  • A Brazilian murder suspect — who police believe may have engaged in “cannibal practices” — has been arrested at an airport in Portugal with a suitcase containing “suspicious meat” and bloodstained clothing, officials said.
  • Begoleã Mendes Fernandes, 26, was taken into custody at Lisbon Airport on Monday after getting off a flight from Amsterdam, where he was suspected of killing 21-year-old Alan Lopes a day earlier.
  • Portuguese media reported that the pieces of meat that were found inside a plastic bag stuffed into Fernandes’ luggage could be human flesh.
