That is so wrong

You know who the prime suspect should be but maybe he has a legit alibi. We'll probably never find out. Horrible thing to do to anyone much less an almost 90-year-old woman.

You know who the prime suspect should be but maybe he has a legit alibi. 

Pray tell, just exactly what could possibly be the legit alibi for stabbing a elderly woman several times. I'd be very interested to read your legal explanation.

Also, no forced entry doesn't mean much in Japan. Especially in rural areas, homes are often left unlocked and visitors frequently walk right in to the genkan while shouting out, "Gomen nasai!"

Happens sometimes at my home in a very rural area here in Hiroshima, and usually is quickly followed by a scream and the sound of the visitor doing their best to escape when my 60lb Doberman enters the genkan to welcome them. The dog has never bit anyone, but the surprised reaction is priceless.

Maybe start with a legal explanation of what “alibi” means. You seem to be confused.

I'm not going to suggest there is only one answer that is "the" legitimate alibi, but off the top of my head, "working in an office 30km away at the time of the victim's death" is an alibi that could be legit if he has witnesses to confirm it.

Does that satisfy your curiosity, or would you like me to think of some more?

Let the speculation begin...
