The dismembered body of a 4-year-old girl was found in the fridge of a Chinese recluse who reportedly once said human flesh was "delicious."

Police in Guangzhou city found the remains of the child, Li Lingli, after her grandmother spotted blood outside the apartment of a migrant worker, Agence France-Presse reported. Li disappeared Friday, prompting a police search of all 50 rental apartments in the living compound.

Neighbors said the alleged killer rarely spoke to people in the area but sometimes talked to himself when he became excited while watching a communal television, according to the AFP.

"He said that human meat was in fact delicious," Chinese media quoted a neighbor as saying, recounting comments the suspect allegedly made while watching a film depicting people being killed in battle.
