The Human Fat Trade

I know everybody has probably heard about this by now, but it is too strange to pass up. Police in Lima, Peru have charged a group of people with abducting and killing people for their body fat, to sell to cosmetics companies. It seems they have been very busy at this, and their murders span nearly 3 decades. The police supposedly busted a warehouse of sorts, where they would hang their victim's quartered bodies with a small fire underneath, and collect the fat in tubes as it slowly dripped out.

I wonder how many products have been using this stuff?

Here is an article about it...
