GUGULETHU, South Africa — South African police arrested a man who allegedly cut out and ate the heart of a man who was his ex-girlfriend’s lover.
The Zimbabwean national was found using a fork and knife to consume the organ, BBC reports.
Western Cape Deputy Police Commissioner Sharon Jephta said the victim, 62, was stabbed in his chest and neck and had a bike mark on his face. Police and witnesses have been offered counselling to cope with the trauma.
“It was very gruesome,” she said. “It’s definitely a love triangle.”
