Tatsuya Ichihashi arrested.

This news made my day and probably the day of every single expat living in Japan.

The prime suspect in the murder of Lindsay Hawker, Tatsuya Ichihashi, has been caught at a ferry terminal in Osaka Japan.

It was an insult to her, her family and the shame of Japan that this guy escaped barefoot in a foot chase in 2007 . His ludicrous "getaway" was made in front of a slew of police officers who were investigating the apartment where her body was found. The fact that he lost his backpack with all his money and clothes while escaping but was able to remain in hiding for 2 years is unbelievable.

I am so happy for her family that perhaps finally closure can come to them.
