  • An investigation continues into the disappearance of a Japanese woman after what investigators believe is her head was found in an apartment

Bayraktar also led police to a mountainous area of Shimamoto, Osaka Prefecture, and a forest in Kyoto's Yamashina Ward where the torso, legs and arms of a woman were uncovered on February 25.

"Although the body parts have yet to be positively identified, police suspect they are from the missing woman", says The Asahi Shimbun.

Bayraktar is now being held on suspicion of murdering the 27-year-old woman, who has not been identified, but has not yet been charged with a crime.

The man was caught on surveillance camera coming in and out of the building alone several times, carrying a large bag, local media reported.

Another CCTV recording shows her entering the building where Bayraktar had rented a unit on Feb 16; there is no footage of her leaving. Her family reported her missing on February 17.

The suspect, who arrived in Japan in January, was arrested Thursday on charges of confining the woman against her will. The unidentified woman was only seen entering the apartment and not leaving.

Before the discovery of the head, the suspect was being questioned on accusations he may have locked the woman in an apartment - again, accusations he denies.

He had taken several other women to the same condominium, but the police have already confirmed the safety of all of them.
