A man in India known as the “beer man” has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murder. As his calling card, the guy apparently left a can of beer by the bodies of his victims. Here’s the wire story:
An Indian killer, nicknamed the “beer man” for reportedly leaving empty beer cans near the bodies of his victims, has been sentenced to life in prison.
Ravindra Kantrole, aged in his early 30s, was suspected of being behind seven murders in south Mumbai between October 2006 and January 2007. The only link in the cases was a beer can left by each body.
However, after his arrest two years ago, Kantrole was charged with only three of the seven murders and won an acquittal in two cases.
The Mumbai court ruled that the forensic evidence, coupled with witness testimony, was sufficient to convict him of the murder of a homeless man.
He was sentenced by the court on Friday.
