The headline below, “Evidence on strangulation of Nicola Furlong said to be 'ambiguous.'” is deceptive. There is no ambiguity as to whether Nicola Furlong was strangled. The only ambiguity is as to whether her killer used a towel or his bare hands.

Evidence on strangulation of Nicola Furlong said to be “ambiguous”

As the trial in Tokyo continues over the murder of Nicola Furlong, the 21 year old Irish student that was killed in a Shinjuku hotel in May 2012, a forensics expert has called into question the method of how she was strangled. Richard Hinds, a 19 year old American, is on trial for the girl’s death, had admitted to “lightly pressing on her neck” while the two had sex, but denies any intention to kill her.

On Tuesday, forensic doctor Kenichi Yoshida, speaking for the prosecution, told the Tokyo District Court that markings on Furlong’s body indicated she was strangled with a “band-like object,” with him believing it was a towel. However, on Thursday the court heard testimony from Dr Marianne Hamel, a forensic pathologist from Pennsylvania, who said that the evidence was “ambiguous,” and by looking at the postmortem photographs it was not possible to prove how the girl was strangled. She pointed out that when objects like a towel are used, the victim would normally leave scratch marks on the skin where they tried to pull the object away, along with skin tissue collecting under the fingernails.

Dr Hamel is not trying to suggest that Furlong wasn’t strangled, but simply pointing out that it’s not possible to confirm if an object like a towel was used. Such a distinction is important, as Hind’s use of a rolled-up towel would indicate murderous intentions and could affect sentencing. Dr Hamel has stated that she found no mistakes in Dr Yoshida’s report, and agrees that Furlong was strangled for “several minutes.”

Hinds’ defense has tried to say that Furlong’s heavy drinking that night, in combination with her prescription for the drug Xanax, was the cause of her death. Dr Yoshida testified earlier this week that this was not the case. The trial is expected to continue through next week.

Second war crime defendant, dancer James Blackstone, aka James “King Tight” Jamari Blackstone, aka James Blackston, reported variously as 21 and 23

According to a report I just saw, the prosecution "asked for a maximum sentence of 10 years."

I have not sympathy for Black man's sluts. If a Black man kills them they were asking for it. Blacks like fucking white girls as a form of genocide and I call it crypto-rape because it is rape but they just play it off like it is just sex. These girls are to stupid or to in love with big black dicks to care that they are being raped. I hope Nicola had a great time.
