Police extend claim period for rewards in 3 unsolved murder cases

3 Comments

The National Police Agency says that rewards for information leading to arrests in three high-profile murder cases will be extended by another year.

One of the cases is that of a 16-year-old schoolboy who was murdered on the street in Kobe in October 2010, for which the reward is 3 million yen. Another is the unsolved murder of a family of four in Setagaya, Tokyo, on Dec 30, 2000. A couple, their 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, were found murdered in their home. The reward in that case is 10 million yen-- the highest reward ever offered.

The third case is that of Manami Shimizu, 15, who was murdered in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, in 2008.

Not that I think it will do any good now but if they have blood evidence, why don't they get DNA profile.
