1 Although Ichihashi is the prime suspect in Lindsay Hawker's murder, the official crime he is listed as being suspected of is "illegal disposal of a dead body," which is often the first charge in a murder case.
2 ibid. Please excuse the wordy translation.
3 Hawker's name is not mentioned, only that the victim was a "British Female Teacher". This is not unusual for a wanted poster.
