KOBE -- A man who was served an arrest warrant over the murder of a 6-year-old elementary school girl here has started to admit involvement in the case, his lawyer has disclosed.

The suspect, Yasuhiro Kimino, 47, had previously remained silent following his arrest on Sept. 24. Police are investigating how he came into contact with the victim, Mirei Ikuta, as well as the motive for the killing and how the girl was murdered.

Lawyer Masayuki Masuda said that Kimino began making admissions about the murder and abandonment of the girl's body to investigators from the Kobe District Public Prosecutors Office on Oct. 20.

After talking with Kimino, Masuda told reporters on Oct. 21 that he had not heard why Kimino admitted involvement, or heard about any motive or apology for the victim.

According to investigative sources, Kimino had told investigators who came to his home on Sept. 16, about one week before the girl's body was found, that he had learned of the girl's disappearance through a news report. When asked about the girl's name and age, he reportedly said, "I don't remember," and "I suppose she was an elementary school student."

On the night of Sept. 19, he reportedly visited the home of a friend and said, "Police asked me all sorts of things. It's become complicated." He also reportedly said, "I've got to die now."

The young girl who was murdered went missing on Sept. 11. Her body was found in a grassed area in Nagata Ward, Kobe, near Kimino's home, on Sept. 23.

When Kimino was taken in for voluntary questioning by police on Sept. 24, he reportedly denied involvement, saying, "I don't know anything." Following his arrest he said that he would remain silent. He had also apparently refrained from speaking to his lawyer.
