  • Japanese police question US tourist over severed head

She was reported missing on by her relatives on February 17, Japanese daily Asahi reported. Local media said the woman was a 27-year-old office worker from Sanda City.

According to the sources, the missing woman left her office in Sanda on February 15 and told a friend she planned to meet an American she became acquainted with through an SNS site. No clothing and personal articles were found with the remains, police said.

Her family filed a missing persons report with the prefectural police, who discovered that the woman had entered a condo unit for minpaku private lodging services in Higashinari Ward, Osaka, together with a foreigner.

19-year-old boy martyred in unprovoked Indian firing along LoC
From 2014 to November 2017, 55 civilians and 44 BSF and Army personnel were killed due to CFVs on IB and LoC. But, unprovoked firing and shelling from Pakistani posts have become recurrent over the last few weeks.

Not other body parts were found in the residence.

Media reports said that last week police arrested Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, from NY, on suspicion of keeping the missing Japanese woman captive at his home in Osaka. The Asahi Shimbun reports that another American traveler who booked lodging in the same building because of its low cost "expressed bafflement" upon learning of the severed head.

Bayraktar, a U.S. national who entered Japan in late January, was the last person seen with the woman.

Video footage also showed the suspect repeatedly going in and out of the condominium building alone with a suitcase, Kyodo said.

The suspect, who arrived in Japan in January, was arrested Thursday on charges of confining the woman against her will. He has reportedly denied the allegations.

Police investigating the disappearance of a Hyogo Prefecture woman are searching for a large bag carried out of an apartment where an arrested American man allegedly held her captive, suspecting it may be connected to the case, investigative sources said. He is thought to have taken several other women into the same Higashinari apartment, although police have confirmed they are safe, according to the Mainichi newspaper.
