CHIBA — Fugitive Tatsuya Ichihashi, wanted in connection with the murder of a British woman in 2007, apparently underwent a face-lift last month in Nagoya and may have had other other cosmetic surgeries performed to alter his looks, investigative sources said Wednesday, adding police plan to soon release postoperative photo images.

Ichihashi, 30, allegedly murdered Lindsay Ann Hawker, 22, who worked as an English-language teacher at a Nova language school, and left her naked corpse in a sand-filled bathtub on the balcony of his flat in Ichikawa, Chiba Prefecture.
