Murder suspect apprehended

Date Posted: 1998-05-18

A reputed gang member, suspected of killing a person nine years ago was finally apprehended by police, Monday. According to the police, Kenichi Mishima, 57, a reputed member of a local crime organization avoided a prison sentence for nine years and was finally arrested in Osaka.

The killing took place in a remote Kita-Daito Island. A representative of the Okinawa Prefecture Police will travel to Osaka to formally request the extradiction of the suspect, who was apprehended Monday.

According to the police investigation, the crime took place in 1989 when five people from Osaka went to the Kita-Daito Island for a fishing trip. While fishing from the steep cliffs on the island shore, one of the men fell about nine meters down to his death. According to three witnesses the man fell down by accident.

However, the police suspected foul play and continued their investigation. According to people living on the island, the group used to come for a fishing trip about twice a year. They further stated that they had noticed that one of the men had been enraged because of the bad weather, and they had seen him beating the victim.

Investigators from Naha Police then went to Osaka trying to locate the suspect for further questioning, but he seemed to have vanished. Convinced that there had been a crime, they put Mishima on a wanted list, and he was finally caught nine years after the incident.
