Let's review: Guy in Fla. chews a homeless man's face off. (BTW, it was recently reported that the attacker, 31-year-old Rudy Eugene, was on the pot, not bath salts). Then there was Alexander Kinyua, the college kid who reportedly dined on his roommate's heart and brains after he killed him. And don't forget Mao Sugiyama, the Japanese man who served his own pan seared genitalia at a dinner party.
In a recent Huffpo article, Karen Hylen, the primary addiction therapist at Summit Malibu Treatment Center in California said, "People who have engaged in this act report feelings of euphoria or get a 'high' by performing the action to completion," she told The Huffington Post. "These individuals have psychopathic tendencies and are generally not psychotic. They know exactly what they are doing." She also reports, that the behavior is addictive. Well, isn't that just epically unsettling - psychopaths, with no empathy, running around addicted to eating face?
Possibly more interesting, but equally disturbing, is a 2011 interview with cannibal Issei Sagawa, recently posted by Vice.com. The video is posted below, but beware, it contains incredibly graphic content. Kinda wish I hadn't seen some of those images.
In 1981, Sagawa famously murdered an innocent Dutch woman in Paris and, over the course of the next three days, proceeded to eat her flesh. He was incarcerated in Paris then quickly deported back to Japan. According to Vice.com, who posted this unsettling interview with Issei, "a bizarre and seemingly too convenient set of legal loopholes and psychiatric reports" led doctors in Japan to declare Issei "sane, but evil." Sagawa checked himself out of Tokyo's Matsuzawa Psychiatric hospital in 1986, and has been a free man ever since. '
"Sometimes I wonder why I did such a horrible thing," opens Sagawa in Interview With A Cannibal. "Maybe it's because I come from another planet."
Sagawa thinks he's an alien. What's everyone else's excuse? Why is this happening!? People are friends, not food.
