    Men accused of murder, selling human fat

    Four people have been arrested in Peru on suspicion of killing some 60 people to sell their fat and other human tissue to Italian co-conspirators for cosmetic use in Europe, authorities say.

    Signs of "an international network trafficking human fat" first surfaced about two months ago, according to General Felix Burga, head of the police criminal division.
    Peruvian press cited him as saying the fat can be sold for $US15,000 ($A16,000) per gallon (3.8 litres) in European countries.

    I was just thinking I have some fat I will donate. I could sell my fat to pay for liposuction.

    "Seems it was big fat lie concocted by police perhaps to conceal police murders of drug dealers, according to Time magazine.
    As a result, the country's head of criminal investigations was fired today. Police are conducting an internal investigation."

    This was a horrible story just to cover up all those murders? They could have used something more reasonable then some scary Texas Chainsaw Fat Bandit Murderers.....Yuck... I got sick just reading it. I know they put stuff in cosmetics we don't even want to know about....
