This week's big news

This week's big news in the foreign community: a disappearance turned into a grisly murder when Lucie Blackman's severed body and cement-entombed head were found on Friday.

Lucie was a young British woman working in a hostess bar in Roppongi. She disappeared in July last year after phoning a friend to say she was going to the seaside with a client from the bar.

The client is suspected to be a man named Obara who is currently being held on suspicion of drugging and raping a half dozen women, and killing one. Lucie's body was found 200 metres from one of Obara's seaside condominums. He was seen there, shortly after Lucie's disappearance, with some cememt and a muddy shovel.

Strong circumstantial evidence points to Obara, but he denies any involvement. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
