The parents of slain Chiba University student Yukari Ogino, 21, delivered a letter courtesy of a relative to the Matsudo police station last Friday, which spoke of their suffering, it was learned Monday.
Ogino was found naked inside her apartment last month, with several stab wounds to her chest and cuts to her neck, after friends went to check on her and noticed smoke coming from inside. The assailant remains at large, despite police making public an image of a man who was recorded using Ogino’s bank card to withdraw cash.
A relative dropped into the police station last Friday after leaving flowers in front of the apartment, and gave an officer an envelope addressed to those heading the investigation. The letter signed by Ogino’s parents asked why their daughter had to die, and said that time had stopped since the day she died. They also wrote that they kept asking themselves what they could do, other than wait for the assailant to be caught.© News reports
