Police find 2 bodies in Slovak cannibal case

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — Slovakia's top police officer says information from a computer that belonged to a suspected cannibal has lead police to a grave containing the remains of two women.

Jaroslav Spisiak says the women were in a shallow grave found Tuesday in the woods near the eastern town of Kysak.

He says the bodies — likely the remains of two Slovak women — were cut into pieces.

The 43-year-old suspect was critically wounded last Tuesday after a gunbattle with officers during an undercover police operation to apprehend him.

Police believe the man used the Internet to search for a person who wanted to commit suicide and would agree to let him eat the body.

A Swiss citizen initially agreed, but later changed his mind and informed authorities.
