Police arrest Japanese man after body parts found in apartment

Police arrest Japanese man after body parts found in apartment”

Japan has the third-highest suicide rate of the world's richest countries, after South Korea and Hungary, and its government has prioritised suicide prevention, monitoring suicide-related message boards on the internet, among other measures.

Police declined to comment on media reports about how many bodies were found in the house.

With the police officially saying very little, it was left to the Japanese news media to report details leaked to members-only "press clubs" for crime reporters. Police are expected to charge Shiraishi with murder.

His small apartment at Zama, a residential suburb ordinary of the metropolis of Tokyo was transformed into a scene of horror: the nine dismembered bodies, skinned and reduced into approximately 240 pieces of bone, packed into coolers and boxes and covered cat litter to try to hide the smell of rotting.

The body parts, which include two severed heads, were found by police investigating a woman's disappearance just outside Tokyo. They said Shiraishi used similar tactics to kill seven other women, four of them teenagers.

Kyodo News reported that Shiraishi, who worked as a recruiter for an escort service based in the Tokyo red-light district of Kabukicho, had confessed to sexually assaulting some of the women before killing them. His first victim was another woman whom he got in touch with via Twitter, offering to assist her suicide wish, then killed her boyfriend to silence him, according to media reports, including NHK public television. The three went out for a drink. The woman posed as an unsuspecting girl and Shiraishi fell into the trap, inviting her to his home.

The missing 23-year-old woman, whose name the police did not give, is thought to be one of the victims. He revealed that he used to bait his victims through Twitter and call them to his flat where he would then indulge in his evil activities.

The woman's brother reported her disappearance to police the next day.

The woman was captured by a surveillance camera walking with the man in Zama near Sobudai-mae Station on the Odakyu Line, the police said.

In trying to identify the victims, police are believed to be working on matching their DNA with a database of the DNA of missing people that has been collected since April 2015 at the families' request.

Takahiro Shiraishi is believed to have opened the account in September with a profile saying he wanted "to spread my knowledge of hanging and be a help to those who are really in pain".

When they knocked on the door, he answered, and the police saw boxes inside.
