Renee Hartevelt is shot dead, cut to pieces and partly eaten by murderer, cannibal and writer Issei Sagawa aka The Loving Cannibal at the age of 26 in 10 Rue Erlanger, XVIe, Paris, Île-de-France, France.

Sagawa had sex with Hartevelt's corpse but was unable to bite into her skin, so he left the apartment and purchased a butcher knife. Sagawa ate various parts of her body, eating most of her breasts and face, saving other parts in his refrigerator. He also took photographs of Hartevelt at each eating stage.
