Kyoto police yesterday identified 41-year-old man suspect behind the fire incident as Shinji Aoba. Japanese police officials are investigating fire case in Kyoto’s leading anime firm which killed dozens of people, local media reported on Saturday.

Dozens of detectives are tasked with investigating the most violent crimes in decades in the so-called security state.

The fire yesterday killed 34 lives and injured the dozens at Kyoto Animation, known among fans worldwide for popular manga animation, making fans and people deeply surprised and sad.

Japanese authorities are usually waiting for official arrests before posting any further details.

“We make sure this is a treacherous fire and murder,” said senior police officer at a press conference.

Aoba is in serious condition and burns all over the body.

He was transferred to a special facility for treatment, said Kyoto police official.

As the firefighters fired at the fire and detected survivors on Sunday, the Aoba man was seen lying on a bench in the park about 500 meters from the studio, reported Jiji Press news agency, quoting nearby residents who said the man was sleeping.

Police suspect Aoba has been in the park for several days to spy on the studio in secret.

Local media said Aoba had served a three-and-a-half year jail term for stealing money from a convenience store.

The police do not know the job of the suspect.
