Sagawa dreamed about cannibalism when he was 6 years old

What follows is one of the most disturbing cases ever recorded.

Born in 1949 in Kobe, JapanSagawa said he first dreamed of cannibalism when he was 6 years old.

His favorite story as a kid was Hansel and Gretal, and he even recalls staring at his elementary school classmates’ thighs and thinking, “Mmm, that looks delicious.”

As he got older, his cannibalistic fantasies took on a sexual element, and he began to dream about cannibalizing women, especially Western celebrities like actress Grace Kelly.

At the age of 23, he first tried to fulfill his wish when he broke into the Tokyo apartment of a young German woman wearing a Frankenstein monster mask.

Thankfully, she woke up before the attack and was able to overpower the 4ft9in Sagawa.

When arrested by police, Sagawa testified that he had intended to sexually assault the woman, believing he would be treated more leniently than if he had said he wanted to eat her.

His wealthy father paid the young girl to drop the sexual assault allegations, and Sagawa was set free.

In 1977, 28-year-old Sagawa was accepted at Paris‘The Sorbonne University has a reputation for studying languages ​​and literature.

It was there that he formed a friendship with Dutch student Renee Hartevelt, and she often came to his apartment to give him German lessons.

But Sagawa was consumed by her sick lust and purchased a rifle with the intention of killing the 5ft11 Renee and cannibalizing her own.

He regularly hires prostitutes and brings them back to his apartment with the intention of killing and eating them, but each time he is unable to carry out his crimes.

On the night of June 11, 1981, when the 25-year-old came to her apartment for dinner, Sagawa crept up behind her while she was reading poetry and shot her in the neck.

He said he briefly regretted the murder, then recalled: “I thought about calling an ambulance, but then I thought, ‘Come on, don’t be stupid’ .

“You’ve been dreaming about this for 32 years and now it’s actually happening!”

He then engages in a few days of truly gruesome violence, raping Renee’s corpse before eating parts of her flesh.

Some of the meat he eats raw, while others he cooks before consuming.

Over the course of the next two stomach days, Sagawa ate part of Renee’s breasts, calves, lips, and thighs, until deciding it was time to dispose of her body.

He bought two large suitcases and put her body parts in them before hailing a taxi. The anonymous taxi driver joked about whether Sagawa’s heavy bags contained a corpse as he helped him with them, before driving him to a nearby park.

The desire to cannibals becomes intense around June when women begin to dress less and expose more of their skin.

As he tried to dump the suitcases containing Renee’s body in the Bois de Boulogne Park, two terrified joggers saw blood gushing out of them and alerted the police.

The police were called in and were able to connect the case to Sagawa with the help of the taxi driver.

Inside his apartment, they found the remains of a meal that included cooked human flesh as well as Renee’s photo identification card.

He was arrested and detained in France for two years, where psychologists examined him.

As happened in 1972, his wealthy father stepped in and with the help of a top lawyer, Sagawa declared himself insane and unfit to stand trial.

He spent the next four years in a French maximum security psychiatric unit, during which time he famously wrote and illustrated a novel, In The Fog.

The book tells the story of a man killing a woman, raping her corpse, and eating her flesh, leading many to conclude that it was the true account of his crimes.

EVENT STATUS

In 1985, gruesome crime scene photos from Renee’s murder and faeces were leaked to the press and published in a popular French magazine.

Outrage over publication led to one reporter being arrested and 200,000 copies of the magazine seized by authorities.

After being deported back to Japan following the backlash from In The Fog, he was sent to a Tokyo hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Japanese doctors determined he had a personality disorder but was not legally insane, and could be criminally responsible for his despicable crimes.

However, the French authorities were unwilling to help with the prosecution and so, due to a legal loophole, Sagawa was allowed to go free in 1986.

He became a celebrity in Japan and even starred in a 1992 porn movie in which he pretended to eat a woman.

Sagawa has also written nearly 20 books and a weekly column in a Japanese magazine.

He told an interviewer that he still couldn’t help but see a beautiful woman and “wondered what she could taste like”, though he claimed he would never. now act on his lowly promptings.

Sagawa also insists cannibalism is “simply a fetish”, adding: “If an average man likes a girl, he will naturally feel a longing to meet her as often as possible, get close to her, smell her and kiss her, right?

“For me, eating is just an extension of that. Honestly, I can’t understand why people don’t feel the urge to eat, to consume others.”

“The desire to eat cannibals becomes intense around June when women start to wear less and reveal more skin,” he said.

“Just today, I saw a girl with beautiful shorts on the way to the train station. When I see such things, I think of wanting to eat someone again before I die. “

In 2018, a movie called Caniba was made about his life.

He has never apologized for his crimes or contacted Renee Hartevelt’s family.
