PostSubject: Gang Killed People Killed For Their Fat: Peruvian Police   Fri 20 Nov 2009, 6:42 pm

The indigenous people are being scapegoated for a bullshit story so more can be liquidated and their land seized. C'mon, who the hell believes a story like this? Next thing you know the media will start talking about cannibalism.

Quote :
LIMA,
Peru — A gang in the remote Peruvian jungle has been killing people for
their fat, police charged Thursday, draining it from their corpses and
offering it on the black market for use in cosmetics. Medical experts
expressed skepticism that a major market for fat might exist.

Three suspects have confessed to killing five people for their fat,
said Col. Jorge Mejia, chief of Peru's anti-kidnapping police. He said
the suspects, two of whom were arrested carrying bottles of liquid fat,
told police it was worth $60,000 a gallon ($15,000 a liter).


Mejia
said the suspects told police the fat was sold to intermediaries in
Lima, the Peruvian capital. While police suspect the fat was sold to
cosmetic companies in Europe, he could not confirm any sales.

Medical experts expressed doubt about an international black market
for human fat, though it does have cosmetic applications. Yale
University dermatology professor Dr. Lisa Donofrio speculated that a
small market may exist for "human fat extracts" to keep skin supple,
though scientifically such treatments are "pure baloney."

At a news conference, police showed reporters two bottles of fat
recovered from the suspects and a photo of the rotting head of a
27-year-old male victim. Suspect Elmer Segundo Castillejos, 29, led
police to the head, recovered in a coca-growing valley last month,
Mejia said.

Mejia said Castillejos confessed that the gang would cut off its
victims' heads, arms and legs, remove the organs, then suspend the
torsos from hooks above candles that warmed the flesh as the fat
dripped into tubs below.

Six members of the gang remain at large, Mejia said, adding that in
addition to the five killings the suspects confessed to, the gang may
be involved in dozens more. Castillejos told police that the band's
fugitive leader, 56-year-old Hilario Cudena, has been killing to
extract fat from victims for more than three decades.

At least 60 people are listed as missing in Huanuco province, where
the gang allegedly operated, this year alone, though the province is
also home to drug-trafficking leftist rebels.

Mejia said police received a tip four months ago that human fat from
the jungle was being sold in Lima. In August, he said, police
infiltrated the band and later obtained some of the amber fluid, which
a police lab confirmed as human fat.

On Nov. 3, police arrested Serapio Marcos Veramendi and Enedina
Estela in a Lima bus station with a quart (a liter) of human fat in a
soda bottle. Their testimony led to the arrest of Castillejos three
days later at the same bus station.

The three are charged with homicide, criminal conspiracy, illegal
firearms possession and drug trafficking, according to a statement from
Lima Superior Court. Police said they were searching for the alleged
buyer.

Police named the band the "Pishtacos" after a Peruvian myth dating
to pre-Columbian times of men who killed to extract human fat,
quartering their victims with machetes.

Mejia said Castillejos claimed his was not the only gang engaged in such killings.

Medical authorities reached by The Associated Press said human fat
is used in anti-wrinkle treatments – but is always extracted from the
patient being treated, usually from the stomach or buttocks.

"There would be a risk of immunological reaction that could lead to
life-threatening consequences" if fat from someone else were used, said
Dr. Neil Sadick, a professor of dermatology at Cornell Weill Medical
College in New York.

Dr. Adam Katz, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of
Virginia medical school, was incredulous when told about the Peruvian
ring.

"I can't see why there would be a black market for fat," he said.
"It doesn't make any sense at all because in most countries we can get
fat so readily and in such amounts from people who are willing and
ready to donate that I don't see why there would ever be a black market
for fat, of all tissues."

It's unbelievable that HuffPo would publish such gibberish.

I just wonder who are the kind of people that dream up these operations. What's even scarier, is that teams were probably deployed in order to actually perpetrate some of these acts, just to give the story some "credibility"

People that look too deep into how stories are 'manufactured' will become sickened and dismayed if they accept the underlying truth. It's the first step.

Some will become more fearful, but I think many many more will start to turn their back on this system. They're creating these manufactured stories at such a brutal pace now, it is just astounding. It just seems like they are increasing the risk of people bailing on the system. Perhaps that's what they want, or perhaps they're trying all out to incite riot and rebellion. Or, sometimes, as I'd like to think, they are panicking because they are losing control, and they are doing everything they can to hide their weakness.
