"We have more than 50 ... simultaneous investigations going on, and we have an unprecedented number of FOIA requests," Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "I have had to cannibalize bureaus to get people to go spend their time on these requests." "I'm concerned about it because this is tying up international diplomats," he said.

Christopher Scarver — who fatally beat the serial killer and another inmate in 1994 — said he grew to despise Dahmer because he would fashion severed limbs out of prison food to taunt the other inmates.

    In a stunning reversal, infamous Cannibal Cop Gilberto Valle will likely have his conviction for a bizarre kidnapping conspiracy scheme overturned on Tuesday after a judge decided to revoke the guilty verdict in the flesh-eating fetish plot, a source said. The disgraced NYPD veteran, who was convicted of hatching a “heinous” plan to cook, kill, and eat several women — including his own wife — was facing life in prison for the crime. But Valle will likely have the major charge of conspiracy overturned and the sentence vacated with only a misdemeanor charge of using police computers to track down...

    (Baby It's Cold Outside playing) GLENN: See, maybe this is just the -- maybe this is just the negative side of me, but... I think this -- you know, stop this song for a second. Maybe it's just me but this seems like, oh, this is kind of cute. But then I heard this done by Dean Martin and Dean Martin you know you couldn't trust. I mean, he was a friend of Sinatra.

    OTTAWA (AFP) — A Chinese immigrant who stabbed, gutted and beheaded a fellow passenger on a bus traveling across Canada last week also cannibalized the victim and pocketed his nose, lips and ear, a court heard Tuesday.

The victim has been identified by friends as Tim McLean, a young man of 22 years who was returning home to Winnipeg from a job as a carnival worker in Edmonton in Western Canada. In his second court appearance, Li was overheard saying "please kill me," his interim...

    A seven-year-old boy was kept chained in a closet as relatives hacked off pieces of his flesh to eat, a court has heard. In a case with echoes of the Fritzl family horror in Austria, Ondrej Mauerova was partially skinned in the closet in a cellar at his home in Kurim near Brno, in the Czech Republic, according to reports. The abuse – involving members of a religious cult – was uncovered by chance last May when a neighbour's television baby monitor picked up graphic pictures of what was happening next door. Ondrej and his nine-year-old brother Jakub were locked...

    TOKYO (AFP) — Japan on Tuesday executed three people including notorious serial killer Tsutomu Miyazaki, a fetishist convicted of murdering four little girls and eating some of their bodies, officials said. Miyazaki, 45, was nicknamed the "killer nerd" for his obsession with sexual cartoons and pornography. But defence lawyers contended he was mentally ill and could not be held fully responsible for his actions. Japan is the only major industrialised nation other than the United States to apply the death penalty and has been stepping up the pace of executions, which enjoy wide public support. "We are carrying out executions...

    A British man who claimed to have chopped up and eaten his girlfriend is facing 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to her manslaughter. Paul Durant, 47, was arrested in February 2004 on suspicion of murdering Karen Durrell, 41, a divorced mother of two from Ilford, Essex. She disappeared shortly after meeting Durant just days after she moved to the Costa Blanca on Spain's southeastern coast in January 2004. Police searched her flat in the resort of Calpe, 15 miles east of Benidorm, and found her blood in the bath, bloodstained knives and a saw with traces of flesh...
