The police are also wondering if the victim had any enemies. He was single. He had many friends and a well-paid job. However, according to the record, he was guilty of computer crimes in the past.
"He was charged with breaking into several computer systems over the last year," said Detective Lu. "We're notsure whether this made him any enemies. We suppose that the victim knew his murderer."
So far, the only suspect is a short thin man who was seen running down Corn Street at 10 p.m. last night. A witness reported that he was breathing heavily and had blood on his shirt.
However, the suspect could prove that he was somewhere else at the time of the crime and insisted that he was not guilty.
The victim's parents have offered a reward of ￥50,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of the murderer. Anyone who can provide useful information should contact the police.
