    I presume this must be a well known story in Australia? Is the photo of the victim or the killer? And why was the killer so stunned to be found guilty?

    ‘Cannibal’ Pleaded Guilty Of Murder

    BRISBANE, Australia – Robert Ian Logan, who was accused of murdering his housemate before drinking his blood and using it to write messages on the wall of Beenleigh home, has been jailed for life.


    A Brisbane Supreme Court jury found Logan, 23, guilty of the murder of former flatmate Benjamin Peter Huntingford at his Adelaide Circuit home in Beenleigh, 35km south of Brisbane, on June 21 2006.

    Mr. Logan also told detectives that he had twice stabbed the victim’s pet dog “Butch” in a brutal and ferocious attack when the dog tried to intervene in the killing.

    During the trial the jury heard evidence Logan consumed various drugs such as heroin, speed, crack and marijuana at his shared property. There was also conflict between his two housemates over the “thrashing” of a recently purchased motorcycle.

    On Monday, at 11 a.m. the jury spokeswoman declared, “We (the jury) find the defendant (Logan) guilty of murder.”

    Members of Mr Huntingford’s family cheered silently with supporters punching their fists in the air, while family and friends of Logan gasped in surprise and choked back tears.

    Logan himself was stunned, shaking his head in disbelief. At one point he looked towards his lawyers and said, “I don’t understand.”

    Prosecutor Michael Byrne, SC, said police questioned Mr Logan several days after the death and he eventually admitted to the slaying.

    “He said he cut his neck and watched him crawl up the hallway. He asserted he drank some of the deceased man’s blood.” he said.

    Acting Justice Judge ****, in sentencing Logan, told him: “You will know there is only one sentence I can impose.”

    “You are sentenced to prison for life.”

    Mr Huntingford’s body was found covered with a pair of underpants placed over his head. His body was said to have died from a “complex gaping wound” to the neck that went from “ear to ear”.

    An autopsy also confirmed that the victim received 19 significant injuries in the attack, many of which are believed to have occurred after his death.

    Those injuries included eight wounds to his almost “severed” penis, injury to his anus and stab injuries that penetrated Mr Huntingford’s heart, liver, spleen, a kidney and lung.

    Mr Huntingford’s blood had been used to write offensive messages on walls and a fridge at the Beenleigh house.

    Police found the bloody handprint, which matched Mr Huntingford’s DNA, of Logan on a door at the house and boot prints from a set of size 10 pair of “Blue Steel” work boots belonging to Logan.

    Logan told investigators his motivation for the killing was the result of an unwanted homosexual advance made by Mr Huntingford when they lived together.

    Mr Huntingford’s father, Peter Huntingford, said Mr Logan was known for telling bizarre stories and once told him as a child he had attended a human sacrifice ceremony with his father in New Zealand.

    Mr Logan told him he ate parts of the person’s body.

    Mr Huntingford also said Mr Logan once told a story about a man who got into a fight in Fortitude Valley and began “biting and taking chunks” out of his opponent.

    Mr Huntingford said he believed Mr Logan had in fact been talking about himself.

    has been pretty big in the news here. I believe that is a picture of the victim. I have no idea why he was surprised at the guilty verdict as he pleaded guilty, maybe he was NQR which i believe you would have to be to be into cannibalizum.... The drugs also could have something to do with it, they are well known to Fcuk peoples minds up.

    It's amazing what some people are capable of doing. Just recently we had a crazy drug-fcuked guy set his GF alite at a petrol station and would not let anyone near her while yelling "let her burn"..... She lived until she got to hospital.

    I had a good mate in NZ that i used to go riding with from OZ we used to give him stick about his strange accent. 55555 A real good guy.
    Then when i first came to OZ in the mists of time no one here could understand me...........Now people are suprised when they learn i was originally from NZ my accent only appears slightly if i am around other Kiwi's. Anyway i look at it like this we have this great sporting rivalry and love to sledge between nations but when the sh1t hits the fan we are right there for each other.
