of horror. Inside his small apartment, in the heart of Mexico City and just a few blocks from the mariachi musicians at the famed Plaza Garibaldi, police found an unfinished manuscript entitled "Cannibal Instincts," according to local press reports.

Calva sold his poetry at the city's informal markets. He also reportedly is a failed screenwriter who unsuccessfully tried to sell his scripts for horror movies.

Enriquez said it is possible that Calva's frustration with his professional career fueled his rage.

"It would be very interesting to get a copy of his work," he said. "It would probably give a good psychological look at his concepts of good and evil."

Calva is also accused of killing his former girlfriend, Veronica Consuelo Martinez Casarrubias, who was found dismembered in 2004, and a prostitute known only as La Jarocha in April.

Police say his two girlfriends shared similar ages and appearances and both worked in pharmacies.

Neighbors mostly called Calva quiet and reserved, although the manager of a nearby pizza shop told El Universal newspaper, "He gave the impression of being a hypocrite, someone very concerned with being accepted."

Mexico's previous brush with cannibalism was equally as gruesome.

Authorities say Gumaro de Dios Arias gutted and ate another man who refused his sexual advances in 2005 near Cancun. Arias, who cooked his victim's heart on a grill, told interrogators his victim tasted like barbacoa, a slow-roasted Mexican meat dish.

And while Mexico City may not have seen much cannibalism, it has had several other high profile serial killers in recent years.

In 2006, Juana Barraza was accused of being the "little old lady killer" and murdering at least 30 elderly women over nearly a decade. Raul Osiel Marroquin was arrested the same week and accused of killing four gay men.

Wouldn’t it be more economical for the Mexicans to give the guy $2,000 and let him go at the northern border? It’s how they get rid of the other unwashed masses.

You suggesting that Mexicans are more likely than Americans to be cannibalistic serial killers?

So I guess, using your logic, jeffrey dahmer’s atrocities are less serious because he wasn’t Mexican.

First, I doubt the validity of this statement. Very much. Second, our little buddy Cuthberto is simply deflecting attention elsewhere. That's how the game is played these days.

I think that eating people is fine as long as you wait for them to die of natural causes. It’s when you become impatient and jump the gun, like this guy did, that it becomes a problem.

Well using your logic and political rhetoric a wall should have been built around dahmer's suburban Ohio house.

Evil is evil and knows no ehtnic boundries, but you wish to use ethnic stereotyping and this tragedy to push a political agenda, IMO.

Jose Luis Calva Zepeda

I have come to the point when I come across Hispanics in the U.S. almost 100 percent of the time, those that are discovered to be here illegally, almost 100 percent of the time use 3, 4 and even 5 names.

It's one big fraud game. They just keep switching around the names.

Like this guy above, will just use Jose Zepeda Luis Calva or any combination.

But I will try to tell you that are plenty of native born Americans who are just as sick as this guy.

Just look at the sicko who killed 6 people last week in Wisconsin, but this is America and you can use ethnic sterotyping to make your cheap and populist political points.

Well your first reply was that a wall should be built now, thus basically implicating that all Mexicans are cannibals.

It's these kneejerk stereotypes that push hispanics into the bosom of hillary.
