I'd bet it's the "If I can't have you, nobody can" syndrome

And what are you going to do about it, "Mr. Yubaru"? Name and shame 18 years old murderer? What twisted aims would that serve? Yes the Japanese law system is mentally challenged, No you are not supposed to be inhumane towards inhumane.

Victims, no matter their age, do not get the same respect.

According to the sources, the boy, whose name is being withheld because he is a minor, is suspected of killing Mai Sato, 17, by assaulting her in her apartment or nearby, and setting fire to it sometime between around 8:30 p.m. on May 3 and 8:35 a.m. on May 4.

Setting fire to "it", which the apartment or body? And maybe that's the reason why the cops can't tell how she died from the autopsy report?

Put the dudes name out there, he is 18, he has the right to vote, he is an adult! I am tired of this game!

Obviously the reason is, as always, that he is mentally impaired individual of human origin and now everyone except him has to deal with it. His inability to provide a clear statement on the tragedy or, at least, lie coherently makes clear he is another insane teenager. Which will keep on happening UNTIL the morality rises...

We do not know the reaon for this, at least not from this article. And also why does the police not know the details of death after the autopsy? And assualting her inside her apartment or nearby... That threw me off at first.

I can't believe this kind of stuff, I really can't. What a despicable piece of garbage.

May she Rest In Peace.

I think it's traditional to charge him before convicting him.

Although, considering Japanese conviction rates, that may be a meaningless formality.

If found guilty, please charge him as an adult!
