... Seems like someone there made Yakuza angry.

So, I assume it was the body of a human and not a dog or a cat or, a manikin. Was it male or female? Why bother with a two line snippet of news with no details?

They will either blame Yakuza or Brazilians and move along.

I too thought Yakuza. They took the head and limbs so the body could not be identified. Sadly, we will never know who this person was.

I feel sorry for the passerby, but sorrier for the victim even without knowing what the victim did to cause the killer to do this.

Yakuza

Prejudice much. Why do people assume it's a Yakuza right away.

Agreed. Probably an agricultural machinery accident. Happens more often than you think.

I think it's some nutcase, not Yakuza.

hakoerika - not been here very long, huh.

I hope whoever did this is caught. Terrible way to go out, killed and limbs/head gone.

Nasty business....

The thing is, if you’re going to separate the head and limbs from the torso (presumably to make identification near impossible), why not go the whole hog and feed the corpse to the pigs?

Torso in Shiga ditch

who died a few days to several weeks ago, the police said

It has to be a few days old or rotten to the bone in this heat .... there again, it could have been in a chest freezer, okay (clicks to next piece of news)

It's unlikely to be yakuza related. Those bodies are never recovered.

The image of a safe Japan is being eroded by these grisly killings....

@Darknuts, have you never heard of DNA?

I see the usual comments about how unsafe Japan is becoming, I think I you add up all of the murders, killing, etc over a month, in comparison with the USA that probably is about one nights total.

It sounds like yakusa. Still, DNA can tell who the victim is.
