What does this post mean?
I'm guessing they dropped two feeder crickets in the enclosure and left them in till one of them ate the other.

OP, I wouldn't leave your feeders in the T enclosure longer than 24 hours. Also take care that the T isn't molting or they are likely to eat it instead of each other.

In the wild they eat plant matter, preferably rotting. In captivity, they're omnivores and opportunistic. They eat whatever it takes to survive. Take away their natural food source (plants) and they will eat anything available to them (insects, including other crickets).
In the wild, they would not resort to cannibalism or eating insects.
