Kyrgyz Man Suspected of Murdering and Eating His Girlfriend

A man suspected of killing and dismembering his girlfriend has been detained by authorities in the capital of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek police said Monday.

"Multiple body parts of a young woman were found in a dumpster on Panfilova Street over the weekend by passers-by who called the police," a police representative said.

According to preliminary information, the suspect, who police said was a drug addict, killed his 24-year-old girlfriend during an argument and proceeded to dismember her body into 28 pieces.

He allegedly tossed her head into the basement before stashing the remaining body parts in the dumpster.

Police noted that pieces of fried meat were found in the suspect's apartment.
