A Tennessee man has been arrested for allegedly killing a woman and then consuming part of her remains.
According to the Associated Press, Coffee County District Attorney Mickey Layne, said that Gregory Scott Hale was arrested for the stomach-turning crime at his home late Sunday evening.
Court affidavits filed against him said that Hale admitted to killing and eating part of Lisa Hyder’s corpse.
CNN reported that affidavits also reveal that the suspect chopped off the 36-year-old woman’s head, hands and feet before burying her torso outside his home.
Police learned of the gruesome crime after a neighbor gave them a tip that they believed Hale had murdered someone.
Another bizarre aspect of the sickening case is that authorities do not believe the victim and the accused knew one another and that the killing was random.
The 37-year-old was charged with premeditated first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse. He is being held on $1.5 million bail and is scheduled to appear in front of a judge later this month.
