Japanese police question USA tourist over severed head

  • An American male has been accused of confining a woman at a residence in Osaka’s Higashinari Ward

The woman's mother contacted the police after she said she could not reach her daughter.

The police found the severed parts, including a torso, two arms and two legs, in three locations in northern Osaka Prefecture and Kyoto, on Sunday evening.

Security footage reportedly captured the pair meeting at a train station in Osaka around midnight and then entering the apartment building together.

Two days later, police found a severed head in a suitcase in another room that Bayraktar had rented in Osaka's Nishinari Ward.

The arms were found laying side-by-side under a light covering of soil about 1,800 feet from where the torso was buried in the mountains of Shimamoto, a town in the Osaka Prefecture, according to the newspaper.

Police found Bayraktar, who was staying in the Higashinari condo unit, in Nara and attested him on suspicion of confining the woman.

The American was arrested on February 22 for "confining" a missing 27-year-old woman, from Sanda in the Hyogo Prefecture of Japan, who had been missing since February 16, in the apartment he was staying in. None of the woman's belongings have been found.

The Washington Post said the woman had told friends she was "going to see an American for a date" and told Instagram followers in a February 15 posting she was off to "meet Jay".

The tourist was identified as 26-year-old Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar by The Asahi Shimbun and other Japanese media outlets.

Bayraktar, by contrast, was filmed leaving and returning to the building several times - on at least one occasion, he carried a travel bag.

Authorities made a grisly and horrific discovery: A severed head allegedly inside the man's luggage.

Before she went missing, the woman had posted on Instagram that she was going to "meet Jay", an apparent reference to the American.

Police refused to confirm he had been arrested.

Sources told the Japan Times that other women had been seen with Bayraktar at the same apartment but were all confirmed alive and safe.
