Cannibalism has been practiced by people since the Stone Age. After all, there was not much food, so Neanderthals ate themselves like that. Later this phenomenon began to be religious or sexual in nature. With the development of civilization cannibalism has practically disappeared, although in the history of time the facts of eating bodies or their parts by other people pop up.
Today, this phenomenon is associated either with maniacs, or with savages, who have remained at an embryonic cultural level. Cannibals, on the other hand, are despised by the whole civilized society, they are afraid of them, and on the basis of such stories it’s time to make horror films. We will tell below about the most famous eaters of human flesh.
Issei of Sagawa.
Today, this venerable Japanese is a restaurant critic, whose essays often appear in Tokyo newspapers and magazines. But the past of this man bears a terrible imprint of cannibalism. Sagawa studied at the Sorbonne, his marks were beautiful. Only the Japanese did not leave a strange craving for tall women. June 1, 1981 studied English literature Sagawa invited a fellow student, Dutch Renee Hartvelt. At home, a Japanese man killed a girl, and then ate it for the next two days. Sagawa expected to absorb the energy of a beautiful and healthy person. When trying to get rid of the mutilated body, the cannibal was seen. Five days later he was arrested by the French police. Medeksperty made a decision about the Japanese’s insanity and was extradited to his homeland. Just a year and a half in the mental hospital, the cannibal was released. Perhaps, his rich and influential father influenced this. Now Sagawa lives in Tokyo, being a local celebrity. He is often invited to talk shows and consultations. The cannibal himself claims that he is still visited by such wild fantasies, but he will never want to realize them. Armin Mives.
The childhood of this person is hard to call happy – at the age of 8 his parents were divorced, and the mother over-tended her son. After her death, Armin lived alone, engaged in system administration and met with men. In 2001, a 41-year-old man gave an ad on the Internet in which he was told about looking for a young guy between the ages of 18 and 25 who wanted to be eaten. Strangely enough, such a request received a positive response. The ad was answered by 43-year-old homosexual Bernd Brandes, also a system administrator. Lovers began to make a video of their meeting. After another sex, Maywez cut Brande’s genitals, which they then ate and ate. The victim was forced to take a large dose of pain medication along with alcohol. Then, Maywez killed his lover, laying his meat in the freezer. For several months, the Germans ate their former lover. When the cannibal was arrested in December 2002, he managed to eat about 20 kilograms of people. In particular, the ribs were toasted on a barbecue. The court first sentenced Mayves to 8.5 years of imprisonment, since the murder was deemed unintentional. But in May 2006 the case was reconsidered, the new sentence meant a life sentence. It is interesting that in prison Maives became a vegetarian and headed the branch of the Green Party.

At school the teenager showed a craving for dead animals, he begins to present himself as a participant in scenes of necrophilia and dismemberment of bodies. The first murder took place in 1978, when the maniac was only 18 years old. Over time, Dahmer developed a whole tactic of finding victims. These were usually sexual minorities, which the guy offered to continue dating outside the bar.Dahmer wanted his victims to become obedient zombies, for this purpose he made holes in his head with a drill and acid. Some unhappy people lived after that for up to two days. The maniac practiced necrophilia and ate the bodies of his victims. In 1988, his next victim, a 13-year-old Laotian boy, fled Dahmer. The police arrested a maniac, but the court sentenced him only to a year of correctional labor. Even being under investigation, the murderer continued to kill people. In the summer of 1991, Dahmer began to kill once a week. As a result, another of his lover was able to escape, and the apartment of a maniac raided by the police. In the cannibal fridge, three heads, heart and insides were found. In the toilet, Dahmer kept a pot with his hands and penis, body parts were everywhere. In total, the remains of 11 people were found in the apartment.

Suddenly, Albert found out that physical pain brings him pleasure. Staying in the shelter and the experience there left an indelible mark on the mind of Fish. At the age of 12, he entered into a homosexual relationship with the boy-postman. Since 1890, Fish lives in New York, where he is engaged in prostitution and rape of small boys. In 1898 a maniac married a person older than him for 9 years. The couple had six children. In 1903, for theft, Fish was sent to prison, where he regularly had sex with men. The first killings maniac began to commit to reaching 40 years of age. The victims were minors. A cannibal story was given with the girl Grace Budd. Fish entered her family, introducing herself as a farmer, and took the girl away for the birthday of her relative. No one else saw Grace. After 6 years, the family received an anonymous letter, which eventually led the police to Albert Fish. The text told how the cannibal formation took place, as well as the story of the death of a poor girl. The maniac told in detail how he ate his sacrifice. The police seized Fish. At the trial, he stated that he had had sexual relations with 400 children, although officially one hundred cases had been reported.

