What Does Human Flesh Taste Like? 

  • In 2007, psychotic German cannibal Armin Meiwes (seen in the gif above) - who’s serving a life sentence for killing and eating a man - likened human flesh to pork. In his first TV interview, Meiwes stated:

"I sauteed the steak of Bernd, with salt, pepper, garlic and nutmeg. I had it with Princess croquettes, Brussels sprouts and a green pepper sauce," he said. "The flesh tastes like pork, a little bit more bitter, stronger. It tastes quite good."

  • Alferd Packer, famous for killing and devouring five members of his Rocky Mountains prospecting party when provisions ran low, told a reporter in 1883 that breast muscle tissue was “the sweetest meat” he’d ever tasted.
  • Omaima Nelson, who cooked and ate her husband in 1991, echoed Packer’s sentiment, calling the ribs she prepared “so sweet.”
  • Jeffrey Dahmer, The Milwaukee Cannibal, was far more specific and bluntly stated that human flesh tasted like beef.
  • Years later, anthropologist Jeremy MacClancy of Oxford Brookes University interviewed the natives of New Hebrides islands, located in the South Pacific. Interestingly, many of the islanders told him that human meat is “very sweet.” 
  • Issei Sagawa claimed the flesh was just like raw tuna.
  • However the most complete description came about in the 1920’s when journalist William Seabrook traveled to West Africa and recorded in his book, “Jungle Ways,” that human cuts taste like veal:

"It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef. It was very definitely like that, and it was not like any other meat I had ever tasted. It was so nearly like good, fully developed veal that I think no person with a palate of ordinary, normal sensitiveness could distinguish it from veal. It was mild, good meat with no other sharply defined or highly characteristic taste such as for instance, goat, high game, and pork have. The steak was slightly tougher than prime veal, a little stringy, but not too tough or stringy to be agreeably edible. The roast, from which I cut and ate a central slice, was tender, and in color, texture, smell as well as taste, strengthened my certainty that of all the meats we habitually know, veal is the one meat to which this meat is accurately comparable."

Dale Merle Nelson: 

A sexually dysfunctional lumberjack, Dale fought his impotence with violence and liquor. On September 5, 1970, tanked up with booze and hatred, he drove to his wife’s relatives’ house where he killed a woman and her seven-year-old daughter. Feeling a bit hungry, he slit the young girl’s gut and munched on the half-digested food in her entrails. He then went to a neighbor’s house and killed all six inside, sodomizing an eight-year-old girl as she died. Feeling hungry again, he returned to the first house and stole the corpse he previously had for dinner.

NOTE: The photograph above was taken at the instant he was captured by police at this cabin two days later.

Jack the Ripper in the papers.

the evidence that Robert Maudsley was in some ways the inspiration for hannibal lecter is pretty convincing, I had only ever heard about that through your blog. Did you know that Thomas Harris stated that Alfredo Trevino was in fact his inspiration for the character? does this factor into your conclusion to either end?

A question by meeevs

I did in fact know about the connection between Alfredo and Lecter. I have always been a bit baffled by it though. There is not exactly an uncanny resemblance or likeness between the two. 

In fact, Dr Alfredo was not considered harmful while in prison. He helped many people in jail and he became so good that, with time, he was even allowed to go out at nights to see patients.
This is a stark contrast with Robert Maudsley. Although he is now nearly 50 and has not committed a crime for more than 25 years, Maudsley is officially classified as Britain’s most dangerous prisoner, a man said to represent such a high risk to those around him that he has spent the past quarter of a century in virtual isolation. With no prospect of ever being released, he will remain in prison in isolation until he dies. This looks a lot more like Hannibal Lecter.

There is a really compelling quote that Maudsley once said: "It does not matter to them whether I am mad or bad. They do not know the answer and they do not care just so long as I am kept out of sight and out of mind".

In my opinion, he is the true inspiration for Lecter. Of course though, Harris has stated otherwise.
Hope I answered your question well enough!

