Interview with a Cannibal



Issei Sagawa murdered an innocent woman and spent three days eating her flesh. Due to loopholes in the law, Issei is a free man to this day.

On the afternoon of June 13, 1981, a Japanese man named Issei Sagawa walked to the Bois de Boulogne, a park on the outskirts of Paris, carrying two suitcases. The contents of those suitcases, to the lament of a nearby jogger, was the dismembered body of a fellow student — a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt, whom Sagawa had shot three days prior and had spent the days since eating various parts of her body.

He was soon arrested. According to reports, Issei uttered, “I killed her to eat her flesh,” when they raided his home, whereupon they found bits of Renne still in his fridge.

Sagawa was declared insane and unfit for trial and was institutionalized in Paris. His incarceration was to be short, however, as the French public soon grew weary of their hard-earned francs going to support this evil woman-eater, and Issei was promptly deported. Herein followed a bizarre and seemingly too convenient set of legal loopholes and psychiatric reports that led doctors in Japan declaring him “sane, but evil.”

On August 12, 1986, Sagawa checked himself out of Tokyo’s Matsuzawa Psychiatric hospital, and has been a free man ever since.

  1. I wasn't seaching for this particular video but I'm glad I found it!

  2. Whaaaaaat? "omg no way did this guy just eat another person, bless him how sick and so far away from god, I hope he finds piece next time around.

  3. 19:17 exactly,why are they idolising him,why is he being offered jobs,asking him for autographs¿seriously? I can't seem to figure out how human mind works.

  4. geeezz like he was put on this earth to do nothing bad and hurt others. a parasite stealing money off his parents because he doesnt want to work a job. profiting off his murder to make money and feed his ego and narcissism. he will stay in his apartment expecting free living because he’s selfish and lazy to work. murdering a better human just to get himself off sexually. do the world a favor and just take yourself out man.

  5. delete my memory

  11. Das bizarre daran ist der Typ ist in Kobe geboren da wo es das beste und teuerste Fleisch der Welt gibt und der hat Kannibalische Neigungen…?? 🤔🤔

  12. Wouldn't it be better to keep this guy in the asylum. I mean the guy literally says his cannibalistic tendencies may return. Isn't that a pretty big red flag?

  13. I’ve always thought that the legal system in America has always been broken, but seeing that this man not man, monster has been able to live freely makes the US look pretty perfect.

  14. Is there a sign up sheet for anyone to help with his wishes at the end?

  15. unrelated but he has the same painting shane dawson was talking about in his video about the demon in his house. (shane is also a cannibal conspiracy??) im kidding but fr wtf. he should be sentenced to fucking death n they decide to make him famous
