How It Transpired?
Takahiro Shiraishi, the 29-year old defendant, told the Tokyo District Court that the allegations against him are “correct”. However, his defense team is speaking a completely different story.

If by any possibility, Shiraishi is convicted of murder then he will face the death penalty, which is carried out by hanging in Japan. He is also facing rape charges, according to the media reports. He has also been accused of dismembering his victim’s body in parts inside a card box. This is such an inhumane activity by this man. More than 600 people line up for 13 public gallery seats to observe Wednesday’s first hearing, NHK said. Japan has been reported as the highest suicide rate among the Group of Seven nations, with more than 20,000 people taking their lives annually.
Just when we think that 2020 can not be worse than this, stories like this leave the nation in shock! Shiraishi, who calls himself the ‘hanging pro’ on Twitter, reportedly contacted people through the Internet using suicide pact websites. His bio said: “I want to help people who are really in pain. Please DM me anytime”. Looks like absurdness is finally touching new heights!
