Inside one of his pants pockets detectives found a plastic bag holding a suicide note. After reading the note, the detectives knew that what they were dealing with was no ordinary suicide.
The one-bedroom apartment Zack Bowen shared with his girlfriend sat atop the Voodoo Spiritual Temple and Cultural Center, Voodoo Priestess Miriam Chamani proprietor.
On the stove in the tiny apartment were two pots. Inside one was the charred head of a woman. Inside the other were a pair of hands and a pair of feet. On the counter beside the stove were sliced carrots and potatoes. In the oven, lying on turkey-basting trays, were two arms and two legs.
At least two of the limbs had seasoning sprinkled on them.
The woman's torso was wrapped in a plastic bag and stuffed into the refrigerator.
The body parts belonged to Bowen's girlfriend, 30-year-old Adriane "Addie" Hall.
According to Bowen's letter, he strangled his girlfriend on Oct. 5. Then he repeatedly raped her corpse until he passed out drunk beside her. The next morning he went to work delivering groceries and came up with a plan for disposing of her body. When he got home he dumped Addie into the tub and used a handsaw and a knife to cut her into pieces.
Then he cooked her."

basically, i just found this crime incredibly disgusting, and yet also quite intriguing. even though it doesn't particularly relate to anything we've talked about in class, i thought it would be cool to read about. so clearly this guy is rather insane and a complete freak, and i really don't understand why anyone would want to cook their dead girlfriend...but maybe you guys have some ideas??
