Chinese student murdered in Osaka


Police have arrested a Japanese man who they believe is responsible for the beating death of a Chinese student:

The suspect was identified as Takashi Osuga, 23, an unemployed resident of Amagasaki.

Police have learned that Shi Xiaoning, who was attending graduate school at Wakayama University, had been beaten in the head at a club in Chuo Ward, Osaka, about 10 days before he was found dead in his apartment March 19.

Investigators suspect Shi was assaulted by Osuga at the club and died of the injuries after returning to his apartment.

The police have obtained testimony from employees at the club that Shi was hit in the head from behind with an empty champagne bottle after having a quarrel with Osuga in the early hours of March 8. Shi was knocked unconscious but soon came to, and when an employee offered to call a taxi for him to get home, he declined and left the club, the police said.

Police were alerted by a professor at the university that Shi had failed to show up for an appointment. When officers visited the apartment, he was found dead on his futon.

Osuga told police that he attacked Shi because he was angry that the Chinese student had talked to his girlfriend.
