South Korea man blames octopus for murder

In a bizarre murder trial, a man accused of killing his girlfriend is claiming that an octopus did it.

The unnamed defendant is facing the death penalty if he is found guilty of murdering his 22-year-old girlfriend, also unnamed. In his defense the man is claiming that his girlfriend choked to death on Sannakji, a type of edible octopus that is consumed while it is still moving.

Suspiciously, his girlfriend took out a large life insurance policy just one month before her death, guaranteeing her boyfriend quite a large sum in the event of her untimely demise.

"The medical evidence is thin since no official autopsy was performed to verify these claims and the body no longer exists."

Excuse me? Please point to the part of my sentence that refers to "an entire culture". I am perfectly entitled to consider something grosse and unfeeling in other human beings if that is how I see it. I mentioned him and his girlfriend and THAT IS ALL. How interesting that you would jump to so many conclusions based on how I feel about folk who eat live animals, I don't care what part of the world they come from if that is what is being done I am going to be grossed out. I stand corrected, you did not make that statement about an entire culture... however, even judging the two people in questi... [More]

I stand corrected, you did not make that statement about an entire culture... however, even judging the two people in question as "barbaric" its pretty elitist. Especially when stating you don't care what happens to either of them simply because one of them ate a still squirming octopus appendage. If its gross to you simply saying that would have been more effective than calling people uncivilized, which is what barbaric means. I find it interesting that you found what one of them ate the deciding factor in your reaction than the fact a woman was possibly murdered by someone she trusted. Oh, a... [More]

Anyone else find it very convenient that the body was quickly burned without a proper autopsy, basically condemning the case against the men? Who gets said money if this man is locked up/executed???

I see Andrew Zimmern on Bizarre Foods eat live animals all the time. He travels the world and explores ask different kinds of food. And although I don't condone eating something alive it happens in numerous cultures, not just Asian cultures. It is normal for a lot of people. Who are we to judge them as uncivilized? It happens everywhere, every day! Crustaceans get thrown into boiling water ALIVE!! The steak you enjoyed the other day... well, that cow was slaughtered in the most horrific way, factory line style, while it was alive! What the difference? Point is, don't judge people based on how ... [More]

I would guess nobody does if he is found guilty. or the insurance company does. maybe the insurance company has friends/owns part of the funeral/morgue or are in some way related to it? condemn the man and they save themselves a bunch of cash

Amazing how indifferent some cultures to displaying their inhumanity and utter indifference to life.
