  • An American male has been accused of confining a woman at a residence in Osaka’s Higashinari Ward

On Sunday he apparently lead the police to the victim's unclothed arms, legs and torso, all buried in separate locations in parts of Kyoto and Osaka.

Police in Japan began looking for the woman, who had reportedly met Bayraktar through social media, when she did not show up for work.

Police have formally arrested the 26-year-old and he has confessed to "abandoning the woman's body", according to national broadcaster NHK.

The woman was last seen walking with the suspect, who was arrested last week after she was reported missing by her family.

They later found what appeared to be the woman's head inside a suitcase at a flat Mr Bayraktar had booked in Osaka through a private holiday rental site, local media said.

Investigators told Kyodo news that security footage appeared to show Bayraktar and the missing woman walking toward the apartment on February 16, and an inside camera caught the two entering together.

After arriving in Japan in January, Bayraktar contacted various women through a "matchmaking" smartphone app and other means, according to the sources.

NY resident Yevgeniy Vasilievich Bayraktar, 26, was already in police custody on suspicion of "confining" a missing 27-year-old woman when police found the head, Japan's Asahi Shimbun reports.

Bayraktar was in Japan as a tourist, according to the newspaper. A camera inside also recorded the two entering together, but did not capture the woman leaving, the investigators said.

Bayraktar was arrested in Nara on February 22 on suspicion of confining the Sanda woman in the room. The footage does not show the woman ever leaving the premises.

Before the discovery of the head, the suspect was being questioned on accusations he may have locked the woman in an apartment - again, accusations he denies.

He had taken several other women to the same condominium, but police have confirmed that none of them have been harmed.
