Pishtacos are also known as "fat vampires" as they are supernatural creatures that use their magic to rob passing travelers of their fat. The legends concerning them had died off in popularity, but lately, reported gang activity in Peru helped to bring the popularity back. The gangsters had knocked people unconscious, kidnapped them, and actually rendered them into actual fat. They sold them on the black market but were caught and arrested. (Scary and gross...)

Many don't believe the stories concerning the gangsters as no other valuable body parts were touched and the murders were never truly proven. It just goes along with the urban legend of pishtacos and their ability to eat the fat of humans to remain immortal. (1)

No one really has much evidence concerning this urban legend.
