Even if the man is telling the truth, I don't favor his chances with the police here. At the very least, the police will destroy his life before finally accepting a mountain of evidence that it wasn't him (if it wasn't). And part of that process will be forcing him to confess while they hold him for weeks and make him suffer sleep dep.

Look, I know we should give this guy the benefit of the doubt but come on! She comes over to see him for GW but he stayed over at another friend's house? The cops will interrogate the truth out of him. Wonder how many minutes it will take for him to crack?

nudge - a less crappy story, and I would probably agree with you... Admitting they fought, he left the house in a rage and stayed with a friend, we still need to know more about the nature of the wound that killed the woman. On the other hand, such a crappy story in itself can be the proof that he is actually telling the truth.

Let me see... does the J-police "suspect foul play", as they sometimes do? Article does not say.

Not buying it at all. Who lets an ex-girlfriend stay at their place while they stay at another friend's place? I think this is an attempted rape rape gone a rye.

Of course this wa murder. There's nothing here that says it isn't. Japanese society is in such a sad state these days.

Was there forced entry into the house? Couldn't this be a possible suicide? What caused the bleeding, a knife? not much to the story to be conclusive, but guess more information will come later....

So far my Golden Week is going off to a good start, but people getting killed on an over night bus?? This poor young lady visits boy friend to get stabbed to death?? Not my kind of idea of a happy Golden Week!! RIP young lady from Sendai.

Suicide? She showed up, he bugged off to a friend's and she kills herself? Wouldn't be the first time this has happened.

How much do you wanna bet that her current boyfriend followed her from Sendia and killed her when he found her cheating.

The press hardly every gets the details right. Don't be surpised if it all takes a left turn at Albequerque on the follow-up report.
