The New York tourist arrested in Japan after a woman’s severed head was found in his suitcase has confessed to disposing of her corpse — and showed cops where the other body parts were buried across several cities, according to new reports.
“I abandoned the dead body of a woman who was with me,” Gotham resident Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, allegedly told police Sunday, according to the Asahi Shimbun.
Bayraktar was first taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of locking up a 27-year old woman after she was reported missing — then cops found a human head in a suitcase in a separate apartment he’d booked a few days later.
After confessing Sunday, he guided police to the mountains of Osaka to a woman’s torso and arms — buried under a light layer of dirt — and then to the woods in Kyoto, where her legs had been left about 16 feet apart, the paper reports.
There were no wounds on the various body parts, other than where they were severed, and the woman’s clothes and possessions remain missing, the Japan Times reports.
Bayraktar, who has been in the country since January, met up with the woman on Feb. 15 after exchanging messages with her through a social media site, police sources tell the Shimbun.
The pair were seen on security footage going into his Osaka vacation rental that night, but then her phone battery went dead and she became unreachable.
The footage then showed Bayraktar leaving the apartment multiple times carrying a large bag.
Police didn’t find any blood in the apartment — but someone had sprayed a large amount of air freshener in there, according to the Japan Times.
