A Mexican man dubbed the ‘Cannibal of Puebla’ who allegedly killed his wife, ate her brain in tacos, and used her skull as an ashtray has been arrested in Mexico.


The suspect, identified as Alvaro,32,  was picked up at the couple’s home in Puebla on July 2 and taken into custody.



He is accused of murdering his wife, a mother of five on June 29 while under the influence of a prohibited substance.


During questioning, he allegedly told officers that Santa Muerte (Our Lady of Holy Death) and the devil had ordered him to commit the crime.


Following the killing, Alvaro allegedly dismembered victim Maria Montserrat Animas Montiel’s body and placed her remains in plastic bags.


He allegedly threw some of them into a ravine behind the home and kept the rest inside the property.



According to sources close to the case, he confessed to eating part of his wife’s brain in tacos and using part of her shattered skull as an ashtray.


Two days after the killing, he allegedly called one of his stepdaughters to confess his crime.


The victim’s mother, Maria Alicia Montiel Serran, told local media: ‘He told one of her daughters to come and collect her mum because “I already killed her and put her in bags”.


Grieving Maria Alicia added that Alvaro chopped up the 38-year-old victim’s body ‘with a machete, a chisel, and a hammer’. She went on: ‘I called him crying, asking why he did that to her if she wasn’t a bad person.’


According to Maria Alicia, the suspect confessed: ‘I killed her, I cut her into pieces, and I threw her into the ravine in bags.’


She added that he claimed: ‘She didn’t suffer.’


Maria Montserrat married Alvaro less than a year ago. She had five daughters, aged 12 to 23. The youngest two lived with the couple and, they were subjected to violence and sexual harassment from Alvaro , according to their grandmother.


Maria Alicia said: ‘He would spy on them while they showered, and my daughter, well, you know that out of love, she always sided with him.’
The victim’s family says Alvaro – a builder – is a drink and drug addict and was often violent towards his wife.


The family says the couple often posted about their worship of Santa Muerte on social media. The police reportedly found a black magic altar in their home.


Maria Alicia said: ‘Drugs, he used them, and he snorted cocaine and everything. Well, I think he had mental problems because to do something like that…

‘He adored the one down below, well, I know because she had Santa Muerte tattooed on one of her colourful legs.’


The victim’s family has not yet been able to lay Maria Montserrat to rest because the police are still searching for some of her remains, which also need to be DNA-tested.


Her mother demanded: ‘Give her to me so that I can bury her and give her a proper send-off.

‘That’s what I want, and don’t let him go free because I believe no mother would want her daughter to be sent to her in pieces. I demand justice.’
The Puebla Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the case.

Young children left traumatized after finding a human skull in a plastic bag in their garden

Two youngsters have reportedly been left ‘traumatised’ by the discovery of human remains in their garden.


Tegan Mayall, 25, who lives in Aberdeen, UK told the Press and Journal her four-year-old son Noah and their neighbour’s daughter were playing in the garden of the apartment block where they live before they found a human skull wrapped inside a plastic bag.

 ‘They both ran over to the side of the garden and grabbed this bag and we weren’t sure what was in it.

‘The kids were messing about with it because they thought it was a Halloween decoration, because that’s what it looked like.

‘It’s normally a quiet building and everyone goes out and it’s not what you expect to find in a garden.’ she said

Police officers worked at the scene for five hours on Wednesday afternoon, May 3 asking all residents of the building to remain in their flats for the duration of the search.

NBA star Kawhi Leonard

The sister of LA Clippers star, Kawhi Leonard has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of an elderly woman who was found with a cracked skull on the bathroom floor at Pechanga Resort Casino in California in 2019.


NBA star Kawhi Leonard

Leonard’s older sister, Kimesha Williams, 39, and one Candace Townsell, 42, were sentenced on Friday for the killing of Afaf Assad, an 84-year-old woman from Long Beach, per The Press-Enterprise.


NBA star Kawhi Leonard


Both women were convicted of first-degree murder, robbery, and elder abuse in February after a monthlong trial.


Deputies from the Southwest Sheriff’s Station said they were called to the four-star hotel and casino in Temecula – a two-hour drive south from Los Angeles – at about 8am on August 31, 2019, to find Assad lying unconscious on the bathroom floor.


She and her husband of 59 years, Youanness, 93, entered the casino with a purse containing $1,000, according to The Press-Enterprise. Assad eventually went to the bathroom, where Williams followed her, while Townsell was on the lookout, at one point blocking a custodian from entering.

No witnesses saw the attack on Assad unfold but a woman in a stall heard a ‘thud’ before Williams eventually left the bathroom and made a ‘beeline’ for the exit with Townsell.

Assad died four days later at a local hospital after being admitted with ‘serious injuries.’

Her bright pink purse went missing and was never found, the Press Enterprise reported. Riverside County Senior Deputy District Attorney Marcus Garrett claimed during the trial that the purse had been ripped from Assad’s arm, pointing to a ‘deep laceration’ where the strap had been on the elderly woman’s body.

Garrett also contended that Assad had been either pushed or fell. Leonard was not present at his sister’s sentencing on Friday.

Prior to Assad’s murder a little less than four years ago, Williams and Townsell were well known to officials at the Pechanga Resort and other Inland Empire casinos.

In 2015, Williams was permanently banned from Pechanga after stealing someone’s wallet, a casino official told the Press-Enterprise News.

Leonard’s sister was also permanently barred entry from the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon and the Yaamava Casino in Highland after ‘ripping winning tickets’ out of people’s hands, Garrett shared in a court filing.

Additionally, Townsell had been banned from the Soboba Casino Resort near San Jacinto in 2017 for 90 days, following the disappearance of two purses, according to Garret’s filing.

She was then banned from Morongo Casino in 2018 after a shoving incident with her boyfriend.

Williams was previously convicted for another crime, involving attempted robbery, in Los Angeles County, according to Press-Enterprise News.

Leonard, a two-time NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors – has three sisters other than Williams. His father, Mark Leonard, was shot and killed on January 18, 2008, at the Compton car wash he owned.

Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has tackled former BBNaija housemate, Ifu Ennada after she claimed to be born again following reactions to her dress to the AMVCA award.

Naija News earlier reports that Nigerians accused the reality star of having a connection with the devil, in which she explained via her Insta stories that her dress is simply a work of art and there are no spiritual connections.

According to Ifu Ennada, she is a child of God with a bible app on her phone which she uses to study the word of God daily.

“I am born again. I have a whole Bible App I use to study the Word of God daily. Pls stop this narrative of me being devilish because of my AMVCA look. I am a child of God…it’s all fashion.” the reality star said.

Reacting to the statement, the Anambra script interpreter, Uche berated the reality star for claiming to be born-again, adding that the exaggeration was another form of demonic manifestation.

In his words; “Dear Ifu, born again christians no dey allegedly spend one million naira on perfumes in a week, neither do they brag over AMVCA8 dress. Sometimes exaggeration is another form of demonic manifestation. You do not need to #advertise say you are born again Christian, Ariwo Ko Ni spirituality, actions speak louder than #AMVCA8 dress. First, the outfit you wore to #AMVCA2022 no dey on top 10 list of #best dress for that event, so it came as a preposterous surprise that you dey make so much unnecessary noise over am, we get it, you thought the event THEME for this year #AMVCA was Masquerade parade, but it is ok, #nollywood itself Na masquerade swag, ask bobrisky 21 story building”
