A German policeman has been arrested on suspicion of killing and chopping up a man he met on the internet who apparently fantasised about being killed and eaten.
Officials said that the suspect is believed to have stabbed the victim at his home in the eastern state of Saxony before chopping up the body and burying pieces in his garden.
They said the killing happened on November 4, about a month after the two first met in an internet chat room.
Dresden police chief Dieter Kroll said the suspect was arrested on Wednesday at his workplace in in the eastern city.
Officers then searched the man’s property and he showed them several places where he had buried body parts.
