Sometimes you come across a news story that's straight out of a horror movie - or worse. Such a case has arisen in the small Pakistani town of Darya Khan.

Two brothers have been arrested after cooking and eating over 100 corpses.

Local police chief, Ameer Abdullah was tipped off to the suspicious activities of brothers Mohammad Arif Ali and Mohammad Farman Ali after a 'stench emanated from the house,' The Daily Mail reports.

On top of the dreadful smell, law enforcement were able to follow a trail of ants within the house, leading to a woman's legless body, which the brothers admitted to digging up before grinding the lower limbs into meat.

Horrifyingly, despite serving prison time for the desecration of a corpse, the brothers have now been taken back into custody after police discovered the head of a 3-year-old boy boiling in a pot for use in a curry.

Police now suspect that the Ali brothers have eaten over 100 corpses from local graveyards.

Here, we head into interesting legal territory. It may seem shocking that Pakistan had no laws regarding Cannibalism, but Cornell Law School points out that:

In the United States, there are no laws against cannibalism per se, but the act of cannibalism would probably violate laws against murder and against desecration of corpses.

It's sad that such horrible things have to even be thought of, but Pakistan is now attempting to pass bills making it illegal to rob a grave 'with intent to cook, eat, sell or to use for magic purposes.'

What do you think of this horrible crime?
