Murdered For Fat

Police in Lima, Peru have arrested some members of a gang who murdered people for their fat. Dozens of people have been killed, the fat removed from the bodies and sold for use in cosmetics. The investigation began when police got word that a shipment of human fat was coming into Lima by bus from the mountains. Now they are continuing to search for more gang members and the buyers. Police are also looking at 60 disappearances in the area the gang was running to see how many of them could be traced back to the human fat traffickers. No vacationing in Peru unless your anorexic people!

Wow, I bet they had to grease a few palms to get that across the border! But you just know that some relative is going to find out which company was buying and suet. Either that or that one of the gang will break ranks and spill the the (fried) beans, then that blubber will land a tallow-all exclusive with some tabloid rag and end up living it lardge.

great job sweetie!
hey i found another article with more info.
including that the buyers were italian and that human fat goes for $15,000 a gallon. so atleast the cosmetics are in europe not here. it occurs to me there ought to be a way to make getting liposuction lucrative.

Just a thought: 150M overweight people in the US at $15k @ gallon would net $2.25T. And that is if they'd each give up only 1 gallon each!
