Osaka, Feb 26 (YPA) – Police in western Japan arrested an American tourist to find a severed head of Japanese woman inside his suitcases, according to the Japan Times news paper.
A surveillance video reportedly shows the victim walking with the tourists near Osaka’s Morinomiya subway station.
The friends of the victim also reported that she told them before she disappeared she would go to meet an American man whom she had met online.
The surveillance cameras also documented the man’s house when the woman entered the house several times before watching the man go out alone carrying a large bag that showed the girl’s head had been hidden. The rest of the body had not yet been found.
The 26-year-old suspect denied any link to the crime, although witnesses confirmed seeing him carrying a large bag outside the building where he was staying, suspected of having the rest of the body.
