A man has admitted to killing a farm owner and eating part of his body before 'making art' with his blood and ashes.
Luis Alfredo Gonzalez Hernandez was arrested by officers from Scientific, Penal, and Criminal Investigative Body (CICPC) in the Barlovento region of the Venezuelan state of Miranda. The killer has been dubbed the 'cannibalistic artist' by local media.
Director of the CICPC, Douglas Rico, said: "After his arrest and through interrogation he admitted his guilt in the incident, stating he had quartered and eaten a large part of the human."
According to cops, the unnamed victim had hired Hernandez to carry out a bizarre funeral service.
Rico continued: "The deceased had hired him for a funeral service, which consisted of killing him (the victim), eating part of the body and making paintings on canvas with his blood and ashes."
At the scene, investigators found documents belonging to other people and are now working to find out if any of them are reported as missing persons.
There were also other pieces of 'art' found at the scene, which will undergo forensic analysis to find out if they contain any human remains.
This isn't the country's first cannibal killer. In 1999, Dorancel Vargas Gomez - known as El comegente or 'people eater' - was arrested by police and later confessed to killing and eating 10 men.
Cops believed that homeless Vargas used a spear and occasionally rocks to kill his victims. It's suspected he would then keep parts to cook and eat.
He told officers he was killing for a two-year period. Many believe he killed more than the 10 to which he admitted, with some police estimates putting the number of victims at 40.

According to local media, Vargas told one journalist that eating people was comparable to eating pears. He also told reporters he had 'made soup' out of the body parts before eating them.
He was sentenced to solitary
confinement at a mental institution, according to reports.
