Basic Information

Armin Meiwes is a German who gained notoriety by killing and eating a willing victim.

He places an advertising at a website called "The Cannibal Cafe" where he announced that he was "looking for a well-built 18 to 30-year-old to be slaughtered and then consumed". Another German named Bernd J├╝rgen Brandes answered positively. They met on March 9, 2001 in the city of Rotenburg an der Fulda, Hesse, and created a videotape of their encounter.

First, Meiwes amputated the penis of Brandes. Originally, Brandes had insisted that Meiwes should bite it off, but this didn't work - though Meiwes did burst both of Brandes' testicles in the process. Finally, Meiwes amputated it with a knife. Brandes apparently tried to eat his penis raw, but found it too "chewy". Meiwes tried to fry it in a pan with salt, pepper, and garlic, but then it was too badly burned, and Meiwes then fed it to his dog. Brandes then proceeded to bleed to death in the bath for three hours, while Meiwes read a Star Trek novel. Finally, Meiwes kissed Brandes and killed him in a specially prepared "Slaughter Room". He hung the body on a meat hook and tore large chunks off it and put them into his freezer. He also tried to ground down the bones to turn them into flour. He consumed up to 20 kg of the meat over the next ten months.
