On Monday, Tokyo Metropolitan Police entered the second-floor residence, located in the Midorigaoka area, and found seven ice coolers inside the premises to contain the body parts belonging to eight women and one man.

The body parts, which included severed heads, were found in cold-storage containers and tool boxes, some covered in cat litter.

Authorities found the human remains in Shiraishi's home while investigating the disappearance of a 20 year old woman from Tokyo, whose body was then found among the remains. Detectives are working to identify the victims amid fears she may be one of them.

Her brother reported her missing late last month, and through her Twitter account found that she had been exchanging messages with Shiraishi. Shiraishi's neighbors noticed "foul smells" near his apartment lately. "It was meant to hide the body that I killed and to hide evidence", he told the police.

An investigation was launched after the woman's older brother reported her missing to the Takao Police Station in western Tokyo on October 24, saying he had not been able to contact her since October 21.

The suspect told the police that he had sent a Twitter message to the woman saying, "Let's die together", Kyodo reported. When they asked Shiraishi if he knew where the missing woman was, according to the Asahi report, he replied, "In that cooler". "During the course of the investigation, the heads of nine bodies have been discovered", the police told a local TV channel.

What throws weight behind the confession is the discovery of a saw from Shiraishi's room.
