Japanese police found nine dismembered bodies hidden in coolers in an apartment southwest of Tokyo, an apparent serial killing case that is transfixing and horrifying the nation.Police were working Tuesday to identify the victims after the man who lived there, 27-year-old Takahiro Shiraishi, confessed to cutting them up and hiding them in cold-storage cases, some covered with cat litter, a police spokesman said.The missing woman is thought to be one of the eight women and one man who were dismembered and hidden in the apartment from late August to late October.A toolbox and saw found in Shiraishi's apartment may have been used to dismember the bodies, the police official said.Police first found the severed heads of two victims in coolers in the apartment's entryway, then found the bodies of the other seven while searching the apartment.
