(Newser) – Unlike fictional murderous cannibal Hannibal Lector, a Russian killer didn't eat his friend's liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. He preferred potatoes. Police tracked the suspect to his home after discovering an acquaintance's body parts in various areas in Moscow, reports Reuters. "When the police came to arrest the suspect, he was eating a human liver with potatoes," said a police spokesman. Cause of death is still unknown, but the Russian has admitted to the killing.
