Police say a 21-year-old man was arrested for soliciting the dark web for a young girl to kill, eat and then have sex with the corpse.
Alexander Nathan Barter, 21, was arrested on Friday, October 19th in an undercover sting reported by KTRE.
According to an affidavit, an undercover officer saw posts allegedly written by Barter on the dark web, where he described that he was looking for “anyone interested in allowing him to commit necrophilia and cannibalism to contact him, and gave two encrypted email addresses at which he could be reached.”
The agent posed as someone interested in the request and responded to the post.
“Nice! I’m in East Texas. How old is your daughter? Can we kill her?” Barter allegedly replied.
According to the affidavit, Barter allegedly described his plan to have the girl take a hiking trip with the father that would end with the young girl being killed, murdered, and cannibalized.
Barter allegedly told the agent to purchase new clothes and a “burner” phone. He told the undercover agent to report his “daughter” missing and claim she ran away from home.
“I’m not going to change my mind about this. I really want to do this,” Barter allegedly wrote in an email.
Barter was arrested by authorities as he was about to leave his house to meet the “girl” and agent at a hotel.
The affidavit said he had a knife and a plastic bag with him at the time of his arrest.
