During this day a new hearing was held in France in the trial against the Chilean, Nicolás Zepeda, accused of committing the murder of the young Japanese woman, Narumi Kurosaki, in the city of Besançon. In the instance, the complainant indicated that the perpetrator used the victim’s social networks to hide the crime.
The investigator in charge, David Borne, showed at the hearing the messages that the victim allegedly wrote to his family.
“I take a train to go on a trip, so I can’t use Wifi” and “I’m coming to meet a new boyfriend, I’m leaving alone,” the messages read in Japanese.

The plaintiffs’ lawyers detailed that the messages show inconsistencies and accused Zepeda of writing them, who would have asked Japanese students for help. They also explained that the defendant asked the young women who helped him delete the messages 11 days after the victim’s disappearance.
In the same vein, the police checked the Facebook account of the young Japanese woman and obtained that “certainty that Narumi’s Facebook account was connected on December 10, 2016 by an IP address, which was used by the Google account of Nicolás Zepeda on December 11, while he was in Barcelona.”
B0rne added that “this makes it possible to determine that these two accounts were in the same place.”
The investigator of the case said that the train ticket was purchased with Narumi’s documents on December 6 and that it was from Besançon to Lyon in France. When tracking the purchase, they discovered that the IP address came from a shopping mall and Zepeda was in that place.
They also discovered that the email was synchronized in Santiago, Chile, and their last connection was on December 12 from the victim’s cell phone.
Police said that until December 3, Narumi’s email messages are marked as read, but “since December 4 they are all marked as unread. Except for two: the purchase of the ticket to Lyon at the Toison d’Or in Dijon and the purchase of VPN.”
Another detail that caught the attention of the investigator of the case, is that within the Google search a car wash was found, to which Borne clarified that “Narumi does not have a car or license.”
