"Abe Sada Incident" 
Sada Abe (1905-1970) is best remembered in Japan for erotically asphyxiating her lover, Kichizo Ishida, on May 18, 1936, and then cutting off his penis and testicles and carrying them around in her handbag.
After strangling Ishida to death in his sleep, she next severed his genitalia with the kitchen knife, wrapped them in a magazine cover, and kept them until her arrest three days later. With the blood, she wrote Sada, Kichi Futari-kir (“Sada, Kichi together”) on Ishida’s left thigh, and on a bed sheet. She then carved the character for her name into his left arm. When asked why she had severed Ishida’s genitalia, Abe replied, 

Because I couldn’t take his head or body with me. I wanted to take the part of him that brought back to me the most vivid memories.

On December 21, 1936, Abe was convicted of murder in the second degree and mutilation of a corpse. She was then sentenced to just six years in prison.
