The unfolding mystery has sent shockwaves through the community, as authorities race to uncover the truth behind this tragic incident.
The victim, a high school student believed to be 15 years old from Chiba Prefecture, remains unidentified as the Tochigi Prefectural Police continue their efforts to confirm her identity. The girl's lifeless body bore signs of physical trauma, with bruises visible on her neck and body, deepening the intrigue surrounding her untimely demise.
The chilling events transpired in the early hours of the 19th when the man, allegedly admitted to the crime, abandoned the girl's body inside a rental car parked on a roadside in Sakagami, Utsunomiya City, Tochigi Prefecture at around 3:15 AM.
