New Yorker arrested in Japan over severed head in suitcase

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

"Although the body parts have yet to be positively identified, police suspect they are from the missing woman", says The Asahi Shimbun. There were no traces of wounds besides the cuts made to sever the body parts.

Accounts from major newspapers such as the Japan Times and The Asahi Shimbun said surveillance video from February 16 shows the woman entering an apartment building in Osaka Prefecture but not leaving. Hyogo Prefectural Police suspect he may have discarded the bag out of fear of it being found.

According to the announcement, a naked torso and two arms were found on a mountain behind residential areas in Shimamoto, Osaka Prefecture, and the legs were found in a wooded area in Yamashina Ward, Kyoto.

Nippon TV reported that the man's parents denied allegations, and said Bayraktar had always dreamed about marrying a Japanese woman.

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. None of the woman's belongings have been found.

The woman's head was found Saturday in a suitcase at a short-term lodging facility, or minpaku, in the Nishinari ward of the city of Osaka, investigators told the local news media.

Even with that, the talent gap between them and Germany's Bayern is expected to prove to be too much for the Turkish team. Bayern turned the screw at the start of the second half as Coman stepped onto Lewandowski's pull back and made it 2-0.

The 27-year-old woman was apparently one of several he had met through social networking services (SNS) and brought to the room, police said.

Surveillance camera footage showed her entering the building with him but never leaving, local media said.

The woman left work February 15 and traveled to Osaka; she told a friend she was meeting an American she had met online, and the Washington Post reports she posted to Instagram that she was off to meet "Jay".

On Monday reporters from a flurry of news stations from around the world were on the block of Mastic Beach in Long Island where Bayraktar lived. She was reported missing when she was unable to be contacted or located after her mobile phone died.

Police refused to confirm he had been arrested.

He had taken several other women to the same condominium, but the police have already confirmed the safety of all of them.
