A suspected cannibal is to be given a lie detector test this week in a bid to resolve the mysterious case of the fisherman ‘eaten by his friends’.
Alexander Abdullaev, 37, will be quizzed on whether he and Alexei Gorulenko, 35, murdered Andrei Kurochkin, 44, on a trip to a remote area of eastern Siberia. He has previously denied murder, claiming that he died of the cold after they got lost in the taiga.
‘He died from the cold after getting a leg injury. He was frostbitten and froze to death. Only after that did we start eating him, to survive,’ Abdullaev was quoted telling investigators earlier.
It was nice of them to wait.
I’ve bookmarked The Siberian Times because, c’mon, where else are you going to find stories like this?
