Jose Luis Calva, is an aspiring author of horror stories. He may also be a cannibal and a murderer. He is pictured in the A.P. Photo above being treated by paramedics after he was struck by a car while fleeing the Mexican police. Calva is suspected in the gruesome deaths of three women. Police discovered Calva's girlfriend's torso in his closet, a leg in the refrigerator and bones in a cereal box. He may have been responsible for two other mutilation murders as well. Alejandra Galeana, a 30 year old single mother and pharmacy clerk, had been Calva's girlfriend. She was reported "missing " last Friday. (Unfortunately this was too accurate of a description as dismembered parts of her body were found in the apartment.) Jose Luis Calva apparently admitted to police that he had boiled some of his girlfriend's flesh but that he hadn't eaten it yet. Investigators were trying to determine if the chunks of fried meat found in a frying pan in the apartment were human.
Body parts were found spread throughout the apartment (Spreading oneself too thin?) Calva is being investigated in connection with three mutilated bodies had been found in the city.Police found the draft of a novel titled "Cannibalistic Instincts."Calva was still hospitalized on Thursday. Galeana's dismembered body was discovered in a closet; a leg and flesh from an arm were in the refrigerator, and arm bones were inside a cereal box, the prosecutor's office said. Calva also a suspect in the mutilation killings of an unidentified prostitute in April and an ex-girlfriend, Veronica Martinez. Coincidentally, Veronica Martinez was also a single mother and pharmacy worker. Martinez's dismembered body was found in 2004. Martinez's body was found chopped to pieces on the city's outskirts.
Apparently Jose Louis Calva had similar taste in girlfriends and in food! With real stories like this, who needs fictional Halloween tales?
Update 10-26: Jose Luis Calva was arraigned on Thursday on charges of murder and desecrating a corpse. He refused to make a formal plea, saying "I can't get my thoughts together right now." He previously acknowledged killing 32-year-old girlfriend Alejandra Galeana. Prosecutors think he killed and dismembered two other girlfriends, but have not charged him for those crimes.
"He killed her because he was high on cocaine," said defense attorney Humberto Guerrero Plata. "He didn't eat her, he just cut her body up." Calva told police he cooked the flesh to feed it to neighborhood dogs.

I had a real scary thought. Suppose Jose Luis Calva (alleged girl friend eaterl) and Tiffany Sutton (vampire lady) hooked up. They come home from work.
Tiffany: Jose, you look sad, what's eating you?
Jose: Nothing dear, that would be cheating on you and I would never do that! Here, let me turn on the stove, I will cook you, er.. for you.
Tiffany: That's ok. I really am not hungry, I think I will just have a little drink and turn in early tonight. Besides, I know you are tied up at the moment... Surfer Dude
