Gang killed five people for their body fat
Daily Record ^ | November 21, 2009 | Donna Watson

A GANG of killers who murdered to steal their victims' body fat have been arrested in Peru.

Police said the three people held in the jungle province of Huanuco confessed to five killings and said they could sell one litre of fat for £10,000 to the cosmetic industry.

The men said the fat was sold to intermediaries in Lima, who police suspect sold it to companies in Europe.

Police have found the head of one victim and several bottles of fat, which they displayed at a news conference.

Suspect Elmer Segundo Castillejos, 29, led police to the head last month, police said.

He also gave gruesome details of how they cut off their victims' heads, arms and legs and removed organs.

They then suspended the torsos from hooks and warmed the flesh, so the fat dripped into jars below.

It is believed six members of the gang are still at large, including leader Hilario Cudena, 56, who Castillejos said had been killing people to extract human fat for more than 30 years.

Medical authorities said last night human fat is used in anti-wrinkle treatments - but is always extracted from the patient, usually from the stomach or buttocks.

There would be a risk of reaction that could lead to lifethreatening consequences if fat from someone else were used, said dermatology professor Dr Neil Sadick.

It's a good thing that the Peruvian police caught him right away.

LONG ARTICLE:

Officials did not disclose what possible use laboratories could have for the human fat, but fat can be a component of cosmetics and is used in reconstructive or cosmetic surgery. [6] Human fat used in anti-wrinkle treatments is always extracted from the patient being treated, usually from the stomach or buttocks.[3] The story became widely accepted. Last year a surgeon in California was accused of using human fat to fuel his car. Dr Craig Alan Bittner extracted triglycerides from fat he acquired in liposuction operations and converted it to diesel.[1]

They’re making a nice fat profit! But I’m weighting for some heavyweight to weigh in on the economic issues. I hear there’s going to be a meating in Peru about how to cut the fat out of this operation, and how to beef up sales.

We could take up a collection. I'll bet we could raise enough for a great Peruvian vacation for Michael in no time.

“Hey, lets kill people for their fat”.

“Um, how about we start a liposuction clinic, and people will PAY us to give us their fat?”

Thinking...

“Nah, get your gun.”
