Flesh-Eating Serial Killer Found Dead On Jail Cell Floor

A man was thrown in jail after he admitted to being a serial killer, but his particular method was what shocked observers. Notorious flesh-cooking serial killer, Joseph Roy Metheny, has died at the age of 62 after being found motionless on the floor in his cell.

Metheny was imprisoned in Cumberland, Maryland, after being convicted as a serial killer. In the years since his conviction, the terrifying murderer has developed a vicious reputation for violence, claiming that he chopped up the bodies of his victims and sold them to unknowing customers as barbequed meat.

According to Daily Mail, “Metheny's is probably the most bizarre serial killer story to come out of Baltimore since the 1970 movie 'Multiple Maniacs' by John Waters -- a fictional tale about a fat drag queen who goes on a murder spree and ends up getting raped by a giant lobster.”

When he was convicted, Metheny made no attempt to deny his crimes and didn’t appear frightened of the death penalty. "The words 'I'm sorry' will never come out, for they would be a lie," he told the jury.

"I am more than willing to give up my life for what I have done, to have God judge me and send [me] to hell for eternity," declared the hateful serial killer.

For a short period of time, it looked like Metheny would be facing the death penalty. However, the punishment was later overturned in favor of Metheny receiving two life sentences of imprisonment, with no chance of parole.

Metheny’s murderous tendencies allegedly surfaced when his wife became a drug addict and ran away from him, taking their 6-year-old son with her.

It remains unclear how many people Metheny actually killed in his lifetime. So far, the authorities can conclusively tie him to the deaths of Kathy Spicer, 23, and Cathy Ann Magaziner, 39.

However, on Murderpedia, Metheny has confessed to several other murders, writing: “I killed seven people, three men, and four women. Two men I chopped up with an axe under a bridge in South Baltimore. I was found not guilty for them cause they couldn't prove I did it. Under that same bridge I also killed two women and one man who was fishing, who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

However, by the time Metheny was being convicted, these bodies had disappeared, with the serial killer saying: “I showed the police where I put them about 3 years later, but they couldn't find them. So they could not charge me for them.”

During his rambling confession, Metheny infamously spoke about the horrifying things he did to Spicer and Magaziner’s bodies. “I killed and butchered their bodies up. I cut the meat up and put it in some Tupperware bowls then put it in a freezer. … Over the next couple weeks on the weekends I opened up a little open-pit beef stand. I had real roast beef and pork sandwiches…If you mix it together no one can tell the difference,” he told the horrified court.
