A true crime fanatic allegedly murdered and dismembered someone she met online to experience what it would feel like, police have said.
Jung Yoo-jung, 23, from Busan, South Korea, is said to have killed someone she had met on the internet.
Investigators claim she was obsessed with true crime telly shows and books and wanted to experience murder first-hand.

A police spokesperson said she confessed after her arrest in Busan on Wednesday (May 31).
The spokesperson said: "Jung was found to have premeditated the crime driven by a desire to kill someone after she became obsessed with murder from TV programs and books.
"Jung also said she feels sorry for what she did. We are conducting tests to see if she is a psychopath.
"Jung was a loner and a recluse who has been unemployed since graduating from high school five years ago."
Jung is said to have initially claimed she murdered the unnamed victim after an argument, before she later admitted that was a lie.

Investigators seized the suspect's phone where her internet search history included searching for how to hide a corpse. Jung had also borrowed crime books from a library prior to the killing.
Jung allegedly found the tragic victim on an app for private tutors looking to connect with parents.
The accused killer is said to have posed as a mother of a daughter looking to learn English. She then bought a school uniform online to pose as the schoolgirl before stabbing the victim to death at her home.
The police spokesperson added: "Jung is short, and with the uniform on, the victim probably mistook her for a middle-school student."

Devious Jung then cut up and dismembered the victim and placed some of her body parts in a suitcase, before she took a taxi and dumped it in the Nakdong River.
She wanted to "make it look like the victim had disappeared", police said.
Jung's plan was apparently uncovered when the taxi driver who took her to dispose of the body tipped off police.
