A 59-year-old man has been charged with murder, robbery, and concealment of the body of a Vietnamese woman in an apartment in Osaka’s Yodogawa Ward, according to Japanese media.

The Japanese press reported that police had found the body of a woman in an apartment in Yodogawa Ward, Osaka Prefecture on Monday.

The victim’s identity was later confirmed as V.T.L.Q., a 31-year-old Vietnamese national, NHK public television reported.

The place where Q. was found dead was a flat on the second floor owned by a local man, who is in his 50s, while the first floor is a restaurant where she worked part-time.

A day after the discovery of Q.’s body, based on the results of an autopsy, Japanese police announced that the cause of her death was strangulation at around 9:00 pm on Sunday (Japan time).

Following that, police affirmed on Wednesday that Toshiie Yamaguchi, a 59-year-old local office worker, was the suspect of the case, according to Nippon TV.

Yamaguchi was charged with murder, robbery, and concealment of Q.’s body.

Police officers speculated that Yamaguchi met Q. to borrow some money but the Vietnamese woman refused to lend it to him. 

He then strangled the victim and stole money from her, using a bag and tape to hide her body.

Yamaguchi later confessed to attacking and robbing the victim. 

The details of the case are being further clarified by local authorities.
