SLOVAKIA’S TOP POLICE officer has said officers have uncovered a grave containing the remains of two women – using information gleaned from a computer that belonged to a suspected cannibal.

Jaroslav Spisiak, pictured, said the women were discovered in a shallow grave in the woods near the eastern town of Kysak earlier today.

The bodies — likely the remains of two Slovak women — were cut into pieces.

The 43-year-old suspect was critically wounded a week ago after a gunbattle with officers during an undercover police operation to apprehend him.

Police believe the man used the Internet to search for a person who wanted to commit suicide and would agree to let him eat the body.

A Swiss citizen initially agreed to be part of the scheme, but later changed his mind and informed authorities.
