Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The "Sasebo slashing" refers to the murder of a 12-year-old Japanese schoolgirl, Satomi Mitarai by an 11-year-old classmate. The murder occurred on June 1, 2004 at an elementary school in Sasebo, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, and involved the slitting of Mitarai's throat and arms with a utility knife. The killer's real name has not been released to the press, as per Japanese legal procedures prohibiting the identification of juvenile offenders, and Japanese police referred to her as "Girl A."
