Issei Sagawa

December 8, 2010 by staff 

Issei Sagawa, (VBS.TV) – The afternoon of June 13, 1981, Japanese named Issei Sagawa headed to the Bois de Boulogne Park on the outskirts of Paris, carrying two suitcases. The contents of these bags are the parts of the dismembered body of a comrade, a Dutch woman named Renee Hartevelt including Sagawa killed three days before and had spent the days since, eating parts of his body.

The details of the imprisonment and subsequent return Sagawa brief to Japan are too vague and complex to tell here, but for the sake of this introduction, I can say that August 12, 1986, Sagawa checked himself Matsuzawa Psychiatric Hospital and was a free man since. This is the moment in history where things get really strange.

In its 24 years of freedom since, Sagawa was a level of public knowledge of the plot from the perverse minor celebrity. He has published novels, inspirational songs, the subject of countless documentaries and magazine articles, films and exploitation in which he resumed his crime novels, manga drawings and even ran his own prnography personal “experience “. Indeed, he made his living from crime.

The prospect of this meeting not only a despicable man, but spend a few days with him was a course of apprehension. A walk in his apartment in Tokyo revealed more than a manifestation of his neurosis almost physical. Just inside the door, a wall-mounted cabinets alongside black hood filled with gargoyle-like statues, classic literature and trinkets collected over decades of travel (often with girls he met in suspicious circumstances). The chairs are stacked with stuffed toys for children. His room is like a boy of 14 years: with countless images of young girls, some painted by himself, some made of gossip magazines.
