Cannibals disembowelled inmate paedophile 'to eat his liver'
TWO prisoners who disembowelled a fellow inmate so they could eat his liver were told by a judge they are likely to spend the rest of their lives behind bars. Michael Parr, 33, and Nathan Mann, 24, shared fantasies of killing while serving life sentences in neighbouring cells at Frankland Prison, County Durham.
Mitchell Harrison was placed in the Frankland Prison, which doesn't have the best record of keeping its degenerates safe. Last year Ian Huntley, who was doing life for the murder of two teenage girls, had his throat slashed. Harrison would find a more grisly fate.
They lured child rapist Mitchell Harrison, 23, into Mann’s cell where Parr pinned him down, Newcastle Crown Court heard.
Mann, described by a psychiatrist as “a remorseless, callous psychopath”, slashed Harrison's neck with a scalpel made from plastic cutlery and a razor blade.
He also stabbed Harrison in the eye with a pen and, after he was dead, cut open his abdomen.
Mann and Parr had planned to cut Harrison’s liver in half and share it, but in the end could not bring themselves to do it, the court was told.
The case has echoes of the film Silence of the Lambs, in which cannibal Hannibal Lecter boasts of eating a victim's liver "with some fava beans and a nice chianti".
The judge, Mr Justice Openshaw, said both men presented a “gross and obvious danger” as he handed them fresh sentences to be served on top of their existing ones.
Mann, “one of the most dangerous men in the criminal justice system”, was already serving life with a minimum term of 24 years after he climbed through the window of a nursing home in Leicestershire in 2007 and killed two vulnerable patients.
