true-crime-101:

A corpse sitting up due to rigor mortis, which occurs two or three hours after a person or animal dies, the muscles start to stiffen and become rock-hard. This phenomenon progresses in a downward, head-to-toe direction. In 12 to 18 hours the body becomes stiff as a board. While in rigor mortis, you can only move the joints only by force, breaking them in the process.

Ted Bundy is ranked a 17 on Dr. Michael Stone’s "Scale of Evil" -

17: The Sexually Perverse

"Serial killers with some element of sexual perversion in their crimes. In males, rape is usually the primary motive and killing follows to hide the evidence. Torture is not a primary motive."

Bundy’s method of obtaining victims varied; sometimes he would burglarize their homes and bludgeon them in their sleep, sometimes he would use an elaborate ruse, and sometimes he merely relied on his looks alone. The latter method was successful for Bundy because of the fact that women considered him to be good-looking and charming. In fact, this characteristic even allowed him to successfully abduct women in broad daylight, even if they were aware that a serial killer was present in the area.

Issei Sagawa is a Japanese man who, while studying in Paris, murdered and cannibalized a woman named Renée Hartevelt. He invited her over for dinner, shot her, had sex with her corpse, and then carried out his plan to cannibalize her body. 

For the next two days, Sagawa ate parts of the body, starting with her butt and thighs. He then attempted to dump the mutilated corpse in a lake, but was seen and arrested by French police. Sagawa said he chose Hartevelt for her health and beauty, claiming that he wanted to “absorb her energy”. 

Found to be legally insane, Sagawa was committed to a mental hospital in France. He was later extradited to Japan, but due to complications with his record he was deemed sane and able to check himself out of the mental hospital. He was only in the hospital for a year.

Sagawa now lives in Tokyo and is a minor celebrity in Japan. In an interview with Vice magazine in 2009, he expressed suicidal thoughts and said that being forced to make a living while being known as a murderer and cannibal was a terrible punishment.

Dahmer elected to eat some bicep tissue because he was kind of a bicep man- that was his favorite thing to look at in a potential sexual partner. He thought that would be the part most worth incorporating to himself.

In 1983 a man was tested to see if he could sense god if all his senses were taken away. Every sense nerve in his brain was disconnected. He could not feel, hear, see or smell. He began reporting he could hear the voices of the dead and gave precise details that he could have not known. He then said he could see them and began clawing at his eyes, it turned to screaming and biting chunks of his flesh off. His last words were “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and died.

this is terrifying
