Stabbing your way to the top in Japan.

Agency presidents, be careful how you diversify. Story here, and additional reporting here. A tragic tale, but at least he wasn't stabbed in the back.

    from first link:

    The young secretary of a murdered advertising company president was arrested over the fatal stabbing Friday along with two other suspects, police said.

    The secretary, 23-year-old Yukiko Fukuoka, was arrested for the killing of company president Hidetaka Tanaka, along with Tanaka's former driver Minoru Ibushi, 34, and Shuichi Kamie, the representative of an adult- entertainment business that Tanaka effectively operated.Wow - shady!

    And from the second link...

    "One of the three people suspected of robbing and murdering a company president in Chuo Ward, Kobe, was appointed president of two companies owned by the president after his death, investigators have learned."

    Shady, yes. Sneaky, no. More proof that not all racial stereotypes are true.
