Police on Wednesday arrested a 20-year-old man for allegedly killing his friend and hiding the body in the victim's closet at his apartment in Tokyo's Adachi Ward. Police said that the suspect, identified as Masaki Suzuki, 20, has confessed to the charge.

According to police, Suzuki visited the home of the victim, 23-year-old Susumu Honda, at around 1 a.m. on Wednesday. The victim, a newspaper delivery man, had told his sister the previous night that Suzuki would be visiting him. Suzuki had stayed at Honda's apartment before, police said.

After Honda didn't show up for work, police were alerted and searched his apartment where they found his body in the closet. They then discovered Suzuki lying in a large cardboard box in the cupboard above the closet. According to police, Suzuki was found in possession of Honda's wallet and cell phone. Police say Suzuki confessed to the murder during questioning.

Interesting. The murder happens sometime after 1AM this morning, then when the victim doesn't show up for work a few hours later, his work immediately calls the police? Either information is being withheld, or do the police normally investigate every case where a worker is four or so hours late? Not only that, but they entered and searched the apartment with nobody apparently there. They had to have had some strong indication of foul play to take all those steps.

Can you imagine the look on the cops face who found this nut job hiding in a large cardboard box in the cupboard above the closet.

Did they call Honda's cell and hear the ringing?

Whole things sounds normal to me. How did he kill him? Did the body start to smell yet? Homeless people live in card board boxes so perhaps he was practicing for when he escaped the apartment.

..they found his body in the closet. They then discovered Suzuki lying in a large cardboard box in the cupboard above the closet.

Stuffing corpses in closets and hiding under cardboard boxes always seems to work for Solid Snake--wonder why it didn't in real life? Bet this guy is looking for the reset button now.

Most people would think of getting as far away from the crime scene as possible. I would love to hear his rationale for hanging around.
