A 30-year-old woman died after being found with multiple stab wounds inside a car in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture, on Sunday night.

According to police, a passerby saw the woman’s body sprawled in the driver's seat of the car near JR Takasaki Station at around 7:30 p.m. and called 110, Fuji TV reported. The woman, identified later as Kanako Osawa from Niigata City, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead about one hour later due to loss of blood from at least six knife wounds. No knife was found in the car.

Police said the car had been rented in Kawagoe, Saitama Prefecture, earlier in the day, and that a witness had seen a man in a suit and the woman having a heated argument in the car late on Sunday afternoon.

The car was parked under elevated tracks about 300 meters from the east exit of Takasaki Station.

This is an indicator that Jland is not as safe as we all thought it once was. Guns dont kill people and knifes dont kill people. Its the mentally ill individuals who think killing someone is killing people. Don't blame guns and knifes. Too many of these incidents happening constantly in Jland.

It is nothing of the sort, unless you claim that "we all" thought there is no crime in Japan at all. Which of course nobody ever said.

The noise of trains passing overhead might have drowned out any screams. But the area near such a major station will have plenty of cameras, and no doubt they are tracking down the renter of the car to have a word with him (and search his premises.)

@Sal Affist "no doubt they are tracking down the renter of the car to have a word with him (and search his premises.) What if the guy whom Kanoko rented the car? There's goes that thought of tracking down the killer and searching his premises the best hope is that their was camera in the area.

Multiple stabs, poor girl never had a chance to escape, she probably trusted her attacker, hope the police will track the killer.

Back to Guns Vs knifes, both will do ugly damage, guns make an unmistakable boom sound that could be very alarming and helpful, but with knifes no booms and no cartridge hard to notice or track, extremely dangerous.

On another website it appears they knew each other, figures when you think of how culturally close knit their society is.
