Cannibal Welshman killed by police

Cerys Yemm met Matthew Williams one night at a bar. What happened to her that night has traumatized police officers who are now receiving psychological counseling.


British police shot and killed a man while he was eating flesh from the face of a 22-year-old woman in Wales. According to the BBC, 34-year-old cannibal/killer Matthew Williams invited young shopworker Cerys Yemm to his hotel room where he “went Hannibal Lecter,” on her – a reference to ‘Silence of the Lambs’, which is a Hollywood movie depicting two similarly depraved cannibals. Hannibal Lecter was played by fellow Welshman Anthony Hopkins.

Police found Yemm dead at the scene on October 30, having succumbed to horrific injuries. Williams was found, according to reports, eating an eyeball and half of Yemm’s face. Williams was Tasered by the arresting officers and died.

According to media reports, young Yemm met Williams at a bar where they chatted. After persuading the hapless woman to go to his room at the Sirhowy Arms Hotel, he attacked her. Some witnesses said that ‘Fifi’, as Williams was known, appeared to be sober before the attack but may have been under the influence of narcotics. Williams had recently been released from prison. Sirhowy Arms is a bail hostel: an approved accommodation for convicts released on probation.



Traumatized, the arresting officers are now receiving psychological counseling.

Yemm’s mother, Paula (49),brother Cavan and sister Shannon asked to be left alone to grieve. Their sister was described as “fun-loving” who had been at a Halloween party with friends just days ago. Members of the community expressed shock. Yemm was no stranger, however, to violent companions. Her former boyfriend, Matthew Hayman, was jailed in 2014 for setting his house on fire after splitting up with her. Hayman first torched the bathroom at his home in Abertillery, Wales, and then tried to kill himself by turning on a gas stove. He admitted to the crime and was jailed for 3 ½ years.
