There is a similar story from the black metal scene in Norway, where a guy ate a piece of his friends brain after he found him dead(suicide) in his
apartment. The vocalist "Dead"(dead was his artist name, hehe) of the black metal band Mayhem took suicide by shooting himself in the head with a
shotgun, using bullets he got from a guy called Varg Vikernes (who was a session bassist in Mayhem for a period and also had a project called Burzum a
while ago and is now serving his 10th year in jail for killing the guitarist of Mayhem) for Christmas.
Eyronomus, the guitarist of Mayhem found "Dead" in his apartment with his brain splattered all over the place. The first thing Eyronomous did was
to take pictures of his friend lying there in a pile of blood, after which he ate a piece of his brain and carved of a piece of his skull, which he
later used for a bracelet. What Eyronomous also did was to use the picture of the dead "Dead" on a bootleg LP called "Dawn Of The Blackhearts" (a
friend of mine actually owns a copy of that rare vinyl). (run an altavista image search for “Dawn Of The Blackhearts” if you want to see the picture.
Note: its not a nice photo)
As I mentioned, Varg Vikernes (who gave Dead the bullets he shot himself with for Christmas) later on got in an argument with Eyronomous, because he
had heard that Eyronomous was planning on torturing him to death in the woods. This resulted in Varg Vikernes stabbing Eyronomous numerous times with
a knife (I think Eyronomous had 27 wounds to his body), among this was a stab to the head which Varg Vikernes commented on in court... he said: "One
of the first was to his skull, I actually had to knock the knife out afterwards, haha"
You can find a whole lot more info on this on the internet if you run a search on Mayhem, Burzum or Varg Vikernes. There is also a lot of info on this
and on the whole Norwegian black metal scene in the book Lords Of Chaos
