So tragic. So sad.
Can one be possessed by Japanese anime until he murders someone?
When asked by reporters why he did it, he said he didn't know...WAH! Like that also can? Drugged by anime?

[SHARE] The Full Story Behind The Murder Of 15-Year-Old Ng Yuk Tim
Story @ Malaysia-Chronicle
KUALA LUMPUR - With the crime rate in Malaysia already so high, the macabre discovery of the body of a 15-year-old schoolgirl stuffed inside a gaudy green suitcase initially drew cynical response from the public - disgust and 'the government is not doing enough' or 'this country is going to the dogs'.
But sniffing a bigger story than usual rape and kill, local reporters were rewarded when they managed to track down the murder suspect as he was being taken to the court for remand.
Indeed this murder, fast becoming known as the Cosplay murder, looks set to make its mark - a most reprehensible one - in the annals of Malaysian criminal history.
Who is he?
His name has not been made public, but already the country knows quite a lot about the 23-year-old murder suspect.
He is not your usual druggie or foreign illegal but a rather clean-cut young man with a passion for Cosplay or costume play, which is like a hobby where participants don costumes to represent an anime (cartoon) character.
In particular, the suspect loved the Japanese anime, One Piece, and to play the character Z from the anime which is about the adventures of Monkey D.Luffy, a young boy with an elastic body.
He even bagged 5th place in the recent CPF Cosplay Competition held in Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur.
The suspect is also rather famous among the still small Cosplay community in Malaysia, which have reacted in shock at news of the murder.
