Police continued their search on Tuesday for the remaining body parts of University of Shimane student Miyako Hiraoka, 19, whose head was found last Friday and her torso and legs found in the mountainous area a few days later, police said.
Police scoured the area for Hiraoka’s arms and right foot as well as any evidence which might help police track down the person or persons responsible for her murder. Around 120 officers, some with police dogs, resumed their efforts Tuesday morning but had to call off their search at around 3.30 p.m. due to bad weather.
Police said they had received around 60 calls with potentially useful information to date, but that none of them had been able to provide a solid lead. One person has told police that they noticed a burgundy car repeatedly stop and then accelerate suddenly on Oct 29.
Police said the roughly 120 officers continued their search of the area on Wednesday, and that other officers will continue questioning friends and acquaintances of Hiraoka as well as residents in the area.© Wire reports
