  • American in Custody After Severed Head Is Found in Japan

She was reported missing on by her relatives on February 17, Japanese daily Asahi reported.

Hyogo prefectural police (R) are pictured at the scene as they investigate an apartment (L) where a decapitated head was found in Osaka on February 25, 2018. The Tokyo Reporter says no blood or other indications of a crime have been found at that apartment, with the Japan Times adding that a lot of air freshener had been used.

The woman met the suspect near JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka around midnight, and security camera footage showed them entering the Higashinari lodging together. Police found a torso and a pair of arms 600 metres apart in mountains south of Kyoto, and two legs hidden in woods on the western outskirts of Kyoto.

Reports indicate Bayraktar has refused to answer questions from investigators, but has denied the accusations against him. None of the woman's belongings have been found.

The woman posted on social media that she was planning to meet with a man called "Jay" shortly before she went missing. At the vacation home rental, authorities discovered the severed head of the woman, who has not yet been identified, inside of a suitcase.

Local media said the discoveries were based on information supplied by the suspect.

The U.S. national, who entered Japan in late January, was the last person seen with the 27-year-old woman from Sanda, Hyogo Prefecture.

Police searching for the woman found what they believe to be her head in a suitcase in the apartment.

He traveled from his home in NY to Japan last month, where he claimed to have planned a sightseeing trip. She was reported missing when she was unable to be contacted or located after her mobile phone died. He is thought to have taken several other women into the same Higashinari apartment, although police have confirmed they are safe, according to the Mainichi newspaper.

Police refused to confirm he had been arrested.
