Issei Sagawa

NSFW

Issei Sagawa is a Japanese man who in 1981 murdered and cannibalized a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt. After his release, he became a minor celebrity in Japan and made a living through the public's interest in his crime. From his words... "It’s so easy to bite off her nose. As I chew the cartilage I can hear the noise. ... I use a knife to cut off more of the cartilage and put it in my mouth. I scoop out her lower lip with my knife and put it in my mouth. It has hard skin. I decide to eat it later when I can fry it. " Sagawa's story inspired the 1981 Stranglers song "La Folie", and the 1983 Rolling Stones song "Too Much Blood"See More

It's been a while since I've seen it and it was kind of hard to find. It was a 2 part documentary/interview. I'm looking for it now.

If he had done this in the USA he would have gone under the needle by now.

Yeah. He did it in France, then his wealthy father had him transported back to Japan to a mental hospital, which he was released from a year later. He ended up doing like two years for killing a girl and eating her. Must be nice.......must. be. nice.
