11 Comments

Police in Naha, Okinawa Prefecture, have arrested a 34-year-old woman and her 34-year-old husband on suspicion of killing the wife’s 58-year-old mother and trying to make it look like she committed suicide.

According to police, Mika Kyoda, who is unemployed, and her husband Moriya, of no fixed occupation, killed Mika’s mother, Miyako Nagahama, who owned and operated an oden restaurant, on the night of Aug 9, NHK reported. Police said the couple are accused of strangling Nagahama, then taking her up to the second floor of the building in which her restaurant is located, and hanging her with a cord from a staircase.

Police said Kyoda and her husband conspired to make it look like Nagahama had hanged herself. However, investigators said that street surveillance camera footage showed Kyoda and her husband going into the building around the restaurant’s closing time, and leaving later by themselves.

Why did Mika Kyoda and her husband Moriya strangle Nagahama her mother? How did they carry her mother's body to the second floor and attach a rope around her mother's neck ? And let her mother"s body hang from the stairwell? Was there a video made of their crime? What is an oden restaurant?

@Stephen Chin Where's your logic?

Why did Mika Kyoda and her husband Moriya strangle Nagahama her mother? GREED

How did they carry her mother's body to the second floor and attach a rope around her mother's neck? You answer those question yourself when you asked how did they carry her body up to the second floor and attach a rope around her mothers neck. Duh you wrote "they attached the rope around the mothers neck"! And let her mother"s body hang from the stairwell?

Was there a video made of their crime? Investigators said that street surveillance camera footage showed Kyoda and her husband going into the building around the restaurant’s closing time, and leaving later by themselves.

What is an oden restaurant? A restaurant!!!!! Do you need to know the type?

You seem to expect an investigation to have happened and the details of said investigation to already be released. Bit unreasonable of an expectation, innit?

What is an oden restaurant?

Oden: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oden

Do you need to know the type?

Oden. Dude is too lazy to google it. It's not really a "restaurant" though, more like a shop, with karaoke too. It's in a popular drinking district in Naha, and was quite popular. Shame to see this happen.

How could people live with themselves knowing that they ended their elderly parents life in such a guresome way? Let alone be coached into doing something like this by someone else?
