SHOCKING: Cannibal jailed for killing, eating mum with his dog


A Spanish waiter, Alberto Sanchez Gomez, has been jailed for more than 15 years after he strangled his mother, Maria Soledad Gomez, and ate her remains.

Alberto has been dubbed the cannibal killer of Ventas, the Madrid neighbourhood where the gruesome incident occurred.

He was arrested on February 21, 2019, and told police at the time that he ate his 68-year-old mother ‘bit by bit’ with his dog.

Detectives found his mother’s remains stored in plastic bags in a fridge and drawers around their family home.

Local reports stated that Alberto cut her remains into 1,000 small pieces, and detectives found her head, hands, and heart on her bed.

At a trial in Madrid’s Audiencia Provincial court in May, the 28-year-old was found guilty of homicide and desecration of a human corpse.

The prosecution had said that the convict used a carpenter’s saw and two kitchen knives to cut up his mother’s body.

Alberto, whose father died when he was 15, claimed in court he had heard ‘hidden messages’ when he watched TV and voices telling him: ‘Kill your mum.’

He said that the voices were those of neighbours, acquaintances and celebrities.

However, a jury of nine, including six women and three men, dismissed Alberto’s defence that he was experiencing a ‘psychotic episode’ when he killed his mother.

He was convicted and sentenced to 15 years and five months in prison.
