Cannibal now wants love on the menu
AN INDONESIAN cannibal is seeking love, promising his people-eating days are over.
Sumanto, currently residing in rural Central Java, was jailed after he dug up an old woman’s body for a “cheap and tasty meal”.
“She was delicious,” he told AFP from his room at a Muslim mental rehabilitation centre in rural Central Java.
“I love meat… all types of meat as long as it’s cooked. But I don’t eat people anymore.”
But after a lengthy stint in prison, the former farmer now longs for the taste of love.
“What is love? How can I describe it when I’ve never experienced it, never tasted it?”
Sumanto said his cannibal days are over and that spinach was all he ate nowadays in a bid to be accepted back into normal village life.
“I’m sad. People said so many bad things about me. I will strive to get the villagers to open their hearts and accept me again,” he said.
