Aphiwe Mapekula: Man shot dead after police find him eating corpse of woman he’d beheaded



A man has died after police reportedly found him eating the corpse of a woman he had beheaded.

Officers shot Aphiwe Mapekula, 23, in the arm, leg and stomach after bursting into his home in Mount Frere, South Africa, as he was cannibalising his victim on September 9.

Police say the victim was a woman called Thembisa Masumpa, 35, who was known to Mapekula. He allegedly beheaded her after a family argument.

Local media reports that he ignored officers’ warning shots that were fired in order to stop him. When he charged at the police with a knife, they opened fire on him.

Mapekula was rushed to Nelson Mandela Academic Hospital, where he attacked a female medic just minutes after he was admitted. He died three days later on September 12.

The cannibal’s mother was the one who first raised the alarm after seeing her son attack Masumpa as she was leaving the house.
