The British newspaper “The Mirror” reported a macabre story: a woman stabbed her boyfriend then asked the butcher to chop him up and sell his meat to hide the corpse. The disquieting episode took place in the UK, where Clare Humble was found guilty of murdering her boyfriend Peter Hedley and was jailed for 20 years.
Peter Stephen Carlyon – the butcher at whom the woman turned up with the lifeless body of his boyfriend, asking him to chop up the body and sell it to the customers –testified against her during the trial. “I immediately rejected, – the man said – Peter and I were friends, we met in a difficult period of our lives. I could not believe my eyes. ”
What happened seems inexplicable. Probably a burst of anger due to business problems or to the health problems of the boyfriend of Clare led the woman to make the insane act at night, when stabbed Peter several times, putting an end to his life.
