Police officers on Sunday handed out leaflets to passersby and residents along a roadside in Togane, Chiba Prefecture, where a 5-year-old girl was found naked and dead on Sept 22. Police are trying to track the last 30 minutes of Yukimaro Narita, who left a hospital where her mother was working around 12 noon, and was not seen again until her body was found on the street about 300 meters from the hospital.
The leaflets show photos of Yukimaro and the clothes she was wearing when she was last seen. Her shoes and clothes were found near the roadside later.
The crime scene is located in front of a park in a residential area. The park was deserted for most of the weekend with many residents saying they didn't want to let their children play there until the killer is caught.© Japan Today
