On January 16, nine-year-old Deepu Kumar went missing from his home in Ludhiana, India.
When police reviewed CCTV footage from the area, they noticed him walking with Vikesh Kumar, a 16-year-old boy who lived on the same street. Unfortunately, that was the last time that Deepu was seen alive. When they found and arrested Vikesh, the boy was already dead.
What Vikesh confessed to the police would make anyone’s stomach turn.
Vikesh (middle) admitted to strangling Deepu in the bathroom, chopping his body into six pieces with a gardening tool, and then eating flesh from his thigh and drinking his blood.
