A number of coolers were found in the house, each containing body parts, and led to the arrest of 27-year-old Takahiro Shiraishi on suspicion of abandoning a body. A Japanese man was arrested on Tuesday after the severed parts of nine bodies, some of them stored in picnic coolers, were found in his apartment, Japanese media said.
The man is now undergoing questioning on suspicion of abandoning a corpse. The police plan to carry out DNA tests in an effort to identify the deceased, the investigators added. The search for the missing woman began after her brother enter a Tokyo police station to report that he had not heard from her for several days on October 21.
Police conducted the search after security camera footage showed him walking with the woman, who has been missing from her Hachioji home since earlier this month, near JR Hachioji Station and near the Odakyu Line’s Sobudaimae Station near his home.
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. The woman posted on Twitter she was “looking for someone who will commit suicide with me”, investigative sources said.
The man added, however, that he hadn’t heard any unusual noise or voices coming from the apartment.
