Police in Dresden say they have arrested a 55-year-old police officer on suspicion of murder after the body of another man was found in the Erz mountains in eastern Germany.
Police say that the victim was killed and dismembered, and that his body parts were buried on a piece of land in the mountainous region which belonged to the alleged killer.
The arrested police officer has given a partial confession and led investigators to the body parts.
The 55-year-old confessed to slashing the throat of his willing victim and then cutting his body into small pieces and burying them, police said.
The victim, a 59-year-old man from Hanover, Lower Saxony, had “since his youth fantasised about being murdered and eaten,” Dresden police chief Dieter Kroll told a news conference.
He added: “The suspect has told us that he then cut the victim into separate pieces, including many very small pieces, and that he also cut through bones.
