A 17-year-old youth was found dead in a vacant lot in Hamamatsu City on Thursday, with injuries to his head that appear to have been caused by a hammer-like instrument found nearby. Police have received information that Daiki Yoshiwara,17, was part of a local motorbike gang, and are investigating if they are involved in his death.
Police said blood was found at the scene and there were marks in the ground that indicated Yoshiwara had been dragged several meters, likely in an attempt to hide the body in bushes.
They also told reporters that a friend of Yoshiwara said she was unable to contact him on his cell phone since Wednesday evening, but a man heard the phone ringing on Thursday morning, and picked it up and answered it. She went to collect the phone, and started looking for Yoshiwara. She found his body and called the police.© Wire reports
