Police in Russia has arrested an alleged cannibal couple who made human meat pies and sold them to restaurants.
The wife is believed to have sold human meat to military trainees, including student pilots, attending the academy where she worked.
According to reports, human remains were found in their fridge, freezer and elsewhere in their home at a hostel in a military academy in Krasnodar, southern Russia.
One victim was waitress Elena Vashrushev, 35, who lived near Natalia and her husband.
Neighbours say Natalia, a former nurse, made and sold pies to boost her income.
Natalia at a point applied to work as a chef and offered to supply meat to a cafe in the city in 2010, according to Moskovsky Komsomolets.
The Cafe owner, Vitaly Yakubenko, said, ” She was very active, asked lots of questions but mainly about where we buy our meat and fish and how fresh it is. She made clear she could supply meat.
“I said that we work only with certified suppliers.”
“The police should look now where this woman may have worked as a chef and if she tried to push her products there too.
“For sure these cannibals were looking for places to sell their meat.
“It sounded to me like her main motive when she was looking for a job. Natalia told me she had experience working as a chef.”
