Japanese man arrested after parts of nine bodies found in home

Tokyo police have found nine bodies including two with their heads severed in a flat in the city suburbsMore

Japanese police have arrested a man shortly after they found nine bodies, including two with their heads severed and dumped in a cool box, in a flat in the Tokyo suburbs.

He may also have briefly kept some of his victims alive before murdering them.

The residence of Takahiro Shiraishi in the city of Zama, southwest of Tokyo, on Tuesday.

Police who knocked on an apartment door in Japan and inquired about a missing woman were told by the occupant "she is in here" as he pointed to a cooler box, sources said. Forensic tests are being conducted on the restraints. The suspect told police he dismembered the bodies in the bathroom after killing the persons. Police found the bodies of seven other women and one man in the apartment.

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

North Korea's nuke ambitions just a PIPE DREAM, US defence chief taunts
Both defence chiefs condemned the North's nuclear provocations in the wake of Kim's six missile tests in rapid succession. His administration has sought to increase pressure on Pyongyang through U.N.

Takahiro Shiraishi, 27, has reportedly admitted to police that he had killed nine people, apparently eight women and one man, since August 22, after making contact on Twitter and luring them to his home in Zama, Kanagawa prefecture, with offers to help them die.

They are working to identify the victims.

Police made the gruesome discovery this week while searching for a 23-year-old woman who had disappeared one week prior.

"It's true that I tried to hide the bodies of the people I killed to destroy evidence", Shiraishi was quoted as saying by the police. 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. Shiraishi's neighbors noticed "foul smells" near his apartment lately.

Shiraishi's case, involving social media suicide pacts, connections to Tokyo's notorious red-light district and neighbours who did not report a noxious smell coming from the suspect's apartment for months, has the hallmarks of a grotesque thriller novel or horror movie.
