Product Information

On the afternoon of June 12, 1981, a Japanese man named Issei Sagawa walked into the woods in Bois de Boulogne, France, carrying two suitcases. The postgraduate student at the Sorbonne had shot and killed a female exchange student, a classmate of his, the day before. After eating portions of her body, he tried to dump the corpse in a remote lake. Witnesses saw him and he was soon arrested. According to reports, Issei uttered the following to the French police who raided his home: “I killed her to eat her flesh.”

French psychologists found Sagawa to have been legally insane at the time of the crime and, therefore, unfit to stand trial. He was subsequently exempted from prosecution. He returned to his homeland, where Japanese authorities tried to put him on trial for murder. French justice officials refused to hand over the necessary documents to carry on and he was again set free.

8" X 11" document featuring other noteworthy cannibals as well as himself - Sagawa has captioned (in Japanese) each photo in black pen. Writing is not a copy - this is the true and original document. Accompanied with the document is a 4" X 6" photograph of Sagawa holding the very piece. Watermarks appear on scans only and not the actual pieces.
