Officials: Man killed woman, ate corpse

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Tennessee man has been charged with killing a woman, dismembering her body and eating part of her corpse in a bizarre case that's perplexing law enforcement in a small pastoral town.

Gregory S. Hale, 37, was arrested at his home - in a small rural community just outside Manchester - late Sunday. He is charged with premeditated first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse, Coffee County District Attorney Mickey Layne said Tuesday.

According to an arrest warrant, Hale confessed to killing the woman, identified as Lisa Marie Hyder, and authorities called the two acquaintances. Hale told authorities he beheaded Hyder and cut off her hands and placed the body parts in a plastic bucket, according to the warrant.

He then cut off her feet and other body parts, and placed them in another bucket. The warrant states that Hale buried the torso in a burn pile at the residence.

Hale also admitted to "eating part of the victim," according to the warrant.
