A Chinese employee of a local auto parts company was found stabbed to death in the bathroom of a company dormitory in Nagoya’s Nakagawa Ward on Sunday morning, police said.

The police identified the victim as Ma Guoliang, 28, whose body was found by a fellow Chinese worker.

The fellow worker said Ma, a native of Hebei Province in northeastern China, returned home around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday from work at a factory in Nakamura Ward.

Ma came to Japan last August to work for the auto parts company, which has about 30 employees, the police said.
