In a case where the body of an 6-year-old woman living in Tokyo, who had been missing since June, was found in Yamanashi Prefecture, there was evidence that it was used for the woman's SNS account until last month, according to interviews with investigators.
The Metropolitan Police Department believes that a disguised operation to pretend to be alive was carried out, and the dating partner who was arrested in another case is also investigating the details of the situation, assuming that he knows some circumstances.
In this case, the body of Yurika Nomoto (6), an office worker in Edogawa Ward, Tokyo, who had been missing since June, was found in a forest in Kosuge Village, Yamanashi Prefecture, and the Metropolitan Police Department arrested Toshiya Hori (18), a company employee in Yachiyo City, Chiba Prefecture, on the 30th for abandoning the body in early June.
The suspect Hori said that he had carried something unknown in his car, so when he searched the area, he found a body in the stream.
According to those involved in the investigation, there was evidence that it was used for Nomoto's LINE and Instagram accounts until last month, and that he had responded to messages sent by relatives and acquaintances and changed his profile picture.
The Metropolitan Police Department believes that a disguised operation to pretend to be alive was carried out, and a man who was an acquaintance of the suspect and was a dating partner of Mr. Nomoto, who was arrested in another embezzlement case, also knows some circumstances and is investigating the detailed circumstances.
