After Doctors Released This Patient In Venezuela, He Went On To Kill And Eat At Least 10 People

Dorángel Vargas is a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic responsible for killing and cannibalizing at least 10 people in Venezuela during the late ’90s. His crimes were so shocking and prolific that he received the nickname, El Comegente (The People Eater). Here’s the story of Venezuela’s most notorious serial killer.

Dorángel “El Comegente” Vargas kept the city of San Cristóbal in Venezuela in fear from 1997 to 1999.

The homeless man lived in one of the city’s parks and over the course of his rampage attacked, killed and ate 10 men. Some sources have Vargas’ victim count at up to 40 people, but he only confessed to and was convicted of 10 of the murders.

Vargas’ first victim was Cruz Baltazar Moreno in 1995.

Police were able to capture and detain Vargas after he killed Moreno. After his capture, police took the serial killer to a psychiatric facility for testing and counseling, according to Notimerica.

While in custody at the facility, Vargas was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.

After two years in the facility, Vargas was released after doctors were convinced that the soon-to-be serial killer was not a threat to society.

However, the same year he was released from the psychiatric hospital, Vargas claimed his first victim.

Vargas would continue to kill and eat people over the next two years. His victims were either athletic people he was able to surprise with a blow to the head, or drunk people that passed out in the park where he lived. Vargas was caught after the bodies of his victims were discovered near where he was living.

The serial killer gave chilling interviews after his capture, detailing how he chose his victims and what body parts he would eat.

In one interview, Vargas explained that he didn’t not eat his victim’s feet because they gave him indigestion. But he did compare eating humans to eating fruit.

“Have you eaten pears?” he asked one reporter. “Right, it’s the same. Eating people is like eating pears.”

Last year, Vargas was accused of killing and eating a fellow inmate during a prison riot.

According to Telegraph, the families of two men imprisoned in the facility as Vargas claim that their loved ones were dismembered and eaten by Vargas during a riot. The stories were confirmed by officers that worked in the prison through anonymous sources. Allegedly, a gang killed members of a rival gang and asked Vargas to dismember their victims, as reported by Reuters. After the dismembering, Vargas ate some of the victims while the rest of the men killed were cooked and served to the rest of the inmates. Officials were looking into those claims but Venezuela was heading towards its current economic and political crisis. Nothing has since been reported about the investigation.

El Comegente became such a part of pop culture that Bacalao Men wrote a song dedicated to his story.

Venezuelan Rising Star Carmen DeLeon Talks Break-Up Inspired “Pasado” and How Her Abuelos Inspired “Cafecito”

Venezuelan Rising Star Carmen DeLeon Talks Break-Up Inspired “Pasado” and How Her Abuelos Inspired “Cafecito”

Carmen De Leon is a rising star hailing from Caracas, Venezuela. The 20-year-old singer moved to Tampa, Florida when she was 10 years old and then two years later moved with her family to Barcelona, Spain and lived there for six years. While in Spain, Carmen found success participating in La Voz, and started to build a following that would tune in every week to see her perform. Then she lived in Mexico for a year, Los Angeles for another year and is now settled in Miami working on her music career.

In an exclusive interview with Latido Music by mitú, Carmen De Leon talked to us about her latest single “Pasado” with Cali y El Dandee, from which she drew inspiration from her very own break-up and reminiscing about the past. We also touched on “Cafecito“, the bittersweet song in memory of her grandparents, her dream collab, and more.

Pasado” is inspired by Carmen De Leon’s real-life breakup.

Carmen recruited Colombian singers Cali y El Dandee for her latest single “Pasado,” blending 80s synthpop with reggaeton, a true popetón hit you can dance to and perhaps cry to.

On working with Cali y El Dandee, Carmen has nothing but praise for the Colombian duo, “they are like my brothers, they’re insanely talented, genuine and humble.”

It was Dandee who actually wanted her to let her feelings all out for the song.

“At that moment while I was writing the song, I was actually breaking up with my boyfriend, and I had Mauricio (Dandee) saying to me: ‘Just tell me more. Whatever you’re texting him, say it out loud so we have the right words for the song’ and that’s what we did,” Carmen says.

Just like the lyrics of the song long about the past, so did the music video which was purposely made in the film to capture the “old vibe” they were seeking to portray.

Carmen feels like this is the best song that she has made in her entire life. “It’s changed my life in a way because it’s opened me up to new audiences and I love seeing people react to it and relate to it.”

Earlier this year, Carmen released “Cafecito” which isn’t about your beloved morning beverage.

Most of us would read the title “Cafecito” and think it’s just an upbeat morning pick-me-up song, but it isn’t. “Cafecito” is a bittersweet single that Carmen says she wrote, “at 4 a.m. in the middle of a hurricane because I missed my grandparents so much, and I wanted to write about what it feels like to lose someone.”

While her abuelitos were the main inspiration behind the lyrics, the song does capture the feeling of loss that could apply to those of us losing a friendship, relationship, etc.

Before I even finish the question about her dream collaboration, Carmen excitedly yelled “Camilo!,” which also happens to be one of her favorite covers she’s posted on her YouTube channel.

Carmen’s dad chimed in the interview as well to plug in his favorite cover, which is “Graveyard” by Halsey.

We can only hope that Carmen DeLeon and Camilo collab happens and that this article serves as manifestation for it.

Good luck with everything, Carmen!