Nevertheless, on account of the most famous Russian maniac, sadist, ripper and cannibal 53 only proven murders. Most of his crimes Chikatilo committed in the forest belts, adjacent to the cities of Shakhty, Novocherkassk, Novoshakhtinsk. Navigating on business trips to Rostov-on-Don, to Leningrad, Moscow and Tashkent, Chikatilo killed people there too. Only in July-August 1984, 8 women and children became victims of it. Usually a maniac chose those who seemed to him offended by fate and unhappy. They were women alcoholics, and just mentally retarded. The preposition was quite simple: to share a drink. Children in the forest Chikatilo lured computers, VCRs, puppies and rare brands. After killing his victim, the maniac disfigured the body – he cut off or bit off tongues, genitals, nipples, noses, fingers. Cannibal opened the abdominal cavity, gnawed and ate internal organs. The worst thing is that many of the victims were still alive at the same time.Almost all the victims were ejected eyes, the maniac himself told that he was superstitiously afraid of the remnants of his image on their retinas. Most likely, Chikatilo was simply afraid of the sight of his victims. Cut off parts of the body maniac carried away with, eating afterwards. This was indicated by the fact that he took a saucepan with him on “trips” according to his wife’s words. In direct sexual contact with his victims Chikatilo entered infrequently, because he was impotent. His sexual satisfaction was achieved by murder. The capture of the maniac took a long time. Chikatilo himself even helped the militia as a volunteer. As a result, the murderer was still captured, he tried to portray a madman in court. In 1994, the maniac was executed.

The journey of the fugitives took five weeks, during this time two more weakened comrades were eaten. As a result, the former sailor and conductor Greenhill, his friend Travers and Pierce himself remained alive. It would seem that the fate of the Irishman is a foregone conclusion. However, Travers was bitten by a snake, gangrene started. Hungry fugitives ate this fellow. Since Pierce and Greenhill did not reach the populated areas, it was clear that one of them would be the victim of the other. The men did not sleep for eight days, fearing each other. As a result, Greenhill fell asleep, and Pierce immediately killed him with an ax. Having reached the inhabited lands, the cannibal lived on freedom only a few months. Judges did not believe the history of Pierce, believing that this way he shields his hiding comrades. In November 1823 the Irishman again fled, this time with one young companion who persuaded him to take him with him. When Pierce was caught a few days later, human flesh was found in his pockets, although there was enough other food. Cannibal said that he killed this fellow too, dismembering his body. For his crimes maniac was sentenced to death by hanging. His last words were that human meat is much more delicious than fish or pork.

Maniac was born in 1952. From his youth, he treated women like second-rate creatures. The journey through the country only strengthened the hatred of the weaker sex for the dissolved mores. As a result, it was these women that the maniac later killed. To his first murder Jumagaliyev approached very responsibly. It was a sectarian woman. The maniac cut her throat with a knife and began to drink her blood. The frozen hands of the murderer warmed up the body of the wife, then he divided the body and ate it at home. Jumagaliyev says that the man was tough, but then he used to eat such food. In 1979, the maniac killed 5 more people, each time the scenario with the dismemberment and eating of cadaveric meat was repeated.

Crew of the Medusa.
This case of cannibalism went down in history including painting. Theodore Gericault created the canvas “Raft of Medusa”, which captured scandalous events. On July 5, 1816, the frigate Medusa, bound for Senegal with the aim of establishing French rule, was wrecked. The death of the ship was accompanied by terrible scenes. Discipline initially on the ship was not, all this manifested itself at a critical moment. Part of the team led by the commander sailed on six boats, and 150 people settled on a raft created in a hurry. In the sea it turned out that he was so poorly made that he did not protect from the waves, besides there were no sails or oars. And most importantly – provisions in the form of biscuits was enough for just one day, several barrels of wine could not fix the situation. For 13 days the raft struggled with the waves. People began to quarrel and fight, embittered by misfortunes. Someone himself jumped into the sea from a raft, wishing to perish so than to die in stabbing and being eaten by comrades. On the fifth day, only thirty people remained on the raft, three immediately thrown overboard for attempted theft. The rest began to think about how to extend their existence. Twelve of them were declared too weak to live in torment further. They decided to throw them overboard to save the remaining provisions from human meat and accidentally jumped on the lot of fish.As a result, the vessel “Argus” picked up a raft, the presented picture shocked everyone – on the ropes dried pieces of human flesh, and the remaining people literally went crazy.
