Cannibal Gang

Here's a frightening little news story from the Philippines. About a gang that eats parts of its victims. The thing that the story, which really is not very illuminating, doesn't explain is why the gang members believe that eating parts of their victims will help protect them. Does this belief come from some local superstition or religious tradition? I see shades of Renfield in Dracula, eating creatures to gain their strength (I have a character similar to this in my latest novel). Who knows what was going on in their heads, but I think it's interesting anyway.
