Teenage schoolgirls? Gruesome decapitation? It’s a Japanese horror movie come to life!
A 16-year-old Japanese girl was arrested on suspicion of murdering a classmate by hitting her repeatedly, strangling her, and then dismembering her body.
The teen reportedly confessed to killing and decapitating her fellow classmate and leaving the mangled body in a bed in her apartment where she lived alone. Apparently she didn’t pass Hiding Evidence 101. But she did pass Creepy Motives with flying colors. The teen reportedly told investigators she killed her classmate because she “wanted to dissect” someone.
“I wanted to kill someone. I bought tools by myself,” the girl was quoted telling the police.
The accused has admitted she strangled the victim before severing her head and left hand, “using tools … and something like a cord”, a police investigator said.
“The victim was found decapitated, with her left wrist chopped off,” the investigator added. Her belly was also cut open.
The two girls attended the same high school in Sasebo, a city that hasn’t seen a schoolgirl crime this violent since a primary school girl stabbed her classmate to death in 2004.
Violent crime is relatively rare in Japan, but when it rains, it pours.
