News Co-Workers: Suspect Ichihashi Likes Ayu, Bleach, One Piece
posted on 2009-11-12 00:20 EST
Former co-workers described suspect Tatsuya Ichihashi as a fan of the singer Ayumi Hamasaki and Weekly Shonen Jump manga titles Bleach and One Piece after his Tuesday arrest for the alleged 2007 murder of British teacher Lindsay Hawker. Ichihashi has been on the run since he reportedly abandoned the body of Hawker in his apartment, and authorities said that he underwent several cosmetic surgeries. A construction company said that Ichihashi was an employee under an assumed name from August 19 to October 11. The police had circulated a photo-manipulated image of what Ishihashi might look like after cosmetic surgery, and a tip from the company led to Ishihashi's arrest.
The British media such as The London Paper had been emphasizing Ichihashi's reported interest in "hentai manga" in the 2007 coverage of the case.
