Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. -Three years after the murder of Japanese pan player Asami Nagakiya, the T&T Police Service’s Cold Case Unit has found new information which can help solve the case.
Head of the Unit ACP Anthony James confirmed the police had gotten information which “points in a certain direction” ahead of today’s third anniversary of the discovery of Nagakiya’s body.
“There may be some light at the end of this tunnel,” James added.
Nagakiya, 31, of Sapporo-shi, Hokkaido, had been coming to T&T since 2009 to play with steelbands.
In 2016, she had also played mas with Legacy’s Carnival band. Her body was found by a CEPEP worker on Ash Wednesday—February 9—at the base of a tree in the Queen’s Park Savannah. She was still clad in her Legend’s costume.
An autopsy revealed she had been strangled.
....Nagakiya’s colleagues at Silver Stars Steel Orchestra—the last steelband she had played with—say they still miss her, remember her and remain hopeful “always”.
They keep exploiting the death of this girl from DAY ONE!!!
Encouraging news by the police, awaiting someone to be held responsible.
There is always hope the person/s responsible will be found and brought to justice. God is great.
It has taken too Dam long, way too long.
