Spanish cannibal heard voices: ‘Kill your mum’

Alberto Sanchez Gomez has been jailed for the dismemberment and cannibal murder of his mother in Spain.

A Spanish cannibal who shared “piece by piece” of his mother with his faithful dog has been jailed for 15 years.

Alberto Sanchez Gomez — called the cannibal killer of Ventas — has been convicted in Madrid of murdering his mother Maria Soledad Gomez.

According to cops, Gomez, 28, worked as a waiter and had a combative relationship with his mom.

He strangled then dismembered his 68-year-old mother, according to Spanish media.

After butchering the dead woman, he stored her remains in his fridge and slowly began eating her.

Often, he shared the body parts with his dog.

A jury dismissed his claims he had been experiencing a “psychotic episode” when his bloodlust boiled over on Feb. 21, 2019. Officers found his mom’s remains stored in Tupperware containers in the fridge.

The court heard that Soledad Gomez’s head, hands and heart were allegedly found on her bed. Her body had been sliced into more than 1,000 small pieces.

Gomez was convicted of the murder in May after a two-week trial at Madrid’s Audiencia Provincial court.

But the killer told the court he heard “hidden messages” when he watched television, along with voices that told him: “Kill your mum.”

He added that he didn’t remember cutting up his mother or eating her.

“I’m very repentant. I suffer anxiety from the moment I wake up,” the killer told the court.  “I think of my mum and I’m absolutely heartbroken.”

Before the murder, chronic boozer and druggie Gomez had been arrested a dozen times for mistreating his mother and breached restraining orders several times.

“He began to tell us as he was being transferred to a police station the he had strangled her from behind,” one officer testified.

“He also said he had eaten parts of her body, some cooked and some raw, and had given some pieces to the dog.”
