Body Parts of 9 People Found at Apartment near Tokyo (News)

Tokyo police found two severed heads inside an ice cooler inside a residence in Zama City on Monday

When they asked him if he knew where the missing woman was, Shiraishi pointed to one of eight coolers, saying "She is in here", NHK said, quoting investigative sources.

The man arrested following the discovery of nine dismembered bodies in his apartment told police he became acquainted with the victims through social media, Japanese media reported on Wednesday.

According to news reports, the police discovered body parts from eight women and one man in Shiraishi's apartment, along with a saw, ropes and an awl, apparently used to restrain and cut the bodies.

Security camera footage showed the victim and the suspect walking together at Hachioji Station and Sobudai-mae Station.

Shiraishi remains under arrest on suspicion of attempting to dispose of the bodies, a charge usually brought by the Japanese authorities while they gather sufficient evidence to lodge a murder charge. The brother later learned of the suicide site after logging in using her name and password, and found she had been in touch with the suspect.

Amit Shah accuses Congress of ignoring Sardar Patel's legacy
He flagged off the Run for Unity in Jammu and said that the run was for re-discovering Patels legacy to unite the country. After the oath taking ceremony, a "Run for Unity" was organised and commenced from the EPFO office campus.

According to police, the woman posted a message on Twitter saying that she was seeking partners with whom to commit suicide as a group. Police suspect that one of the bodies may belong to the missing 23-year-old woman.

After killing the victims at his apartment in Zama, a southwestern suburb of Tokyo, he reportedly hacked off the flesh from the bodies before throwing it out with his rubbish and sprinkling cat litter over it.

Neighbours told officers that they had noticed a sewage-like smell for at least two months, but that they had not reported it. He added: "It was something I never smelled before".

He added, however, that he hadn't heard any unusual noises or voices coming from the apartment.

In Japan, a low-crime country, it is the grimmest such case since a former employee of a centre for the disabled went on a knife rampage there, killing 19 people previous year. The man's murder trial has not started yet. In 2015, a man killed five people, including relatives and neighbors, in another knifing spree, according to the AP.
