12 Comments

A 70-year-old female company executive was found dead Friday in her Kochi residence, her back bearing numerous stab wounds. Toshiko Yano was found shortly before 3 p.m. by her son, who told police his mother had collapsed due to stab wounds in a second-floor Japanese-style room at her residence in the town of Ataka.

Yano was rushed to a Kochi hospital, where she was pronounced dead an hour later. Police say 100 investigators have been assigned to the case. Yano’s husband operates various real estate and consumer loan businesses. His wife served as a loan company executive.

Thank you for getting this right, finally, JT. Usually the reporting is something Ionesconian, like "a headless body was found and rushed to the hospital, where it then died."

10 years ago I walked care free here and now I am either reading too much JT or its a look over your shoulder place now. I did read somewhere that the murder rate was three times less in 2007 than in the 60s, and now its simply in the mass media.

I think the son did it. He's probably a furita that wanted more money from Momsie for expensive hair gel and his Louis V toting girlfriend.

"Police say 100 investigators have been assigned to the case."

Boy it sure is wonderful that they are sending 100 cops to look for this guy. Gee, now that I think about it, is there a correlation between how many cops get assigned to a case and who the victim is? That wouldn't seem right, would it? Or this possibly a Yakuza cover up (c'mon,real estate loan business?)

usually only those with connections to the underworld operates loan business in Japan...and maybe the Yakuza ask for help from the police and of course the police has to respond as they are spineless against yakuza. Amazing, 100 investigators. How about sending one competent and intelligent investigator? Numbers don't count mate especially bungling officers
