Woman Extradited From Japan in Connection With 2011 Murder

Detectives tracked a 48-year-old woman to Japan after she was wanted in connection with the 2011 murder of a 75-year-old man.

Seattle Police Detectives, in a joint effort with the Japanese National Police and the US Marshalls Office, took the woman into custody and have extradited her to face charges for the slaying.

The Seattle Police Department will now work with the King County Prosecutor’s Office as this case continues.

We would like to thank the Ministry of Justice of Japan and the Okinawa Prefectural Police.
