Dismembered Body in Kanagawa

File this one under "Cooking Papa", one of my favorite Japanese anime from the 1990s.

On October 25, 2011, Kanagawa-ken (Kanagawa Prefecture) police have arrested and charged a woman for butchering a man to pieces.

Shimura Kanji (surname first) was the 66-year-old boyfriend of the alleged killer, and who's dismembered body parts were found stuffed in paper bags and a carry-all bag around Hiratsuka-shi (City of Hiratsuka), Kanagawa-ken during the week of October 9, 2011.

Charged is Nakayama Hiroko, his 55-year-old girlfriend (we'll assume ex-girlfriend) and nursing home worker, who lived with him and allegedly cut him up between one and two months ago, according to police.

According to police reports, Shimura's head was found wrapped in a plastic bag (hopefully not a clear one) and a towel, and left close to a bus stop. He did not get aboard any buses - probably because he didn't have his wallet with him. (Sorry).

This torso was discovered at a nearby parking lot near the bus stop, while his legs were found at a shrine. Probably had his shoes removed, so that is at least not a breach of shrine etiquette.(Should I be making jokes at this man's expense? Someone has to. Hopefully he won't go all to pieces at me poking fun at his horrific death - which I'm sure it was).

Why didn't she just toss out the bags on garbage day? Lazy.

Police are currently questioning Nakayama about her motive.

Japan - It's a Wonderful Rife is pretty sure her motive was to kill him and then spread his remains around the city he so loved...

Anyhow... you'll notice on the link above to the Cooking Papa cartoon that the theme song is about 1/3 the length of the actual cartoon being offered. Yes, it's only a partial cartoon with about another 15 minutes of it lost on the Internet. Sorry. But I only understood about about 25% of any Japanese cartoon I ever saw.... and those were the ones in English!

Why Cooking Papa? What do you do with butchered meat parts? Cook'em. Man... I'm feeling sick today.
