Lucie Blackman was a beautiful 21 year old british woman who had always dreamt of moving to Japan. May of 2000, that's what she did. Lucie got a job as a hostess in a popular nightclub. A hostess is a young woman who drinks at a bar, male clients come in to see her and they pay for the hostess to drink with them, sing karaoke, flirt, play games, etc. Sometimes the hostess will date the customers, outside the club, for a price. But I assure you, it is NOT prostitution. There's zero sex involved. The men will take them to parties, movies, etc. It's literally just paying for company, which many young Japanese businessmen prefer, they work 60-70-80 hrs a week, they're too tired to make real relationships. This is acceptable in their culture.
Saturday, July 1st, 2000, Lucie went on a date with a new client . This date had promised her a new cell phone for her time.
Lucie called her roommate, Louise Phillips twice from the dates phone that night. She said she was at the beach, having a good time, and she'd be home in an hour.
Lucie never made it home.
The next day, a man with a Japanese accent called Louise, and he spoke English very well. Just like that, he said that Lucie suddenly joined a cult and that she'd not be coming home ever again.
This was so obviously bullshit, and everyone knew it. On Monday, Louise called Lucie’s parents in England.
This case became huge. Even Tony Blair became involved when Japanese authorities refused to investigate.
Lucie’s body was found in a seaside cave on Feb 9th, seven months after she went missing. She was cut to pieces, and her head was in concrete. No one knows the true cause of death, only that it was murder.
Joji Obara was the 48 year old wealthy businessman who took Lucie out that night. He liked to take a hostess on a date, and bring them to his seaside apartment. Here he would drug them with rohypnol and chloroform and rape them. Many hostesses claimed this happened to them throughout the years. The man made the girls comfortable, and he looked so harmless. They trusted him. (Cont)
