New Yorker arrested in Japan over severed head in suitcase

Meanwhile, on the northern island of Hokkaido, police arrested a third man in connection with another missing woman whose decapitated head was discovered at the weekend, Kyodo said. Hyogo prefectural police said investigators found a torso, arms and legs in three locations in parts of Kyoto and Osaka on Sunday. On Saturday, officers found what is believed to be the head of the woman inside a suitcase in a residence in Osaka's Nishinari Ward.

Sources told the Japan Times that the room was full of air fresheners but had no traces of blood.

On Feb. 24, law enforcement reportedly found the unidentified missing woman's severed head in a suitcase in the Osaka apartment - reportedly one of multiple condos the American rented while visiting Japan.

The torso and two arms were uncovered in Shimamoto, and the legs were found in Yamashina. He has reportedly denied the allegations.

Security camera footage showed the woman and a man believed to be Mr Bayraktar meeting in Osaka around midnight on February 15 and entering a flat together. None of the woman's belongings have been found.

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

The pair held an infamously bad-tempered telephone call early on in Trump's presidency. Mr Trump, who wants to have trained armsmen in schools, echoed Mr Turnbull's remarks.

The woman, according to The Asahi Shimbun, told friends before she went missing that she was going to meet a man she met on a social networking website.

Video records from security cameras and other devices showed that Bayraktar went in and out of the Higashinari condominium several times carrying a large travel bag on February 18. Another CCTV recording shows her entering the building where Bayraktar had rented a unit on Feb 16; there is no footage of her leaving.

He traveled from his home in NY to Japan last month, where he claimed to have planned a sightseeing trip.

Investigative sources have confirmed that four or five other women arrived at the Higashinari residence while the suspect resided there, according to Fuji News Network (Feb. 25).

The police are set to serve a fresh arrest warrant on the man for the disposal and damaging of a body.
