Cold Case Homicide Detectives Get Their Man

Los Angeles: A murder suspect who has been eluding dragnet has finally been captured.

On February 21, 2008, at 9:30 AM, detectives from the LAPD’s Cold Case Homicide Unit were informed that 60-year-old, Kazuyoshi Miura, was arrested on a warrant, charging him with the murder of his wife, Kazumi Miura, and conspiracy.

Mrs. Miura, who was 28 years old at the time, was shot on November 18, 1981. She was at a location in the 200 block of Fremont Avenue, in downtown Los Angeles. She died over a year later in Japan on November 30, 1982.

Miura’s was taken into police custody on the Island of Saipan, located in the northern Marianas Islands, a commonwealth territory of the United States. Cold Case Detectives have been closely working with authorities in Guam and Saipan, believing that Miura would be visiting the island from his residence in Japan.

Miura was arrested at Saipan’s airport on February 22, 2008, at noon.

Miura’s extradition is pending, and there is no additional information available at this time.
