Confusing headline. How about "Man finds ex wife murdered in Ibaraki"? Think he is involved?

If the police do not find some strange prints or DNA or something soon, the ex-husband is going to have a confession coerced out of him whether he did it or not.

this is a fabricated story, almost certainly done by the dastardly north koreans to undermine the safety of japan.

Very ambiguous headline. Whatever happened to clarity in writing? No copy editors at JT?

Even with evidence leading away from the ex the police have him in custody and will coerce a confession anyway. That's there specialty.

Hmm,.. is it possible he killed her out of anger/jealousy, or maybe something to do with the place she owned. it sounds too suspcious...
