May Hitomi rest in peace.

I hear she was also a victim of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake/tsunami as well.

I pray for her soul.

Akamatsu moved to the city of Abadiania to seek treatment for her skin cancer after she survived a nuclear accident in Japan, Joy said.

What a tragedy.

Reality is here more disturbing and confusing than any bad movie plot. Skin cancer from radiation, going from Japan to a crazy sect in Brazil and then , as this isn’t still enough , being possibly raped and afterwards killed with own clothes by a crazy overdebted and drug addicted robbing youngster near a beautiful waterfall? Unbelievable. That’s much beyond of imagination or profiling standards in that case.

At least he's been apprehended and won't be able to commit other crimes to feed his addiction.

RIP Hitomi

The 18-year old young man will also experience many things during his stay in Brazilian prisons. Some may be very much like the last things Ms. Akamatsu experienced. I hope her family can recover her remains or ashes and bring them back to Japan for a peaceful closure to her tragic life.

If she had stayed in Japan, she would not have been killed. May her spirit rest in peace.
