British nurse 'planned to rape, kill and eat' 14-year-old girl

'I'll eat everything from your feet to your face. Roasts, sausages even your offal,' nurse told victim

A British nurse planned to have sex with a 14-year-old girl before killing and eating her, Canterbury Crown Court has heard.

Dale Bolinger, 57, allegedly groomed his victim online and organised to meet her at Ashford International rail station in Kent. He even bought an axe from a local DIY shop the day before, the court heard.

But nobody turned up to meet him and he was arrested five months later after FBI investigators discovered his messages and alerted British police.

The real identity of his victim has not been discovered. She called herself 'Eva Gonza' and claimed to be a 14-year-old Mexican girl living in Germany.

"I've got the cleaver and the experience," he told her. "Really want to do it? I would want to have your body afterwards for food..."

Bolinger said he was willing to kill his victim by the method of her choice and she responded by saying she would like that to happen, said prosecutors.

In one message, he wrote: "I don't like waste and I'll eat everything from your feet to your face. Roasts, sausages even your offal. I've a great recipe for Haggis and black pudding. You'll be completely consumed."

The NHS hospital nurse, who was a regular user of the Dark Fetish Network, used a profile picture of Naomi Campbell on his profile and called himself 'meatmarketman'.

Prosecutor Martin Yale said Bolinger's chat logs made "graphic reference to sexual abuse, murder and cannibalism of women and children of a wide range of ages, including a baby". He boasted that he had eaten a 39-year-old woman and a five-year-old child, saying the meat of children was much more "tender".

British police arrested him at the local hospital where he worked and later found photographs of him posing with an axe on his computer, reports Kent Online.

Bolinger denies sexually grooming a child and told officers he would have called police and social services if the girl had turned up. According to prosecutors, he claimed that people "gave false information" in the chat rooms and that he took everything "with a pinch of salt".
