Police were building 2nd case against Japanese man

Police believe a Japanese businessman who hanged himself in a Los Angeles jail three months ago while facing trial in his wife's death had killed another woman 30 years ago.
The Los Angeles Times reports that detectives were building a second case against Kazuyoshi (kah-zu-YOH'-shee) Miura (me-YU'-rah) when he committed suicide in October.
Investigators say they have a strong circumstantial case linking Miura to the murder of 34-year-old Chizuko (CHEE'-zoo-koh) Shiraishi (SHEE'-rah-ee-shee), who traveled from Japan to Los Angeles in March 1979 and disappeared.
Detective Rick Jackson said Tuesday that Miura stole money from a bank account belonging to Shiraishi.
Miura hanged himself after being brought from Saipan to face a charge of conspiring to murder his wife during a 1981 trip.
