Serial killers are not just a western phenomenon. There are and there have been serial killer all over the globe. However the story of Seisaku Nakamura is an even more disturbing one, the reason being is that he killed his first victims when he was aged 14.
Seisaku Nakamura (1924 – 1943) is also known as Hamamatsu Deaf Killer
He is believed to have fatally stabbed eleven people in the Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan.
Seisaku Nakamura was born deaf. He was intelligent, achieving high marks at school, but was treated poorly by his family and was a social misfit. He enjoyed films where men used Japanese swords to assassinate people.
On August 22, 1938, he attempted to rape two women, but they resisted him, so he murdered them. On August 18, 1941, he murdered a woman and injured another woman. On August 20, he murdered three people. On September 27, he murdered his brother, and injured his father, his sister, his brother’s wife and his brother’s child. On August 30, 1942, he murdered a couple, their daughter and their son, and attempted to rape another daughter, but gave up.
Information about his crimes were restricted because many thought news about his crimes would cause excessive trouble during the already tense war time, so Nakamura went unapprehended for longer than he might have otherwise. His family knew that he was responisible for the deaths but were afraid of revenge and did not come forward.
He was arrested for nine murders on October 12, 1942. Probably due to the fact that he had killed his first victims when he was still a minor those 2 murders were excluded from the trial..On November 11, his father Fumisada Nakamura committed suicide.He was tried as an adult under the Wartime Law . The doctors claimed that he was not guilty by reason of insanity. However, the trial proceeded rapidly and he was executed soon after.
