“The Cannibal Of Atizapán”, Gave His Neighbors Human Meat

The documentary series “Caníbal, total indignation” reaches its third episode recounting the outcome of part of the bodies of the victims of Andrés Filomeno Mendoza Celis in Atizapán, Mexico.

In the chapter entitled “El Caníbal”, Jonathan J. González, captain of the Atizapán Fire Department, recounts the findings in the house of the Lomas de San Miguel neighborhood, in that locality, which served the femicide to carry out the murders and to hide the remains of their victims.

Although not all the remains of the women murdered by this subject remained in the place where they were deprived of life, since Mendoza Celis used his knowledge as a butcher, a job to which he dedicated a large part of his life, to further his psychopathic acts.


According to the publication of El Universal de México, a plate with a cut of meat and a tortilla showed that Andrés Filemón consumed the meat of the women whose lives he took, as reported by the fire captain when he went to the scene of the crime and verifying that “perfect cuts of meat” were reserved at the scene, in addition to kitchen tools, anatomy books, murder films, knives with blood stains, cooked meat, pieces of skin hanging from a shopkeeper, and blood .

Likewise, he details that in a blue notebook he wrote the day, month and year of each femicide he carried out, writing down addresses and the weight of each part of the body of his victims. They calculate that in that notebook there were between 30 or 40 data on women.

A basement converted into a butcher shop

Upon reaching a part of the house, it was discovered that the Atizapán cannibal had a basement, which was entered through an overlapping wooden staircase.

A table full of blood, knives of various dimensions, an apron, a Hannibal Lecter-style muzzle, a recording camera, among other utensils, were found in the place impregnated with a penetrating aroma, as described by the authorities.

Notebooks with structured data on the weight of each of the body parts of the victims were also found at the scene, a method carried out in the butcher shop to find out what price they will give in the market.

“There was a specific sheet where he put the breasts weighed 2 kilos, the leg weighed 4 kilos […] There were many pages that he wrote, about 20 pages filled on both sides,” said Jonahthan González.

He distributed the meat among his neighbors

Andrés Filemón was known in the community for being a nice man, quiet, but kind to his neighbors, a fact that perhaps caused him not to raise suspicions when he approached them to give them meat, presumably from his victims.

“Mr. Andrés distributed human meat, he invited several policemen in the area to eat, several people, the lady of the store on the street […] he did invite a lot of food, in fact, he specifically invited carnitas, which was what he said he did, ”said a witness who rented in the place where the cannibal carried out the crimes.

Andrés dissected the meat like steaks, a cut that was found on the plate when the proceedings began at the home where he killed and dismembered his victims.

But not only did he give away the meat, he also sold it by the kilo, since he argued that they gave him a lot of meat.

“I told them that it was enchilada meat and even wild boar meat that ‘was very good, let them try it’, the other two neighbors even told us that they did give it to them and that they did eat it.”

From Edomex to Oaxaca

Originally from Oaxaca, Andrés Filemón visited his community once a year, located in San Sebastián Río Dulce, Municipality of Zimatlán, where he brought meat in coolers and when he distributed it, he said that it was of pork origin, as the municipal president of demarcation, Javier Barroso, after the stories of people interviewed by the authorities.

Upon learning about the hypothesis that Andrés Filemón consumed human flesh, the people who received the meat that the femicide offered them were amazed and even began to suspect that not only the meat, but also the clothes that the subject wore, was his. victims.

However, among his neighbors in Atizapán, the femicide told them that the product he was offering them was wild boar, acquired in Oaxaca.

When questioned about the possible anthropophagy of Andrés, the Central Prosecutor for Attention to Crimes Related to Gender Violence, Dylcia García, stated the following: “Since it does not correspond to the investigation, that question will not be answered. ”.
