A missing Japanese pornstar was found dead earlier this month – reportedly naked and tied to a tree in a remote forest.
Rina Arano’s body was found June 14 on a slope less than a mile from a road near the villa of 33-year-old Hiroyuki Sampei, who was arrested in her disappearance, the Japan Times reported.
The Sun reported in a police statement that said: “Rina Arano was tied to a tree with no clothes on and has been dead for almost two weeks.”
Investigators believe Arano and Sampei met at a train station in Ibaraki Prefecture on June 5 after the two exchanged private messages on Twitter, according to the Japan Times.
Arano was reported missing by his family on June 8.
After Sampei picked Arano up, he drove her to his mansion in Hitachiota, police said.
Sampei was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and jailing Arano, the outlet reported.
Police said Sampei admitted taking Arano to his vacation home but denied forcing her to stay there, Japan Today reported. He also said he briefly handcuffed her but did so with her consent, police said.
Sampei told police he wasn’t sure where Arano went after she left his home, although her cellphone was found at his home, according to Japan Today.
No external injuries were found on her body and an autopsy will be performed to determine her cause of death, the outlet reported.
