(iWIDK By Allie Beauregard) – Just hearing what this man did turns the stomach – imagine being one of his customers.
China’s Zhang Yongming, 57, was executed Thursday following his July 2012 conviction for murdering 11 people over several years, chopping their body parts into pieces and selling them as animal meat to neighbors.
Yongming had a known danger streak since 1979, when he was charged with intentional homicide and life in prison, but was released in 1997.
When investigators linked him to the murder of a 19-year-old last year, evidence also tied him to 10 other missing person cases since 2008.
According to reports, Yongming would strangle his victims – sometimes with his bare hands – and chop their bodies into small pieces, either feeding them to his dogs or burning them to eliminate the evidence.
The Daily Telegraph even revealed that some body parts, after being visibly dried outside Yongming’s home, were sold at the market as “ostrich meat.”
While it is possible that Yongming himself ate his victims, his neighbors can sleep soundly knowing that the “Cannibal Monster” has been silenced.
