Wedding feast

Four people in the Philippine province of Palawan have been arrested for murdering a wedding guest, and serving his roasted remains at the reception: (via darwin)
Farm laborer Eladio Baule, his son Gerard Baule and nephews Sabtuary Pequi and Johnny Buyot allegedly killed the victim, Benjie Ganay, on July 17 after Ganay accidentally touched Eladio Baule's daughter's bottom during her wedding party, Bacuel said. The four suspects, who were drunk at the time, then set fire to Ganay's body and Bacuel said the aroma of roasting flesh may have tempted the group to eat parts of the burnt body.

(Which translates, essentially, as "seemed like a good idea at the time".)

The crime was only discovered about eight days later, after the two nephews confessed to the police who originally found their accounts too shocking to believe. The nephews insist that they did not take part in the murder but were only forced to eat parts of the body.
