9 Bodies,Two Severed Heads Found in Tokyo Flat

Japanese police have found nine bodies, including two with their heads severed and dumped in a cool box, in a flat in the Tokyo suburbs, media reported on Tuesday.

Police confirmed to AFP they had arrested 27-year-old Takahiro Shiraishi, who lives in the apartment in Zama, south of Tokyo.

According to public broadcaster NHK, Shiraishi told police: “I killed them and did some work on the bodies in order to hide the evidence.”

Jiji Press said Shiraishi had told police that he chopped up the bodies in a bathroom and a saw was found in his room.


The bodies were of eight women and one man, several media reported. A police spokesman could not immediately confirm these reports.

According to Jiji Press, police found the two heads inside a cool box at the entrance of the apartment before making the grisly discovery of the other bodies.

Police found the other bodies in a number of large boxes in the apartment, reports said.

Authorities had been investigating the disappearance of a 23-year-old woman and discovered a connection between her and Shiraishi.

This woman had earlier tweeted “I'm looking for someone to die with me”, according to the Sankei Shimbun daily.

Other media said Shiraishi and the woman had connected via a website featuring information about suicides.

Television pictures showed a heavy police presence blocking off a nondescript white-tiled terraced apartment.

CCTV captured Shiraishi and the 23-year-old woman walking together last Monday.

She had been missing since September 21 and her older brother called in her disappearance to police on Tuesday, the Asahi Shimbun reported.

Jeez, I truly do wonder what Japan could have done to have caught this guy sooner. Not to mention the seemingly high rates of suicide in Japan does sorely need to be addressed.

These are always entertaining to read.

He'll probably just off himself in prison...

Curious on his reasoning for keeping all those bodies though lol. That apartment must have been absurd.

Morbid sexual curiosity? Perhaps a prideful series of mementos? I cannot say, though Jeffrey Dahmer himself engaged in such a practice, and many male serial killers often kill due to some extremely abnormal sexual urges.

What's sad is that her brother will never know what might have changed if he had called in her disappearance just a little bit earlier.

I wonder if the killer ran something of a "business." Think about it; contacting suicidal people and offering to murder them. This guy may very well see himself as somebody who offers "salvation," or he found the "perfect" crowd to use to fulfill his bloodlust. Both?

I was thinking it may be something similar. He definitely kept those body parts for a reason other than an inability to dispose of them, I assume. Not too sure of the thought process. There are quite a number of similar serial killers who engage in salvation (Those who target prostitutes, though this is thought to be often mixed with sexual issues), and this reeks of being opportunistic. I cannot say for sure, due to my lack of knowledge on this person, and the general lack of empirical evidence and study.