Gary Heidnik’s cannibalism grew out of his abusive relationship to women and his willingness to break all taboos. Heidnik, Philadelphia’s most dysfunctional citizen, amassed a small fortune playing the stock market while running his own church and gathering a harem of sex slaves whom he fed dog food and kept chained to water pipes in the basement of his home. He would also use shock therapy on the women and would shove screwdrivers into their ears. When two of the slaves died, Gary, the resourceful type, dismembered and cannibalized them. In an inspired twist of cruelty, he also chopped up pieces of their flesh, mixed it with dog food and fed it to his other captives.

The assassination of Inejiro Asanuma by 17 year-old Otoya Yamaguchi, 1960.

While Asanuma spoke from the lectern at Tokyo’s Hibiya Hall, Yamaguchi rushed onstage and ran his wakizashi through Asanuma’s abdomen, killing him. Japanese television company NHK was video recording the debate for later transmission and the tape of Asanuma’s assassination was shown many times to millions of viewers.

Serial Killer Consultant: Ted Bundy.

In October 1983 Ted Bundy, who was sitting on death row, offered to help the task force find the Green River Killer; A serial killer at large at the time. The lead detectives met with Bundy who gave insight into the mind of a serial killer.

Bundy said that the killer likely knew some of his victims. He also said more victims were probably buried in the dumping areas where victims had been found. Bundy also put a lot of significance into the different areas the bodies had been left, suggesting that each cluster or spot was set closer to the killer’s home.

Excerpts from the 1984 interview with Detective Robert Keppel (regarding the Green River Killer):

  • ”..This guy is responsible for twenty or thirty more deaths at least, and there’s a certain aspect of possessiveness in that. I think that’s one way of describing it in rather bland terms, a possessiveness where the corpse could easily be as important as the live victim, in some respects. I mean, its that physical possession and ownership, a taking, if you will, that is just part of the syndrome. I think that sense of power and ownership is one of the reasons why I think in some cases—not all, certainly—is why I think he might be individually intending to return to the scene to either view his victim, or in fact, interact with the body in some way.”
  • "In my opinion, the best chance you have of catching this guy is to get a site with a fresh body and stake it out."
  • ”..Just like anybody else with an obsession, whether it be fishing, bowling or skiing, he has ways he can vicariously satisfy it. Maybe he is going to peep shows and reading detective magazines. I think there’s an excellent chance that one way he gets off is by going to look at what they call the slasher films.”
  • "This guy doesn’t want to be caught. He doesn’t want to play around. He’s not Son of Sam and he’s not even the LA Hillside Strangler. He doesn’t want notoriety. That’s why he’s going to all these length to dispose of these people in the way that he has."

The Chicago Rippers (Ripper Crew Murders):

"Have you ever heard of the ‘Ripper Crew murders’? Robin Gecht, Tommy Kokorolies, Andy Kokorolies, and Eddie Sprietzer made up this horrible group. They killed over 18 women. Robin Gecht was considered ‘the boss’. He was the most evil out of them all. I have recently began corresponding with him. The way they killed these innocent women is unimaginable. They would abduct a female, cut off one of her breast, and would take turns having sex with the open wound. After they would take the severed breast home and each would masturbate into the fresh portion of the breast. Then they would cut the breast into little pieces and then eat it."

The Ripper Crew or Chicago Rippers were a satanic cult and organized crime group composed of Robin Gecht (who once worked for the serial killer John Wayne Gacy) and three associates (Edward Spreitzer with brothers Andrew and Thomas Kokorolies). They were suspected in the disappearances of 18 women in Chicago, Illinois in 1981 and ‘82.

I have finally found a kickass blog about the morbid stuff I'm afraid to say that I'm interested in! A+!!!

A question by altonbrownismygod

You really shouldn’t be afraid to say you’re interested in this kind of stuff.
After all, people will view your interest in all things morbid as odd if you make them feel like it’s odd.

Ah, thank you so much.
Your kind words really brightened my day.
