[Ed. – Make that ‘allegedly eaten by his own pigs.’ One gleans from the story that none of the neighbors witnessed this atrocity, and we strongly doubt that any of the ‘suspects’ were interviewed or, if they were, had much to say.]
The man in his 70s lived alone on his farm in Osiek, Lower Silesia, and hadn’t been seen since late December.
He was likely eaten by the animals between December 31 and January 8, the Gazeta Wrocławska newspaper reported.
The elderly farmer had long been abusing alcohol, and when police were called they found his pigs out of their pigsty and wandering freely around the farmyard.
Magdalena Serafin, prosecutor for the surrounding district, told the Gazeta the man was last seen alive on New Year’s Eve.
At the time, he was reportedly fetching water from a well, which was where his bones were discovered by a neighbour on January 8.
“We do not know the exact date, but in the period between December 31 and January 8the victim was eaten by pigs,” Magdalena said.
