Police have opened a murder probe following the discovery of a woman’s body at a dormitory in central Japan, investigators said Tuesday. The body of Kong Linghua, a 35-year-old Chinese national, was found by her female roommate around 8pm Monday at a dormitory for Chinese trainees in the city of Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture. A man found in the same room remained unconscious, the police said. The man in his 20s, who is also Chinese, was taken to a hospital. He is believed to have lived in a separate building of the dormitory, the police said. Chinese sisters found dead in suitcases were known in Yokohama’s red light district Kong, who came to Japan in around May last year to work for a papermaking company, sustained cuts to her neck, while the man suffered lacerations to his neck and stomach. The police also found a bloodstained knife in the room. There were no signs of a third person having entered the room from outside the dormitory, the police said, adding they are investigating the relationship between Kong and the man.
