The newspapers are all starting to report almost identical stories about the taxicab murder case, rather than contradictory or wildly different tales.
Today's revelation--a female acquaintance of the accused, in whose residence the accused has had recent entry, has testified that the murder weapon resembles a knife that has been missing from her home. The papers also claim that the sailor, who has been denying any connection to the crime, has begun admitting a connection to the cabby's murder to U.S. military authorities.
How long this daily drip of revelations will be allowed to go on before the Yokosuka police make a formal request for the transfer of the sailor to their custody is anybody's guess.
