War victim Nicola Furlong, 21, of Wexford

Just hours before she was murdered in a Tokyo hotel room, Wexford student, Nicola Furlong, had texted her mother, excited about her big night out at a Nicki Minaj concert and returning home to Ireland in “ten weeks”.

Furlong and her friend, another Irish student, Sarah Maher, were seen being pushed into a taxi outside the venue, Zepp Toyko. After complaints about noise at the high-end Keio Plaza hotel in Tokyo a staff member found Furlong unconscious on a hotel room floor. The Japanese police said her death was caused by strangulation.

Two Americans, a backing dancer, James Blackston (23) and a musician, [N.S. newspaper reprinted a rumor spread by a blogger, which has since proved to be false] (19) are in custody. They can be held for up to ten days under suspicion of sexual assault of the Irish students.

Although Maher was likely present for much of the attack, she remembers little of what happened that night, according to the Irish Independent. The Japanese police have allowed her to return to Ireland for her friend’s funeral but she may need to return to continue aiding the police with their investigation.

Early on in the investigation it was reported that the Japanese police were looking into the possibility that drugs were involved in the attack.

The Irish Independent reports that on Wednesday night the Japanese police were preparing to charge [wrong name] with the sexual assault and killing of Furlong.

Furlong’s body arrived home to Ireland on Thursday. She will be buried in Curracloe, County Wexford, this weekend.

Her mother, Angela, is heartbroken. She told the Irish Mirror that her daughter texted her just before the concert.

She said, “She sent me a text message before the concert saying, ‘We put on our fake tan, all our shaving is done we are ready to go now mam, talk to you soon. Ten weeks and I’ll be back in Ireland.’”

She described how hard this tragic news has been to digest. She said, “The news that your daughter is dead is very, very hard to accept. But the hardest of all was on the Saturday morning to hear what had actually happened to my baby. That was worse than actually hearing that she was dead.

“When we received the news that was worse. That was really, really, really worse.

“I knew there had been an accident and I hoped it was a car crash that she had been killed instantly. She was so tiny and it had given her a heart attack. Nobody would hurt my baby.”

She added, “She was my baby, she will always be my baby. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved her two sisters, her mam and her dad.”

Furlong had also told her mother that she was going to get invited to the after party of Nicki Minaj’s show.

Why were these girls even aware of a hideous, foreign "culture." Why were they allowed to patronize it? Why were they out on the streets unescorted?

I must say,that 19 year old, black "child", looks like he could be Obamas son.
Richerd Hines, if found quilty should be executed. James Blacstone, with his hip hop gansta look appears to need some prison time.
What a shame, Nicola Furlong, 21, so beautiful, but now so dead. My condolences to the family.
With black racism getting out of hand, and further with blacks being allowed to break the law and not pay the price because Eric Holder will not prosecute black crime, white girls and white women should avoid blacks in private settings. White women should think thrice before marrying a black.
Black racism is alive and well in America.
The black sub culture is dangerous.
Perhaps the American taxpayer, mostly white America, should invest in additional prisons. Thank you.

I just did a Google search and an Irish news source claimed the Japanese police would bring charges later this week against one of the suspects, presumably Hines.

People should be made to realize the suffering they'll cause their family should something bad happen to them as a result of being reckless. It's not just themselves they're taking a chance on. The Derbyshire "talk" should be given to all children.

For two college educated women to pair off with stranger blacks & join them in bed is beyond comprehension, unless they were eager for a cheap thrill.
Their family & friends in Ireland must feel very hurt & embarassed.
Looking at that utube video of Blackstone where he's doing the ape-like dance in a japanese metro while bothering passengers, one has to wonder what the Irish girls saw in those sub-humans.
