Severed head found in Osaka suitcase thought to be that of missing Hyogo woman; American in custody

NY resident Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, was already in police custody on suspicion of "confining" a missing 27-year-old woman when police found the head, Japan's Asahi Shimbun reports.

Authorities received "a tip about Bayraktar confining the woman in the apartment".

Bayraktar is believed to have used dating apps to communicate with a number of women since his arrival in Japan in January. The Asahi Shimbun reports that another American traveler who booked lodging in the same building because of its low cost "expressed bafflement" upon learning of the severed head. "It became impossible to locate the woman as the battery on her mobile phone went dead afterward", reported Asahi.com.

The woman went missing after she left her workplace in Sanda on February 15.

Bayraktar, a USA national who entered Japan in late January, was the last person seen with the woman.

The American man denies all allegations of connections with the case.

He had taken several other women to the same condominium, but police have confirmed that none of them have been harmed.
