Nathaniel Bar-Jonah (born David Paul Brown, February 15, 1957 - April 13, 2008) was an American child molester and cannibal. He also was a cook, and served food which possibly contained human body parts, but he claimed the meals contained deer meat. When detectives investigated his apartment, they found journals that contained coded writing, and after the journals were decoded with the help of the FBI, it was learned that he had written recipes including childrens' body parts, and had also referenced serving the recipes to neighbors. He sometimes pretended to be a law enforcement officer in order to kidnap children. He is also a suspect in some child disappearances, including that of a 10-year-old boy named Zachary Ramsey. He died in a Montana prison in 2008 of a heart attack.
