Guilt leads to Urasoe City murder discovery

Date Posted: 2011-01-07

Two years after he killed one of his employees, Yukinori Maeda is under arrest, and is grilled by Yonabaru Police on details of his crime.

Police arrested Maeda, after Miki Maeda, his 42-year-old wife who lives in Chiba Prefecture, led the police to the buried remains in a forest on a mountain in Sashiki, Nanjo City, on Jan. 1.

According to the wife. Maeda had gotten angry at the employee, accusing him of being a poor worker and shouting "you have a bad work attitude." He then beat and kicked the IT employee to death.

"I helped to hid the employee's body, and I have a guilty conscience," the wife told police, adding "My husband attacked. I didn't hit him," referring to the victim. Miki said she and her husband Yukinori, who lives in Minatogawa district of Urasoe City, hid the body on a mountain about a year ago in Sashiki, Nanjo City.

Police say the victim, whose name they're withholding, was from Tokyo. The victim's family had requested Okinawa police conduct a search after he disappeared. Yonabaru Police say the victim worked at the IT Connection Company run by Maeda in Ginowan City. The victim lived in the building, which doubled as a house and office.

Yonabaru Police is working together with Chiba Prefectural Police and the Chiba Prefectural Police First Criminal Investigation Section to follow Miki Maeda' description of where to find the body buried.

The victim's body, now only a skeleton, was found January 1st, buried about one meter underground, and arrested Miki Maeda on the spot after the body was found. Yukinori Maeda was arrested a day later after he was found staying in a hotel in Naha.
