Man Killed and Eaten by Own Creepy Pets

Here's life imitating the campy horror movie Arachnophobia:

Mark Voegel, 30, was found dead in his Dortmund, Germany apartment. His body was draped in spider webs and more than 200 spiders, several snakes, thousands of termites, and a gecko were feasting on his corpse. [...]

A police spokesman said: “It was like a horror movie. His corpse was over the sofa. Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and his mouth. There was everything there one could imagine in the world of reptiles. Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards were scooped up and taken back to the webs of tarantulas and other bird-eating spiders.”

The spiders and termites managed to escape when the heating elements exploded and opened the lids to their tanks.

I don't know if this is a hoax or not, but this "story" is... three years old!!!
It was reported on february 27th, 2004. You'll have to do a search on the archives for this one.

I have to call hoax too. Way too many things that don't make any sense. Giant webs draped all over him? To what purpose? What lizard would tear off flesh just to have it taken by a spider? And what spider would want dead flesh? No doubt. A fake story.
