Japanese schoolgirl admits to decapitating classmate
17:10, 29 July 2014, 576

AKIPRESS.COM - crime_scene2 A 16-year-old Japanese schoolgirl has confessed to decapitating a classmate, police said, as she reportedly told investigators she "wanted to dissect" someone.

The teenager, whose name was not released as she is a minor, was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of murdering her 15-year-old female classmate, after police discovered the dismembered body on a bed in the suspect's home.

The accused has admitted she strangled the victim before severing her head and left hand, "using tools... and something like a cord," a police investigator told AFP.

"The victim was found decapitated, with her left wrist chopped off," the investigator said, adding the murder likely took place on Saturday evening.

The two girls attended the same high school in Sasebo, a city in southwestern Japan, police said.
