A US Navy sailor and a Japanese woman were found dead - both stabbed - on Saturday in a bloody apartment bedroom on the Japanese island of Okinawa, police there said. The sailor, who remains unidentified, was attached to the III Marine Division, per Stars and Stripes. The body of the 31-year-old was discovered on Saturday next to that of a woman in her 40s.
The police received an emergency call at around 7:25 a.m. after the two had initially been found bleeding at the apartment in the town of Chatan, and confirmed their deaths later at the scene.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is supporting the Okinawa police investigation, said III MEF spokesman 1st Lt. David Mancilla.
The incident was discussed by Japan's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Takeo Akiba and US Ambassador William Hagerty during a phone call, the Japanese foreign ministry said as cited by Associated Press.
