The Sun newspaper has revealed that a man convicted of killing his girlfriend in Spain then claiming he ate her is alive and well and enjoying life in Wapping.
According to the exclusive Sun story 60-year old Paul Durant was freed after spending 12 years in jail for the manslaughter of his girlfriend Karen Durrell.
Her body was never found by Spanish police despite Durant claims that after bludgeoning Karen to death he ate what parts of her “he found edible.”
Rumours have been circulating in Wapping for some weeks that Mr Durant had a macabre past after he moved in to E1W and residents eventually worked out who their new neighbour was.
Despite his grisly claims Mr Durant has never been convicted of cannibalism and no credible evidence backing up his claims has ever been found.
