Police have arrested a man suspected of posting death threats against pop star Kumi Koda (26). Yosuke Nozaki, a 31-year-old salaryman from Kawagoe, Saitama, is said to have written multiple threats on the blog of Avex president Max Matsuura.

A total of three messages were posted to the blog by mobile phone on March 25. According to police, Nozaki has confessed, saying that he planned to kill Koda and himself. Investigators are still trying to identify his motive.

The threats were deleted after discovery, and Avex consulted Shibuya police to investigate the matter. Their investigation eventually led to Nozaki. Meanwhile, Matsuura updated his blog, saying that the comments on the blog would be limited to only approved users.
