“Cubes” of human flesh floating about in the sewer trigger about a thousand fears, and a possible serial killer is just one of them. (“We all float down here, Georgie.”)

Via New York Daily News:

Fears of a serial killer on the loose in Michigan mounted after cops found cubes of human flesh in a drain pipe that bear disturbing similarities to remains discovered in another pipe last August.

A sanitation crew first spotted the 4-inch-by-4-inch pieces of “skin and fat and little bit of muscle tissue” in a sewer pipe outside Detroit, in Warren, Mich., police told ABC News.

The two cubes of flesh appear to closely match those discovered earlier this year, which were found about 5 miles away in a sewer in Sterling Heights.

Police said that those chunks, 10 in total, which bore an intricate tattoo, belonged to a white woman with a large build, CBS News reported.

    Hmmm. One the one hand Detroit is the perfect city for a serial killer who doesn’t really mind that no one pays attention to his crimes, but I think it’s more likely that this is just a dealer’s way of punishing people.

    • I think perhaps a punishment killing would be more “open” less hidden than this? It dosn’t realy deter others if you hide the punishment?

        Theoretically, you’d only need one or two cubes to make one’s point, but obtaining only one or two cubes would likely be much more difficult than just turning a body into many cubes.
