A teenager claims to have killed his room-mate then eaten parts of his brain and internal organs.
The 19-year-old, named only as Robert A, has confessed to murdering the 49-year-old man he met in a homeless shelter, it was reported.
Robert crushed his room-mate's skull with a 9kg iron bar before using a butcher's knife to remove his intestines. Officers found the body lying in a pool of blood, with body parts spread around the room and half-eaten on a plate in the kitchen.
The murder was discovered yesterday when a cleaner went into the shelter. Robert allegedly told her about the murder and asked her to contact the police, according to The Times.
The man, known as Joseph S, is thought to have been killed about three days ago and his body was found at the ground-floor, two-bedroom flat in Vienna where the two men lived alone.
A police investigator said: "We are supposed to be prepared for situations like this, but this surpasses the limits of imagination.”
Robert was placed at the shelter, which was set up to provide accommodation for mentally ill people living on the street, this month. His room-mate was registered there since June.
