Japanese police question USA tourist over severed head

Police in Japan allegedly found the head of a missing woman in a suitcase

Police investigating the disappearance of a Hyogo woman Saturday found what appears to be her severed head in a suitcase left at a lodging facility in Osaka's Nishinari Ward.

Both the NY man and the woman were spotted together on security footage at the JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka around midnight on Friday, Feb. 16, just hours before she went missing.

Before going missing, she had told a friend she had planned to meet a man she had become acquainted with through a social networking app, media said.

Video footage taken by a surveillance camera at the first apartment showed the man and the woman entering the building together.

When contacted by Reuters, a Hyogo prefecture police official confirmed the location and times the torso, legs and arms were found but provided no further details on the case.

Police say he was seen carrying a large bag out of the building where he was staying.

Mack Beggs: Transgender Wrestler Booed After 2nd State Title Win
When he won the state title Saturday, the boos were overtaken by cheers, not that he lets the reception he receives affect him. However, it appears that Beggs would like to jump from one controversy into another - competing as a boy instead of as a girl.

The case - with a possible tie to Long Island - has captured national attention over the past few days in Japan, where a suspect identified by Japanese media as Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, was taken into custody February 22.

The woman, whose license was partially found in the American's rented apartment, was reported missing by her mother on February 17, sparking the police investigation.

In an interview with Nippon TV in NY, the suspect's parents told the network that their son loved Japan and wanted to marry a Japanese woman, and they said he would never commit a murder.

The man, who lives in NY, had arrived as a tourist in Osaka in January, the Asahi Shimbun daily reported. The footage never showed the woman leaving the place.

The head was allegedly found inside the man's vacation rental in Japan, according to The New York Post.

Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, was arrested on Thursday after a woman he was seen with vanished.
