A Japanese court has sentenced one person to death for killing nine people in a row on Twitter. Takahiro Shirasi was convicted in a shocking incident to the nation. After his arrest in 2016, many people called him a Twitter killer. This information has been known from the British media BBC report.
In 2016, a search of Takehiro Shirasi’s flat revealed multiple body parts. The 30-year-old Shiraishi confesses and accepts killing his victims. He communicates with almost all victims on social media platforms. Nearly all of them were women. After this serial massacre unfolded, a discussion started about how the discussion about suicide is happening online.
More than 400 people took out a rally against Takahiro Shirasi on Tuesday. However, the court had only 16 seats for the general public. Japan is one of the few countries in the developed world where capital punishment is still kept as the maximum punishment. Many citizens of the country still support capital punishment.
Takahirao Shirasi used Twitter to take the suicidal women into her home. He said he could help them die. In some cases he will die with them. Thus, in August and October 2016, eight women and one male between the ages of 15 and 26 were brought to their homes and strangled to death and their bodies dismembered.
The series of murders came to light when police discovered the remains of a Shirasi flat in Jama City near Tokyo during the Halloween celebrations this year. Japanese media called the house a haunted house. Nine heads, many hands and feet were found in the house.
