Police Disgusted When They Realize What Man Is Doing To Dead Woman's Body

Police came across a truly revolting scene and were forced to make an extreme decision.

If you asked someone to list the most disturbing things a person can do, there’s a good chance that cannibalism is going to be somewhere on that list. Nevertheless, although cannibalism is almost universally reviled, the barbaric act still occurs all over the world.

Now, South African police have shot and killed a 23-year-old man after he refused to stop eating the body of a person he killed by decapitation earlier in the day. The cannibal, Aphiwe Mapekula, was in his home when police stormed the building after receiving reports that a murderer was in the area. In the last three weeks, this marks the second case of cannibalism in South Africa.

According to the Daily Mail, Mapekula did not listen to the arresting police officers, who were demanding he stop eating raw human flesh and put down a knife he was holding. The victim, who is believed to be 35-year-old Thembisa Masumpa, was killed at Mount Frere. The witnesses, who were neighbors of Ms. Masumpa, have revealed that the victim previously worked ‘odd jobs’ around the Mapekula home.

Witness reports relay a gruesome murder scene, describing how Mapekula slit Masumpa’s throat with a carving knife and began hacking away at her neck until he was able to detach the woman’s head. Local police were informed of the incident when Mapekula’s mother – disgusted and horrified by her son’s actions – called the local station. "I never raised a son like this one. I never imagined this,” said the cannibal’s shocked mother.

By the time, police officers arrived at the cannibal’s home, he was already sinking his teeth into human flesh. Captain Edith Mjoko, who led the team to arrest Mapekula, was one of several officers who opened fire on the murdering cannibal when he advanced on the officers with a knife.

Captain Mjoko later provided a succinct summary of events in a public report, writing: “He [Mapekula] killed her with a knife by cutting her throat. When the mother of the suspect saw what was happening she rushed and called the police to the scene. When they arrived the suspect was busy eating the flesh of the deceased. Police ordered him to stop and to hand himself over. He went berserk and stormed at them with the knife. Several warning shots were fired to deter him but in vain.”

After being shot, Mapekula was taken to a regional hospital, where he later died. A spokesperson for the hospital, Sizwe Kupelo, clarified the details about Mapekula’s treatment, saying: “He was transferred with gunshot wounds and needed emergency surgery. But he unfortunately died.”

The Mount Frere Mayor, Bulelwa Mabengu, is horrified by the act of violence in her community and suspects that this horrific crime was related to some kind of substance abuse, telling RNews: “I believe that drugs and substance abuse was a major contributing factor and yearn to call upon law authorities to show a more proactive visibility in our area.”
