Gruesome.

Very heavy Yakuza story.

Nice of one of the culprits to drop into the police station and give himself up.

But why?

6 ( +7 / -1 )

in possible collusion with others

he could admit to abandoning the corpses but rightly claim that he didn't kill them, and doesn't know who did...

Sounds like murder for not paying or enough protection money.

Boss said go confess…so I confess.

I find it very interesting that the murderers drove 2.5 hours into the deep woods to dump the bodies but the bodies were essentially discovered the next day.

Because the boss told him to.

The plume of smoke gave away the location. If he (they) would have just buried the bodies, they probably would never have been found.

Owner of chain restos in Ueno is synonymous to being in debt with yakuza.

Breaks my heart to hear stories like this, that poor man and his wife had to die this way by a maniac or maniacs. Their children if they had any or going through allot, my prayers to them and may they rest in peace!

BigP Why, because everyone knows this is a YAK job and the bodies identified as Ryutaro Takarajima, a operator of several restaurants in Ueno, Tokyo, and the other body believed to be his wife was murdered possible because of their failure to pay their protection monies. THE UNDERLING who turned himself in could very well not be the person who did it. Most often it is someone who olds the boss and is atoning to make amends so he steps forward to TAKE THE HEAT of the GANG!!

‘I find it very interesting that the murderers drove 2.5 hours into the deep woods to dump the bodies’

it was not ‘deep woods’ it was about 15mins from the IC and on the edge of a river where people walk daily, I walk my dog there daily. 20-30mins from the IC in the opposite direction they’d have been in the mountains with hardly anyone around. They’re either stupid, or wanted the bodies to be found…..or both.

Interesting. Do you have a rough map location for us to look around, would be helpful.

Was probably dark and as city folk they underestimated the amount of people that frequent the area.

It’s the river bank right next to the ‘Nasu-Kasumigajo Golf hotel resort’ in Iono. Countryside for sure but the mountains the other side of the IC is way quieter.

Thanks for the context. The news I saw made it seem like a really isolated spot.
