Teen finally confesses strangling her mother

Date Posted: 2009-03-19

A 16-year-old girl who says she only did what her mother told her to has confessed to murder.

Police have the teenager in custody, charged with the January murder of her 47-year-old mother. The girl told police this week “Mother said to me ‘kill me, daughter’. That’s why I strangled her.” The murder took place in the family’s two-story home in Kitanakagusuku’s Shimabukuro area.

The woman and her daughter lived on the second floor of the residence, while her estranged husband resided on the ground floor. On January 12th, the girl’s father received an email from her saying I am at a relative’s house with mother” so the father didn’t worry. Two weeks later, after detecting strange odors coming from the upstairs, the man went upstairs and discovered the smell coming from a closet. Opening it, he discovered a body.

He called police, who found the body had been strangled by string wrapped around the neck. The man then called relatives and learned his wife and daughter had never been visiting. Police searched for the daughter, and found her February 19th in an Okinawa City hotel, living with a man. The man told police the girl had told him “my mother died in a car accident.” As the investigation continued, police returned to questioning the teenager.
