N was purportedly killed in a small clearing in a forest on the edge of the town. Ishikawa led into the forest, tied her to a tree, and despite having walked with her in broad daylight for 700 meters, blindfolded her. N was quiet and compliant the entire time. After threatening the girl and asking for her family’s address, Ishikawa supposedly untied her from the tree and dragged her a meter away, where he threw her on the ground to rape her. In the process, N sustained a large cut to her head and started screaming. Ishikawa grabbed her by the neck with his right hand and pressed down to stop the screaming. Before he realized it, the girl was dead.
