Tokyo, Sep 10 (AFP) Japan's "Twitter killer", suspected of murdering and chopping up people he lured on social media, and storing their body parts in coolboxes, was charged Monday with nine counts of murder.
On the morning of Halloween last year, police uncovered a grisly house of horrors behind Shiraishi's front door: nine dismembered bodies with as many as 240 bone parts stashed in coolers and tool boxes, sprinkled with cat litter in a bid to hide the evidence.
Prosecutors pressed charges after five months of psychiatric examination showed Shiraishi could be held criminally responsible, according to local news agency Jiji Press.(AFP) AMS
