Using DNA testing, police have identified the torso of a woman discovered in Hakata Bay as that of 32-year-old Reiko Moroga of Fukuoka City. Autopsy results showed Moroga had been beaten, and that a week to 10 days had passed since she died, police Wednesday.
Moroga had written on members-only Internet site Mixi late last year that she had gotten into a dispute with someone she had an automobile collision with, and was having problems. She lived alone on the second floor of an apartment building, and although she left work on the evening of March 5, no one had seen or heard from her since.
A search of Moroga's apartment revealed a window in the room had been broken from the inside, and the state of disarray indicated someone had been looking for something. Moroga's wallet and car were still at the apartment. Neighbors say that at about the same time Moroga had disappeared, an argument between a man and a woman could be heard, as well as the sound of breaking glass.
On Mixi, she had written about the trouble she was having with a man she had gotten into an accident with, and that at times she saw someone who looked like him loitering about in front of her apartment.© News reports
