23-year-old Mitchell Harris, a convicted child rapist, may not have been given the death penalty by a court of law, but he was dealt much worse by a couple of his fellow inmates. Nathan Mann, a 24-year-old convicted murderer, brutally disemboweled Harris, with the help of a 33-year-old inmate named Michael Parr.
Harris was lured into Mann’s cell, where Parr pinned him down. Mann then slit his throat with a makeshift scalpel; the sort of prison contraband which guards are constantly confiscating, though inmates inevitably find ways to make and then conceal.
Mann proceeded to stab Harris’ eye with a pen, and once he was dead, cut his stomach open. Disturbing reports allege that Mann and Parr planned to remove Harris’ liver and share it between the two of them in a sickening cannibalistic act. But after cutting Harris open, they couldn’t bring themselves to do it.

A source inside the prison at the time of the murder stated:
“It was barbaric. Mitchell’s body was discovered shortly after breakfast. He was in a terrible state. His killers had somehow managed to overpower him, keep him down and keep him quiet before disemboweling him.”
Opposing Views reported on the lengthy criminal histories of the three inmates involved in this horrific incident:
Harris was sent to jail the year prior to his death for raping a young girl. The 23-year-old also had committed a number of other offenses, including rape, when he was just a young teen.
As for Mann and Parr, they were arrested and charged with murder, and in 2012, they were told by a judge that they would spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Mann was described by a psychiatrist as “a remorseless, callous psychopath” who “harbors cannibalistic urges.” It’s a good thing he is behind bars, restricted to taking out his darkest urges on the bottom feeders of society, like pedophile Mitchell Harris.
