Have her contact Kim Kardashian’s art ‘dealer’. He can get her the best price and skip all the ‘red tape’:

“Alex Vervoordt has amassed millions in personal wealth by ‘acquiring’ antiquities and artworks for Bill Gates and A-list ‘celebrities’. This does not appear to be his first ‘mistake’ with required ‘paperwork’” -

Guilty or not, I’m sure the Japanese police will get their usual confession.

Oh I’m sure this 25 yr old beauty married this 77 yr old jiji because she genuinely loved him for who he was.

His wealth had nothing to do with it

Nozaki published an autobiography in 2016 in which he likened himself to the mythical Spanish playboy Don Juan, claiming to have given 3 billion yen to 4,000 "beautiful women."

Poor misguided soul! That is not "Don Juan", that is a "john". Surrounding himself with better people could have possibly avoided this outcome.

This women seems quite the ambitious type willing to do whatever it took to get away from the world she lived in Hokkaido. That kind of ambition also goes hand and hand with impatiences. She does not seem to be the brightest person, though. Maybe the stereotype of the bimbo rings true here. I suspect there is a younger man somewhere in this story.

She wanted her cake and eat it, too! If the allegations are true then Nogazaki was an obstacle that needed to be removed.

A 25-year-old woman who was arrested last week for the alleged 2018 murder of her elderly wealthy husband in western Japan is suspected of having planned to sell at least one of the expensive paintings he owned, investigative sources said Thursday.

Information of this kind usually come from police authorities via kisha exclusive press club. It should be carefully handled, cross-checked with independent resources. Although (or because) she is very suspicious, I dare stress the presumption of innocence at this moment.

She sounds suspicious, but I have not seen any clear evidence, only suspicious clued collected by the police. If there was more, would we not have seen it?

Not sure I would label her a beauty. Hotter girls working at my local family mart, for real. Old dude must have needed some new spectacles.

She was just as calculated as he was. However, she had the intent to see him go away forever. RIP don juan.

What seems more suspicious is what I read somewhere else. It seems that there's more of a motive for the town he lived in to find her guilty and also his other relatives want some of his fortune too. Apparently the big deal is that he left his estate to the town and the wife tried to secure her grasp on his fortune as anybody would have.

Beauty is in the eye of beholder, but in my opinion he could have got better merchandise for the money. And let's not start with character, after all he ended up dead...

Yeah, he left most of it to the town leaving her and the other family members with very little. However, there are marriage laws in place that entitle surviving spouses close to half or more of pensions and property. Those laws supercede his dying wishes. The town will get less than before he was married.

If she is charged with murder then the relatives may attempt to go after her share. The town still gets its piece.

I do not believe the police have any hard evidence just circumstantial evidence. Selling expensive property that once belong to your deceased spouse is not a crime. People do it all the time. They are basically going to try and keep her in custody until she confesses. They will pull a "Ghosn" on her!

Another factor to consider are the possibility of insurance policies that wouldn't need to be paid out if she just happened to be the guilty party. Seems that there's more motive in the interest of other parties for her to be guilty.

And how many of those hot girls at your Famima would marry the old guy, never mind his money? It is not just a question of spectacles, it also one of personal priorities. It takes 2 to party.

In the event, I remain agnostic about this. She sure looks guilty, but I am not convinced there is proof. There are certainly some parties who want her to be guilty.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder and hot is judged between the legs
