Melville Hussey, Bayonne, N. ., a member of the U. S. Army's egal section in. Manila, obtained bnfessions from the man-eating apanese. He said one of them, Lt. Hajime Ainoda, told him human meat was aten because the men's physical ondition was desperate, and animal meat was difficult to obtain. "Whenever possible we avoided killing by eating the bodies of leople who died from illness, or vere killed in action or were executed for crimes," Ainoda explained. He said "at least two bodies of [apanese soldiers were eaten by us," but Hussey reported evidence hat at least ten were eaten. Ainoda, a medical corpsman of he Suzuki unit, admitted leading one cannibalistic patrol in which :our Filipinos were captured. Rikimi Yamamoto, one oJ four members of a deserted reconnaissance unit, said they joined the Suzuki unit and "found that they were practicing cannibalism." "We frequently ate human .meat as our dinner. Boiled it with vegetables and ate it," hg said. "Meat was brought into camp by patrols who had cut it up and dressed it.' "Sometimes the meat was dried and sun-cured. Since no other meat was available, we had to eat human flesh. For this reason, Filipinos were captured and butchered. I was so hungry I ate it, although I would have preferred pork."
