21-year-old man arrested over murder of 85-year-old woman in Miyagi


Police in Matsushima, Miyagi Prefecture, on Friday arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of killing an 85-year-old woman at her home last week.

According to police, Daiko Aizawa, a part-time bar worker, has admitted killing Kaneko Ono on July 15, Fuji TV reported. Ono, who lived alone, was found dead on July 16. An autopsy revealed she had been beaten about the head several times with a blunt object. Police found the body after being asked to check on her by a relative who had been unable to contact her.  

Police said Aizawa has so far given no motive for killing Ono, nor admitted if he knew her. They said Aizawa surfaced as a suspect after street surveillance camera footage showed him near Ono’s house on July 15.

Good job, Daiko.

You must feel like a big man.

Someone's Mother, someone's Grandmother, someone's lifelong friend. While living in peace among our own species is almost impossible, can't we even be allowed to become senescent and die in peace? Sometimes the outrage and pain of watching ourselves becomes almost impossible to bear. Do not wonder when it crosses the line for many, particularly the precocious young, and IS too much to bear...Requiescat in pace, precious おばあちゃん, your work is done and time to rest...ごめんなさい...

I hope there's a special place reserved in hell for those who kill people who are weaker than them. You won't get any respect from me.

Criminals like him should burn in hell. Nobody wants to die no matter what their age is.
