A suspect who earlier this month is alleged to have murdered his live-in girlfriend and her son before killing himself was in financial trouble. On September 17, the body of 61-year-old company president Yoshio Nakazawa was found on a mountainside in mountain in Chino, Nagano Prefecture in what police are considering to be a suicide.
Four days earlier, investigators believe he killed Midori Sakaki, 38, and her 5-year-old son, Shunnosuke, inside the high-end apartment they shared in the Harajuku district of Tokyo's Shibuya Ward.
In the early morning hours of September 13, Nakazawa had phoned a relative. "I killed two people," he said. That relative in turn phoned police, who after arriving at Nakazawa's unit in the Bliss Beige apartment building discovered the two bodies and a note, which read, "I will follow them."
