Cram School Murder in Japan

Well, at least the teacher isn’t from Canada :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp:

[quote=“Japan Times”]A 12-year-old girl was stabbed to death Saturday morning by a teacher at a cram school in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture, police said.

Police investigate the Ujishinmei branch of the Kyoshin cram school chain Saturday morning after a teacher was arrested for fatally stabbing a student there.

Yu Hagino, 23, a Doshisha University senior and a part-time teacher at the Ujishinmei branch of the Kyoshin chain of cram schools, was arrested for allegedly killing Sayano Horimoto, a sixth-grader.

Hagino has admitted to stabbing the girl, police said. Investigators quoted him as saying, “I stabbed her with a kitchen knife in the course of a dispute.” He was also quoted as saying Horimoto previously “poked fun at him.”
