A 54-year-old man turned himself in to police in Bando City, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Wednesday, saying that he had killed an acquaintance. Police confirmed the man's story, finding the body of a man inside a house made from a steel cargo shipping container. The victim, who was found lying face down with head injuries, was identified as 58 year-old Hiro Matsumoto, who lived in the house.
Police said the suspect, unemployed local resident Akiyoshi Aoki, said he killed Matsumoto because he refused to lend him money. "I just snapped and killed him," Aoki was quoted as saying.© News reports
