‘Twitter Killer’ who chopped up women on hunt for a wife before his execution

A murderer dubbed the Twitter Killer is looking for a woman to marry so he can swap vows with someone before he is executed for his deadly crimes.

Takhiro Shiraishi, from Zama in Japan, was convicted of the murders of eight women and one man after police found the remains of his victims in his flat.

The 30-year-old killer was rumbled when the brother of one of his victims uncovered messages between Shiraishi and his 23-year-old victim on Twitter which led police to the murderer’s address.

Shiraishi confessed to police that he met young women via social media who he killed and then dismembered.

He received the death penalty in Japan after he was found to be lying about his victims after he falsely claimed they consented to be killed.

Reports now state the killer is hoping to find a wife so he has someone that will visit him before he is put to death.

He told Japanese newspaper The Mainichi: "Almost no one comes to see me so extending (the period he can receive visitors while on appeal) seems pointless. Now I just want to meet a normal woman.

"I want to get married, is what I'm saying. If I do, she could continue to see me even when I'm in the Tachikawa Detention House (death row)."

He went on to hint that he has enjoyed some semblance of a dating life with women outside of jail since he was put behind bars.

He explained: "I want to find someone who will marry me in prison. Several people have come here in the last two years, but nothing led to marriage.”

He also revealed he has received “fan mail” from other women.

Shiraishi claimed: "I get fan mail sometimes too, but there are not many women who are the kind of person to come here to see me."

Asked why he wanted to get married, he replied: "I was thinking it'd be good to have someone who supports me. She'd be able to come and see me here and bring me things."

A date for Shiraishi’s execution is yet to be set.
