Severed arms, legs and a torso were found in mountainous areas of Kyoto and Osaka on Monday two days after police discovered a human head during a search for a missing Japanese woman last seen with an American tourist.

The police found the body parts in the town of Shimamoto, Osaka Prefecture, and Kyoto’s Yamashina Ward based on information provided by the American man, Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, who was arrested Thursday in connection with the case.
