RIP. Hope they can track his movements and find the murderer. If it was some months ago most CCD recordings will be gone.

Is it gang related? A follow up would be good.

1- $$, 2- Love affair, 3- Sever Anger or Hate, 4- Dishonor or Disrespect, or all of the above. It takes a very compelling reason for any one to act in this manner.

I stayed in a haunted apartment before in Japan, its dangerous; I got sick, and moved to another haunted place by mistake and got slightly injured-startled by a strange noise . Come to find out the fudosans have a list of what they call "stigmatized apartments" which they rent to jns at much reduced prices.

weird and dark, I really hope the culprit is caught soon. It is not good for the peace of mind to have some killer free around.

I’m fairly confident there were far more beheadings and slashing in ‘Jland’ hundreds of years ago. What was to blame then? Hanging scrolls and Noh?

Wondering what could had been the motive of carrying out such a heinous act?

This person must seriously sick and should be apprehended soonest possible.
