An 88-year-old woman whose body parts were found last week in a boating pond in Tokyo’s Meguro Ward may have been murdered in her apartment, according to investigators.

Investigators say a security camera at her apartment shows no signs of her leaving. They are checking the camera footage to see if any suspicious person entered or left the building where the victim, Tokiko Abe, lived alone about 600 meters away from the park.
