Still no clue over bath death man
Lindsay Ann Hawker
Lindsay Ann Hawker went to Japan to teach in October 2006
Japanese police have admitted they still have no clue as to the whereabouts of a man suspected of killing an English teacher.

It is more than four months since the body of Lindsay Ann Hawker, 22, from Brandon near Coventry, was found on a flat balcony in Ichikawa.

She had been placed in a sand-filled bathtub.

Police have been searching for a suspect, Tatsuya Ichihashi, 28, but he appears to have vanished.

Mr Ichihashi had reportedly asked Miss Hawker for English lessons a week before her death.

He had fled his apartment when police arrived to investigate him, losing his shoes and a rucksack in the chase.

A police officer has said that although they have various information, they still do not have clear clues to his whereabouts.
