Wow a case in which the police took threats seriously? I hope the woman can move on quickly from this kind of frightening ordeal.

Yes! Let's take these threats seriously. Let's not wait until it's too late.

Akita is supposedly the land of the Akita bejean. He should have just moved on instead of dwelling on this girl.

Why do you always use the term "company employee"? It's a very unusual term in newspapers, is it because all the articles are direct translated from somewhere?

Get on him before he becomes a stalker! His ex should change all her contact details and disappear for a while, perhaps.

@Magnus Roe, people in Japanese news articles are often introduced with their profession: shopkeeper, driver, sushi chef. Someone whose job is to sit in front of the computer, making spreadsheets, writing emails and occasional phone calls is a "company employee".

Get on him before he becomes a stalker!

Before he becomes a stalker? I think its a bit late for that. The police have to take this seriously and act on these threats. Remember the girl stabbed and killed in Ichikawa by a jilted lover? They need to make the penalties for this kind of behavior these losers will think twice about threatening emails.

Police must take action against stalker and protect the girl before too late. This man needs professional help and must refer to Psychiatrist ASAP.

I wonder if this idiot could remember what got him arrested? Let me see if the prosecutor can make him remember?

“I’ll kill you,” and “I’ll make you remember” <

I think she would not remember if he killed her. The man is confused about reality and death.

We are probably going to get another story in the near future about these 2.
