  • Description

    A former Luftwaffe flier was summoned on Thursday (1 March) to appear at a Canadian inquest which has already heard of his agonizing decision to eat the flesh of an English nurse who died in the aircraft he was piloting.

    The six-man Coroner's ju???y said they weren't satisfied with just hearing a statement from the p???ot, Martin Hartwell, read out in court. The jury demanded his appearance in the Yellowknife court.

    In Edmonton, more than one thousand miles (1,600 Kms) away, Hartwell addressed a specially convened news conference on Thursday and told of the 'plane crash in Canada's frozen North, and how he chose to eat the flesh of 27-year-old English nurse Judith Hill, rather than die of starvation.

    Hartwell has been issued a subpoena, but he is not compelled to appear since he is in Alberta, out of the jurisdiction of the court.

    SYNOPSIS: Martin Hartwell, the crashed pilot who admitted having eaten human flesh, held a news conference in Edmonton, Canada, on Thursday and explained his actions.

    Hartwell has been subpoenaed to appear at an inquest into the deaths of the crash victims, but he is not compelled to appear as Yellowknife has no legal jurisdiction over his home town of Alberta.
