The New York Post offers a piece on the escaped con who is as violent and evil a criminal as Thomas Harris' fictional Hannibal Lector.
A prosecutor pursuing a case against one of the three men who broke out of a Southern California prison Friday reacted: “Oh, my God, they let Hannibal Lecter out.”
Hossein Nayeri, a former Marine who had escaped to his native Iran in 2012, faces charges of kidnapping, torture, aggravated mayhem and burglary. Deputy District Attorney Heather Brown told the Orange County Register the man is “diabolical … sophisticated, incredibly violent and cunning.”
Brown says Nayeri helped kidnap a marijuana dealer in 2012, burned him with a blowtorch and forced another suspect to cut off the dealer’s penis because Nayeri thought the man had buried money in the desert. Soon afterward, investigators say he left for Iran, but they caught him while he was on his way to Spain to visit family.You can read the rest of the piece via the below link:
