The severed head of a missing woman has been found in a suitcase in Osaka, Japan, police said on Saturday, Feb. 24, according to Fox News.
Police investigating the disappearance of a woman from Hyogo found the head in a suitcase left behind at the Nishinari Ward of Osaka, Japan Times reported.
Police arrested a 26-year-old American several days before discovering the head. The man entered a building together with the victim on Feb. 16, according to security footage. The woman never left the building, according to Japan Times.
The woman said on Instagram that she was going to meet “Jay” shortly before the disappearance.
