A woman was found stabbed to death in her apartment in Tokyo's Edogawa Ward, police said Tuesday.

According to police, the body of the 30-year-old woman was found late Monday night after a neighbor reported hearing the sounds of a man and woman fighting at around 10:15 p.m., Sankei Shimbun reported. Police arrived at the property to find the woman, who has been named as Hitsu Tanaka, lying face down on the floor after having sustained at least 10 stab wounds to her back. She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

I hope to hear an update on the capture murderer. There is apparantly enough foresic evidence to identify who did it.

Wondering how long it took the police to respond to the fight before the woman was stabbed.

I wonder how long it took the neighbours to call the police.

Stab wounds in the back, knife, and bloody footprints.... lets hope the J-constabulary does not classify this one as a suicide.

Her husband is a chef and was out of Japan, over in France while this horrible crime happened. The woman who was killed was staying with her younger sister and still this did not protect her, so sad! I do hope they find this terrible criminal ASAP since my in laws also live out there in Edogawa ku!

We do not know anything about this incident and then right away people judge the murderer as being something so horrible. We just don't understand what was going on. The hate and revenge can be brought up within anyone to make them stab someone given the right conditions. Everyone just does not know what they would do themselves in such situations until it is too late and they end up stabbing someone. Everyone likes to point the finger.

Yes, this seems like a horrible person though I am trying to keep an open mind and not be brain washed by media.

"We do not know anything about this incident and then right away people judge the murderer as being something so horrible." Well Baxter, we know she was stabbed at least ten times in the back...and that's about all I need to know. You think it may have been...justified? Like maybe she flipped a bugger on him or something? Just to beb safe, I am going to watch out for you, Baxter, because like you say, "...hate and revenge can be brought up within anyone to make them stab someone given the right conditions..." And you sound like a dangerous condition...

Ever notice that the murders always say "...transported to the hospital and pronounced dead"? Were they a.) dead already, b.) died at the hospital, or c.) died on the way to the hospital. I would bet my yen on "c" due to the lack of paramedics in the ambulances.

I'm pretty sure she was dead when they arrived. They print the official pronouncement of death at the hospital for official reasons.
