BRAZIL - Police in Brazil's Amazon rain forest are investigating three native Indians suspected of murdering and eating a 21-year-old handicapped man in a rare case of cannibalism, local authorities said Tuesday.
The Indians of the Kulina tribe near the Peruvian border are accused of having killed and eaten the insides of Ocelio Alves de Carvalho, a student, in the town of Envira in Amazonas state.
"The body was quartered and then carved up with more than 100 cuts — we think they ate his insides," Sgt. Osmildo Fereira da Silva of the state police in Envira told Reuters.
