Tsutomu Miyazaki, popularly known as the Little Girl Murderer or the Otaku Murderer, was a Japanese serial killer who murdered four young girls. Also a cannibal and a necrophile, he was apparently influenced by Japanese anime and pornography. He used to preserve body parts of his victims as trophies. Miyazaki had originally intended to be an English teacher but later he trained to become a photo technician. His first victim was a four-year-old girl named Mari Konno. It wasn’t long after that he continued his killings and murdered three more young girls. The murders shocked the general public and he became known as the ‘The Little Girl Murderer’ in the media. Despite a massive investigation by the police, he evaded capture for a very long time. He was finally captured when he was trying to take pictures of a girl whose father caught him in the act. He was returning to his car when he was arrested by police officers. Later, he blamed his alter ego ‘Rat Man’ for his terrible crimes. Though the defense tried to present him as insane, he was eventually sentenced to death in April 1997. His execution took place after a period of eleven years.
