A CANNIBAL has been caught by cops as he cooked his victim’s brain in a pan on the hob.

Horrified officers found the dismembered body of the dead man after they were called to a flat in East London.

Blood was splattered on the walls and floor — and the maniac was frying the brain in the kitchen.

The sickening discovery came after neighbours made frantic 999 calls about a “terrible attack”.

The body, believed to be that of the 45-year-old bachelor tenant of the flat, had suffered multiple injuries including dismemberment.

One police officer leaving the scene on Tuesday evening was reported to have told a neighbour: “It’s horrible. It’s terrible in there.”

A man was arrested at the flat in Walthamstow, East London.

Last night it was revealed that the murder suspect had been released hours earlier from a mental home. The victim, named by neighbours as Brian Cherry, is also believed to have received psychiatric treatment.

Ewww, that is so gross! I just don't understand what would make someone do something like this. I really don't think this man should have ever been released from the mental home.

d :D

Because we have "Care in the Community" which means our system is overstretched and we turn these people loose as soon as we can.

From September 2009:


Jane Mishcon, who chaired the inquiry in to Mr Cherry’s death and who later met Bryan in custody, even described him as a “cheeky chappy”. Her panel’s report outlined a catalogue of errors in the way East London Foundation Trust dealt with Bryan, who beat shop assistant Nisha Sheth to death with a hammer in 1993...

It also criticised the way his transfers to increasingly less secure accommodation was handled and the fact an alleged sexual assault on a 17-year-old girl by Bryan just days before the killing was not taken seriously enough. Following the killing, Bryan was sent to Belmarsh and then transferred to Broadmoor where he was able to kill 59-year-old Mr Loudwell – just over two months after the death of Mr Cherry...

He was eventually sentenced to life terms and returned to Broadmoor where he is unlikely to ever be released.
