“Miho lived so hard. I want to leave that testimony. I want you to remember Miho’s name.”

A mother of a 19-year-old woman, one of 19 people who was killed in the murder case of Tsukui Yamayurien, a facility for people with intellectual disabilities in Sagamihara City, posted a note to the news agencies on January 8th and announced her name. “I can’t help but want to see you,” she wrote. Former employee Satoshi Uematsu (29), who was charged with murder and other charges, will begin the first trial at the Yokohama District Court on the same day.

According to her mother, Miho was good at grabbing people’s hearts. Although she had no words for autism, she quickly approached the person she wanted to get along with and had been treated like an acquaintance.

The trial begins on January 8th and is set t conclude in mid March.
