Mother arrested after leaving 3-year-old daughter alone
    2020-07-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TOKYO woman was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of leaving her 3-year-old daughter alone at their home for more than a week while spending time with her boyfriend and letting the child starve to death, police said.

Saki Kakehashi, 24, admitted to the allegations, the police said, adding they believe she had routinely neglected and abused the daughter, Noa.

Backing up the suspicion, a friend of Kakehashi’s told the police, “She had left home for several days or returned late at night, leaving her daughter unattended,” an investigative source said.

Autopsy results showed Noa died from severe dehydration and hunger, they said. The mother is suspected of leaving her alone at home for eight days in early June while visiting her boyfriend in Kagoshima Prefecture, southwestern Japan, according to another investigative source.

Kakehashi told investigators that she did not expect Noa to die as she thought “it would be alright” to leave the toddler alone in their apartment in Tokyo’s Ota Ward, where the two had been living alone since around July 2017 following her divorce from Noa’s father.

She made an emergency call upon her return from the trip on June 13, claiming Noa was not breathing, and the daughter was pronounced dead later at a hospital.
