The taboo topic of cannibalism has had significant cultural significance across many tribal societies. Ritual cannibalism has been part of the grieving process for many groups, particularly in the South Pacific cultures, many of which still continued to practice this into the late 19th century. Although in the modern era most cultures have largely abandoned the practice, there have been reports of ritual practice, or occurrences of cannibalism in times of great desperation and famine, as well as criminal acts committed in times of war and civil unrest.
Some of the most shocking examples of modern-day cannibalism have been revealed in nations such as the United States, where serial killers such as Albert Fish and Jeffrey Dahmer not only committed horrible acts against their victims, but also consumed their flesh. Even still, such cases seem far away, but every once in a while a case will come out revealing horrific practices of cannibalism in the modern day. From two siblings who ate the remains of their brother to avoid arrest, to the woman who ate her 3-month old, read on to discover some of the most horrifying cases of modern cannibalism.
