A 59 year-old London man has been sentenced to two life terms for manslaughter after committing two grisly "Hannibal Lecter" style murders. One of mental patient Peter Bryan's victims was an old friend of his. Bryan murdered Brian Cherry, 43, at his home in Walthamstow and proceeded to fry the victim's brains in a frying pan before consuming them. Bryan was released from a secure hospital in 2001 after serving a seven year sentence for bludgeoning a 20 year old shop assistant to death with a hammer.
Police, who were alerted by neighbours after hearing screams, found Mr Cherry's dismembered body and brains in a frying pan.

Bryan told the officers: "I ate his brain with butter. It was really nice.

"I would have done someone else if you hadn't come along. I wanted their souls."

Aftab Jafferjee, prosecuting, said: "The last two killings have taken place in a two month period when, on each occasion, the defendant was under the care of the Mental Health regime -which regime has manifestly failed to protect the public.

"The case reveals a chilling insight into the mind of a man who has literally developed an appetite for killing."

We can be thankful that justice was served this time and that this man will never see the light of day again. It is ludicrous to say the least that bank robbers get 20 year prison sentences, while a clearly disturbed man who enjoys killing young women with a hammer is released onto the streets after just seven years.
