Police killer Stefano Brizzi: Cannibal dies in prison
An Italian who was jailed for murdering a Metropolitan Police officer and trying to dissolve his body in acid, has died in prison.
Stefano Brizzi, 51, was sentenced in 2016 to life in prison for murdering PC Gordon Semple and was ordered to serve at least 24 years in jail.
The Ministry of Justice confirmed Brizzi, an HMP Belmarsh prisoner, died in custody on Sunday.
His trial was told he had tried to eat his victim’s flesh.
Brizzi denied trying to cannibalise parts of PC Semple, from Greenhithe in Kent, by cooking and then biting into a rib.
But at his sentencing, the prosecution said an expert odontologist had since confirmed that even though Brizzi claimed not to remember it, he had in fact tried to eat flesh.
