Japanese man stored dismembered bodies at home after two-month killing spree

According to reports, police found parts of a dismembered body in a picnic cooler covered with cat litter inside the man's apartment.

They said the missing woman contacted Shiraishi via Twitter in late September, seeking a partner for a suicide pact and saying she was afraid to die alone.

In Japan's bloodiest crime for decades, Satoshi Uematsu faces charges of killing 19 people and attempting to kill or injure 24 others at a disability centre near Tokyo in July 2016. The police are expected to charge Shiraishi with murder.

Her brother contacted the police on October 24, saying she had been missing since October 21. Shiraishi's neighbors noticed "foul smells" near his apartment lately. "I did it as a means of destroying evidence".

An investigation was launched after the woman's older brother reported her missing to the Takao Police Station in western Tokyo on October 24, saying he had not been able to contact her since October 21.

Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department on Tuesday arrested the apartment's resident, Shiraishi Takahiro, 27, on suspicion of abandoning bodies sometime between August 22 and Monday.

Severed heads were found in coolers, according to the AP.

"In August, there was a smell, similar to that from sewage, coming from his residence", says a male company employee who lives in the same apartment building as Shiraishi. According to Kyodo, Shiraishi told the police that he had not discarded the bodies because he was afraid of being caught. A man who lured three people he found on a suicide message board in Osaka was convicted of killing them in 2005 and was given the death sentence. A saw was found in one of the rooms of the flat.
