A Russian man killed a drinking partner after he and his friends ran out of snacks at a vodka party - then sold the leftovers as pork at a market.
The 35-year-old admitted stabbing his fellow drinker, 41, to death before slicing flesh off the corpse, which he cooked and ate, police said.
The next day, the cannibal took more meat to a local market on Russky Island, Vladivostok, saying it was pork.
A local man bought the meat - but was sickened by the smell as he cooked it.
'He purchased some 'pork', but noticed as he cooked it, the smell was strange,' said investigative police spokeswoman Avrora Rimskaya.

Officers went to his house where the suspect confessed to both murder and cannibalism, she said. Read More
