Hotel horror after staff find headless man's body stripped naked in room as doctor and daughter arrested in Japan | The Sun

POLICE have arrested a doctor and his daughter after the headless body of a naked man was found in a notorious Japan "love hotel".

Stunned staff at the Let’s Susukino Hotel in Sapporo discovered the decapitated corpse of Hitoshi Ura, 62.

A worker stumbled across the gruesome scene in the second floor room on July 2 after Ura did not check out by the afternoon.

His naked body was sprawled across the floor of the bathroom – but his head was nowhere to be found.

Ura's frantic wife had reported him missing on the same day.

Psychiatrist Osamu Tamura, 59, and his daughter Runa, 29, have now been arrested on suspicion of being involved in his murder, according to local news.

The father and daughter were reportedly detained on Monday in connection with the brutal beheading.

Cops are now working to establish the relationship between the pair and Ura, as well as a possible motive.

Police told Japanese newspaper The Mainichi that it is believed Runa was acquainted with the victim.

However, they have not yet revealed whether she or her dad have pleaded guilty to any of the allegations.

Investigators claim Ura and another individual checked into the hotel at around 10.50pm on July 1.

Although he never emerged, his companion is said to have departed the accommodation at 2am.

According to Japan Today, the suspect was seen leaving the hotel carrying a black suitcase on CCTV footage.

Police said the person accompanying Ura was small, sporting light-coloured women's clothing and a wide-brimmed hat.

But when they left the "love hotel", the person appeared to have ditched their get-up and were instead dressed in black.

Cops suspect that Osamu, employed at a hospital in Sapporo, dropped off and collected his daughter at the hotel, but say he did not enter the building.

An autopsy on Ura's mutilated body found his cause of death was haemorrhagic shock as a result of blood loss from stab wounds.

His head had been sawn off with a blade, then taken from the scene.
