"El Canibal de la Guerrero"
José Luis Calva Zepeda (June 20, 1969 – December 11, 2007) was a Mexican writer and serial killer. Calva has been accused of murder in up to eight separate cases, all involving women. Calva had also confessed to cannibalism. In October 2007, forces of the Federal Preventive Police went to Calva's home to arrest him under the suspicion that he was responsible for the disappearance of his girlfriend Alejandra Galeana, who was last seen on October 6. He was found eating a dish of human meat seasoned with lemon. Calva tried to escape by jumping through the window, severely injuring himself, but was captured. Inside his flat, the police found the mutilated body of his girlfriend, human meat in the refrigerator, a frying pan with cooked human flesh and human bones in a box of cereal. Aside from that, an unfinished book titled Instintos Caníbales o 12 días(Cannibal Instincts or 12 days) and a picture of Anthony Hopkins portraying Hannibal Lecter was also found. Calva's is the first case of cannibalism reported in Mexico for almost 500 years.
