A deceased man police believed to be a potential suspect in a 1995 triple-murder at a suburban Tokyo supermarket due to a fingerprint found at the scene was elsewhere at the time of the crime, investigative sources said Thursday.

On Wednesday, sources said investigators had found that a partial fingerprint found on sticky tape left at the crime scene in Hachioji, Tokyo, in July 1995 was highly similar to that of the man who used to live nearby.
