Issei Sagawa is the name of a person who earned fame through a brutal sin. It was during those days in 1981 when Sagawa was the student in Sorbonne, Paris but he had not any good feelings for himself especially about his own physique which he thought was ugly, weak and unattractive. There was a Dutch student in the class who was very health and beautiful and attractive and perhaps it was the reason that Sagawa started liking her but he never told her that he liked her and wanted to marry her instead he chose the other way and killed that innocent beautiful girl just because to grab her health and beauty.
There was a notion in his mind that he could also get these qualities if he eats the flesh of Renee Hartevelt. One day, he called her at home for dinner and after she came he shot at her neck from behind through a rifle. He, then, molested her dead body by rapping and after that started that evil scene which is even very difficult to think. He started eating her body parts, he first started from her hips and after that ate all her body parts in a period of two days. He, then, threw the remains of her body at a bench in park.
Later the French police caught him arrested and he was sent in jail in the murder case of the same student. He spent two years in prison but was later relieved after a judge found that actually he was insane, the judge sent him into a psychiatric hospital in Japan where doctors found that actually he was sane and sensible person. It was during her stay in the mental hospital when an author interviewed him and got him stared in his latest book named In the Fog through which he became famous.
