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

A U.S. tourist in Japan murdered a girl he met on a dating app, chopped her up and scattered her body parts across the Japanese countryside, police have alleged. 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.

A surveillance video reportedly shows her walking with a man believed to be Bayraktar near Osaka's Morinomiya subway station. Traces of blood were found at the property, where a large amount of air freshener had also been used, Kyodo reported.

They later found what appeared to be the woman's head inside a suitcase at a flat Mr Bayraktar had booked in Osaka through a private holiday rental site, local media said.

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.

The man has reportedly denied all the allegations against him. However, the woman was not found inside.

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.

The woman left work February 15 and traveled to Osaka; she told a friend she was meeting an American she had met online, and the Washington Post reports she posted to Instagram that she was off to meet "Jay". "It became impossible to locate the woman as the battery on her mobile phone went dead afterward", reported Asahi.com.

The 27-year-old woman was apparently one of several he had met through social networking services (SNS) and brought to the room, police said. After he was interrogated, police say Bayraktar told them he buried the woman's body in three different areas in western Japan. A new warrant is to be served to the American man for disposing of and damaging a body.
