In an update to a previous article, early Sunday Kazuhiro Kumagai was arrested in connection with the murder of Chisato Narahara, an AIDS researcher. Narahara was found dead by strangulation in a ditch last week.
The 67-year-old man and Narahara were supposedly acquaintances. Saturday Kumagai interviewed voluntarily with police and admitted to the allegations of abandoning a corpse. Early Sunday he was arrested under the same allegations.
The investigation is still on-going under suspicion of murder.
