They met via some portal on the dark web, which is a cyberspace not directly accessible by "normal" web browsers. A dark website is one that is not longer live, i.e. has gone "dark". At least make the effort to get the nomenclature correct.

Hahaha! And what if you found yourself... there? Do you think a leprechaun would pop out of your screen and jump at you?

Haha...maybe.

That...or a knock on the door by the keystones.

RIP for the victim of 29-year-old nurse...How brutal those criminals were to kill after abuse/rape the victim who was buried naked as I've heard on Japanese tv news. Authorities and computer experts please find ways how to delete those so-called "Yami saito" or "dark site" (internet message boards where people can solicit others to commit crimes) to completely ban not to be shown to anyone.

the criminals are stupid. Gyms have cameras and burying a body 10 meters from the road at 20cm may suggest a third person buried it alone.

hope the family is recovering with the arrest.

"Yami" sites do not necessarily refer to sites hidden away the "dark web", it can refer to any site promoting or supporting illegal activity.

There have been murders and other serious crimes committed by people who solicited accomplices online, but authorities have struggled to take countermeasures, particularly with the evolution of the dark web, which provides a space for untraceable online activities.

Many Japanese police are still learning how to update the Windows 95 PCs in their kobans.

Exactly this ^ You said it before I could.

That said, it would still be worth doing sometimes publicly if not just to scare people off.

Exactly...great idea.

That, would not surprise me one bit.

The police and government promise to monitor and shutdown these dark websites every time they are involved in a dark incident, but they obviously have done nothing about it.

I have no idea what these dark sites are.

"Dark Web" sites are parts of the Internet inaccessible through normal Google searches and links through normal pages and are only accessible through anonymizing tunnel apps like TOR. They are meant to be extremely difficult to find unless you know what you're looking for and have non-standard tools to get there.

but surely the police could monitor or set up sting sites to catch these types out?

They could and should set up stings on them. But the amount of resources required would be pretty large. Each sting would take multiple officers, prosecutors, judges etc. That said, it would still be worth doing sometimes publicly if not just to scare people off.

I have no idea what these dark sites are. Combined with the fact I'm a bit of a div on computers...but surely the police could monitor or set up sting sites to catch these types out?
