Well this is just horrifying. Poor woman. If she's on a missing persons list maybe they can use DNA to identify her.

The murder rate may be dropping, but the methods of the murders are becoming more and more heinous...

Couldn't it be sharks that attacked her drowned body?

RIP...

Just a torso? What about the other parts? I do not think sharks would be selective.

taj, the answer is perhaps found in comics books and the imagination? Yes, it never ceases to amaze me the unfounded paranoid statements that gracet his board. It seems some people are incapable of embarrassment.

I hope justice will be found for this woman if it was not an accident.

Hakata is full of YAKUZA, so just imagine! Take your pick which yakuza group would do this to a woman? RIP floating dead women in Hakata Bay.
