[Update 6 April 2014]  In 1961, scion Michael Rockefeller trotted off to New Guinea in search of artifacts for the Museum of Primitive Art, funded by his father the governor.   A new book, cheekily titled Savage Harvest, reveals his grisly fate:

[Update 29 July 2014] A spectre, ever lurking beneath the surface:

The hysteria caused by the spread of Ebola has led also to the spread of rumor and conspiracy theories. Angry crowds have accused foreigners of bringing the virus in their midst: In April, the threat of violence forced MSF to evacuate all its staff from a treatment center in Guinea. In Sierra Leone, which has the largest number of Ebola cases at present, thousands protested over the weekend outside the country's main Ebola treatment facility in the eastern city of Kenema.
Police had to disperse the crowd with tear gas and a 9-year-old was injured in the leg by a police bullet, Reuters reports. The demonstration was sparked, the news agency claims, by a rumor spread in a nearby market that the disease was a ruse used to justify "cannibalistic rituals" being carried out in the hospital.

[Update 13 October 2016]  A banquet in Venezuela:

Según la denuncia de los familiares de la presunta víctima, habría sido Dorángel Vargas quien llevó a cabo los asesinatos al interior del penal, un reo famoso por sus crímenes de canibalismo en Venezuela, quien además habría amenazado a los que rechazaron comerse los restos de los internos muertos.
