English teacher raped & murdered in Japan - the timeline

Check out the comprehensive timeline of key events in Lindsay Ann Hawker murder. It spans from Oct 2006 to early Nov 2009. Relentless pursuit of justice by the family of Miss Hawker.

Japanese prosecutors on Wednesday charged a 30-year-old man with raping and murdering a British teacher in 2007, in a high-profile case that shocked both countries.

Tatsuya Ichihashi, 30, had already been charged with dumping the body of 22-year-old English teacher Lindsay Ann Hawker and the case was now expected to go to trial.

Ichihashi was arrested last month as the only suspect in the murder after spending two years on the run and altering his appearance with plastic surgery.

He has refused to answer questions over the killing since his arrest. Ms Hawker's naked body was found on March 26, 2007 in a sand-filled bathtub on the balcony of Ichihashi's apartment just outside Tokyo.

From Straits Times, "Man raped, murdered teacher".
