U.S. Navy sailor, Japanese woman found dead in Okinawa

U.S. Navy sailor, Japanese woman found dead in Okinawa”

A USA serviceman and a Japanese woman were found dead at an apartment in Okinawa on Saturday, police said, with the man reportedly suspected of killing the woman before taking his own life.

A minor was found unharmed in the apartment and is being taken care of by authorities, Okinawa police said.

The sailor, 31, whose identity has not been released, was attached to the III Marine Division, according to the III Marine Expeditionary Force.

"We are aware of an incident resulting in the death of an apparent US Navy sailor with III Marine Division and a resident of Okinawa", the spokesman, First Lt. David Mancilla said.

The 32-year-old soldier and the 44-year-old woman were found bleeding at the apartment on the southern Japanese island, a police spokesman said.

The incident was discussed by Japan's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Takeo Akiba and US Ambassador William Hagerty during a phone call, the Japanese foreign ministry said as cited by Associated Press.

William Hagerty, the USA ambassador to Japan, promised full cooperation with the investigation, according to a statement.

Many Okinawans oppose the presence of U.S. troops on the small Pacific island due to associated crimes, noise, and environmental damage.

A plan to relocate a Marine Corps air station called Futenma to a less populated part of Okinawa has also been contentious, AP said, and Denny Tamaki, Okinawa's governor, is pushing to have the base moved off the island altogether.
