Red Footed Cannibalfly eats Prey

Subject:  Bug Identification
Geographic location of the bug:  East Berlin PA

Your letter to the bugman:  Can you help identify the bug in the attached picture? It looked like it was eating the other bug, and its long body reminded me of a dragonfly.  I really have no idea what it is.  Your help is very much appreciated.

Red Footed Cannibalfly eats prey

Dear Cindy,
The predator in your image is a Giant Robber Fly in the genus Promachus, and we believe it is a Red Footed Cannibalfly.
