Will be interesting to see how the excuse "I was afraid what would happen if I did not do it" flies. Hirayama used the same already. They certainly found out what happens if they did do it.

This time the police have managed to catch the footsoldiers, the officers and the kuromaku mastermind general.

Assuming there was no one higher up, it will be interesting to see how the justice system weighs out the different punishments.

Unless I missed it, still no motive for the motive of this horrendous crime?

Seriously? Inheriting 14 restaurants instead of "managing" one on a salary (and being regularly scolded by the mother of the wife) is not a motive?

What is wrong with people these days? Kang is about as stupid as they get. If some one was to ask me to kill some one for them and get rid of the bodies I would definitely go straight to the authorities, especially knowing either way I am damn if I do, and damn if I don't. I rather go with the don't do it, because at least I am not locked up in prison still with my freedom. Perhaps I would have to look over my shoulder for not carrying out the order, but on the other hand in prison you still have to look over your shoulder. The part I don't understand is Kang said "I was afraid of what might happen to me if I didn't do it." I guess in this case he didn't think he was going to get caught, because he didn't think about being AFRAID of the consequences from his actions.

Kang has told investigators he was asked to kill the couple and transport their bodies, and was quoted by them as saying, "I was afraid of what might happen to me if I didn't do it."
