Japan killing spree ‘lasted 2 months’
    2017-November-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A JAPANESE man arrested after police found nine dismembered corpses rotting in his house has confessed to killing all of his victims over a two-month spree after contacting them via Twitter, media reports said yesterday.

Authorities were quizzing 27-year-old Takahiro Shiraishi, who has reportedly confessed to hacking the flesh off the bodies and throwing it out with the trash, then sprinkling cat litter over the remains in an effort to cover up the evidence.

The grisly case has stunned Japan and pictures of the nondescript house in a quiet residential area were splashed across the country’s front pages.

“Killing room,” splashed the Nikkan Sports tabloid. “One murder a week,” wrote the Sports Nippon.

Shiraishi has told police he contacted his prey via Twitter and killed them “on the day he met” them, according to several media citing police sources.

He moved to the flat in Zama, a southwestern suburban of Tokyo, on Aug. 22 and contacted victims by tweeting that he would help their suicide plans, the Mainichi Shimbun daily reported.

Police were led to Shiraishi and his secret stash of bodies while investigating the disappearance of a 23-year-old woman.

This woman had earlier tweeted “I’m looking for someone to die with me,” local reports said. Authorities then discovered a link between her and Shiraishi. (SD-Agencies)
