Hannibal Lecter on Craig’s List
We’re going global with this post readers! Imagine you’re surfing the want ads on Craig’s List and you come across an individual seeking someone who is willing to be killed, cooked and eaten… What would you do? Personally, I would ask if they would eat my liver with a side of fava beans and wash it down with a nice chianti, but that’s just me.
A Swiss man found such an ad and called the individual assuming it was some kind of joke. Turns out the nutbag was completely serious. The person who posted the ad lived in Kysak, Slovakia and the person who responded to the ad notified the police. An officer was sent to pose as the victim, and when he broke his cover, shots were fired. Both the officer and the real life Hannibal Lecter caught bullets before he was brought into custody.
How do cops determine who gets sent in to the house? Is this the type of job someone jumps to volunteer for or are they like, “Hey rookie, you’re taking the lead on this one,” and just send the new guy in?
