US police detail evidence against dead businessman

Los Angeles police are releasing details of why they believe a now-dead Japanese businessman was responsible for the murder of a girlfriend two years before his wife was fatally shot in Los Angeles.
Homicide detectives told a press conference Wednesday they have known for about 10 years that Kazuyoshi Miura was linked to the 1979 death of the girlfriend, Chizuko Shiraishi.
Miura committed suicide in jail last year after being extradited from Saipan to face charges of conspiring to have his wife Kazumi murdered in Los Angeles in 1981. She was shot during a visit to Los Angeles and died later in Japan.
The girlfriend disappeared shortly after arriving in Los Angeles from Japan. Her remains were found later but remained unidentified for years. Police don't know exactly how she died, but believe she was strangled or suffocated.
