12 Comments

Police in Osaka said they are investigating the murder of a man whose body was found in a narrow space between two buildings.

According to police, the body of Masataka Seki, 48, was found lying on his side in a 70-cm-wide gap between the two buildings in Chuo Ward on Friday morning, Kyodo News reported. Police said an autopsy revealed that his skull had been crushed and that he had been dead since around May 8.

Police said Seki, who lived in Tennoji Ward, was a member of a yakuza group and believe that his murder was the result of a feud between two splinter groups.

With today’s first reporting @4:25pm, not clear if the victim’s skull was crushed somewhere else before and then his body stashed between the buildings or,

it appears that he “fell?

Japan’s ‘justice’ system is always ripe for speculation so, …

Given the specific statements about the victim’s ‘alleged’ affiliations,

the the case may be quickly shelved as “unresolved: assailant(s) unidentified

or,

‘someone‘ is given up/surrenders to quell the current feud between the splinter groups.

70cm gap that's about 27 inches, must have pushed and shoved to get him there

Yup, the Yakuza is alive and well in Japan.

Just look for the black busses at your local train station.

The Yakuza would appear to be the last overtly VISIBLE dregs of the Samurai mentality in Japanese culture, but which still persists latently in much of the 'leadership', that is, the blind drive to dominate and parasitize the less psychopathic around them. EVERY culture contains this disease as we see in the 'Mafia', 'Aryans', 'zionists', 'azovs', "Corporate', 'aristocracy', whatever their local appellation, they are the SAME personalities which have poisoned Human culture throughout recent (~70ky) Hominin natural history. They are the most visible and easily recognized genetic 'castes' (see: psychopaths) in the generational output of the Human genepool other than 'musicians' and 'mathematicians'. Finding their victims' remains is hardly surprising...

What has that ever to do with a gap between buildings and where’s the necessity of its intonation? The result , finding a dead body of a former yakuza member, would be exactly the same if the dead body would have found on top, in, besides any building or in a forest or rice field or at the sea, wherever.

Only if he was very fat. He was found lying on his side, lots of space, try it.

Thanks for that.

I live in Kobe and having a bar have had multiple conflicts with the cowards and they are scum and I’m a working class cockney but not scum.

sure some of the may know how to have a fight most of them are load out of shape bullies from disfunctional family’s with a big chip on their shoulder.

they are parasites feeding on a weak apathetic population and it sickens me.

I’ve had my run in’s with them and the slightest sign of confidence in one’s self makes them disappear like the cockroach they are. Pathetic- be gone!
