The body of a 13-year-old boy has been found partially eaten and beheaded alongside Satantic objects in a French villa, reports say.
Cops who made the horrific discovery shot dead an unnamed suspect as he tried to flee the scene in Tarascon in Bouches-du-Rhône.
Police officers went to the villa on Sunday after a man reported he saw a bag containing body parts.
They found the partially eaten decapitated body inside a bag along with satanic objects when they arrived, reports Le Figaro.
It is believed the body belongs to a 13-year-old teenager who had run from home in Marseille two days earlier and was on his way to his mum's home, a source told 20 Minutes.
A manhunt was launched immediately and a few hours later the occupant of the residence was located by police in the city centre of Arles.
Neighbours spotted the man in his 30s, known for mental health problems and being violent in the past, earlier trying to escape through the house's roof, according to Liberation.
