Man Sues Over X-Ray That Led To Cannibalism Allegation

`The Newark man who was mistakenly accused of cannibalism is suing a doctor and the Newark and Parsippany police departments.

Victor Salazar and his wife said they suffered embarrassment and needed counseling after an X-ray at Immediate Medical Care Center in Parsippany last year raised questions about his diet.

When a doctor asked if he had eaten any bones, Salazar forgot about the soup he had the day before that included pieces of chicken feet.

Radiologists and the Morris County medical examiner wondered if the film showed bits of finger bones, so police began an investigation.’
