Three more arrested over murder of 19-year old in Yamanashi


Three more people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 19-year-old male last month in Tsuru City, Yamanashi Prefecture. 

According to police, the suspects, Masahiro Amano, 28, Kenta Gonmori, 22,  and an 18-year-old female, who cannot be named because she is a minor, were charged with inflicting bodily injury resulting in the death of Ryusei Yamaguchi, Fuji TV reported. Two other 19-year-olds were arrested on June 24 when the assault took place at the dorm of the company for whom Yamaguchi worked. Yamaguchi died from head injuries five days later in hospital and the charge was changed to murder.

Yamaguchi and Amano were acquaintances and police suspect that a dispute concerning money may have sparked trouble between the two.

Whatever the case, unleashing their attacks on just one man is cruel and inhuman treatment. RIP to the victim.

Wish more people learned MA not for inflicting damage but it helps absorb damage.

Recall one time 2 guys attacked me with 2 baseball bats, 2 min later i still stood and asked 'done now'. Had bruises for days though on legs and arms.

Never fought back not me, online too never call people names.My views offend some as do many posts here offend me.

No worries.

Horrid Crime. Can't see the motivation even after fighting on 2 fronts, 40yrs of MA( 5 styles, 4 to Instructor).

Humans still puzzle me.

Poor boy, and his poor family, having to live with the knowledge that his last conscious minutes were terror-filled.

These are humans, make no mistake. Humans commit monstrosities all the damn time.

Lol of course they are, TheGodfather-san.

Well humans are animals .

All humans have had a history of murdering and killing. Somewhere along your family tree, there is a human who has killed another. Stop trying to be a goodie goodie and think more of how these murderers came to be. The environment shapes the culture that shapes individual lives (and yes this also includes murderers).
