The Japanese news is all over this this morning. I'm surprised Japan Today has nothing on it, considering the guy is American. But maybe none of their news sources has reported on it yet, so they don't have anything for us.

The suspect is an event promoter putting on music events. He lives in Yokohama's Hodogaya ward, with his wife and kids.

From another source:

On Wednesday morning, the body was found wrapped in a brown plastic sheet and floating about 20 meters off the coast in Koajiro Bay. It was also attached to a concrete block that was used as a sinker with a yellow and black rope.

Police believe that the woman was thrown into the water while alive and drowned. According to Nippon News Network (July 30), the woman died the day before her body was discovered.

Police are trying to identify a woman whose body was found wrapped in a sheet and bound with rope in Koajiro Bay in Miura City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

And some Japanese media say a large quantity of water was found in the woman's lungs. In other words, she was presumably thrown into the water alive and drowned. Um. Just the thought of it makes me shiver.

Cement blocks must have fallen off. Seems like a mafia hit to me.

Probably a crime by her boyfriend.
