Regarding the brief May 25 article “Yamagata teen shot by crow hunter“: This (Kyodo) article made me laugh because it says the name of the victim was withheld, yet it identifies her as the “eldest daughter of Keishi Konno 47, a local farmer.”

Is it not reasonable to assume that everyone in the area who knows Konno also knows his eldest daughter and thus her name?
