Indonesian police said Friday that the suspected killer of a 28-year-old Japanese woman found dead in her Jakarta apartment earlier this week may have targeted her for money and other reasons.

In a morning program of the Jakarta-based private television network tvOne, Audie Latuheru, detective unit chief at the South Jakarta Police Headquarters, said that before she was murdered, Yoshimi Nishimura had repeatedly complained to the management of Casa Grande Apartment, where she stayed, that she could not open her unit's door.

Indonesian police on Thursday arrested a security officer who worked at the apartment in Langkapura, in Sumatra's Lampung Province, while he was on the run after allegedly killing Nishimura. He reportedly confessed to murdering her to steal money.
