Cannibalism literally mean eating the living humans. Aghors are known for eating flesh of humans but not living but dead. It's a ritualistic practice to get rid of all baricades in human mind of good and bad.

I don't know whether still a true exists in this world or not. If you visit the Kinaram Ashram in Varanasi, you will amaze to see the philosophy of Aghoris, quite similar to Western and Hinduism Vedanta.

It means the same, whether living or dead but I agree that it's purely ritualistic for the Aghors.
