Dorangel Vargas, AKA:“Hannibal Lecter of the Andes”is a serial killer and cannibal in Venezuela. He was a homeless man who used to hunt passersby at a park in the city of San Cristobal,Tachira .

He confessed to have eaten up 10 mens in two years.

 Vargas said he prefers the taste of men to women and will not eat hands, feet or testicules , “although I’ve been on the point of trying them on various occasions.” He said he rejected overweight men because they had too much cholesterol, and the elderly were spared because their flesh “is contaminated and very tough.”
