What's in your refrigerator?

This came across my desk the other day. I've had problems with my landlord, but it was never this bad.

SAPPORO (Kyodo) Police arrested the manager of a barbecue restaurant in Sapporo late Tuesday after the body of the woman who owned the land the eatery sits on was found in the restaurant's refrigerator, police said Wednesday.

The body of Hiroko Izawa, 73, who lived next to the restaurant in Sapporo's Chuo Ward, was found Tuesday after a police search. She had been missing for about a week.

The manager, Koji Sugimoto, 28, was arrested on suspicion of concealing the body, police said. They are investigating the case as a probable robbery-murder.

According to police, Sugimoto has told investigators that he stabbed Izawa on Jan. 9 inside the restaurant to take her money and valuables.

The refrigerator is on the ground floor, police said.

According to investigators, Izawa's corpse bore several stab wounds in the chest and abdomen, and bruises on the head. Police said they have found a knife and a blunt object believed to have been used in the assault.

They said they believe Sugimoto had argued with the woman over the way the restaurant's doors were locked.

Izawa's family filed a missing person's report with police Tuesday after she disappeared around Jan. 9.

Her home was locked and showed no signs of a break-in, according to police.

The restaurant was open for business until Monday, police said.
