Police have arrested and charged four young men for the gory, manga-inspired murder of a man three years ago whose sliced remains were found in a Brussels park, Belgian prosecutors say.
After a three-year search for the perpetrators of the gruesome killing, four men aged between 22 and 24 were arrested on Friday in Brussels, three charged with the murder and one for failing to assist a person in danger, said a spokesman for Brussels prosecutors, Jean-Marc Meilleur.
Three of the suspects confessed but one denied involvement, he said.
“We know they’re all manga fans,” said Meilleur, adding that none of the suspects had a criminal record.
On September 28, 2007, two thighs and a lower abdomen were found by a passer-by between two park benches in the Duden park in a south-west Brussels suburb.
