The case of the Meiwes,the German cannibal, is widely known. However, what is lesser known is the story of one that got away, or rather the one that was thrown back.
Meiwes’ defense was based on the fact that several potentials were eliminated; I mean they were let go before the eating and killing part started. The sex part happened, but no body parts had been cut off before they left. Either the main course chickened out or Meiwes rejected the guy(too fat, not fat enough, a teacher). Meiwes laywer claims it isn’t murder if the victim wanted to be eaten and die – and it happened in that order.
So as part of the defense, some of the potentials were called as witnesses.
One of the guys that had to testify was a married teacher. He had never told his wife of his involvement. Can you imagine that conversation?
1. I had an affair
2. with a man who gave it to me up the bum
3. who wanted to cut off my penis and eat it
4. then kill me
5. but he ultimately rejected me.
I mean really, what do you do with that? No Kobe diamond will make it better.
I figure if he had just gone to his wife before, explained what he wanted, she probably would have been more than willing to help him live out his dream.
I know I would.
