How did the porn star die?

The news of Rina Arano’s death came as a shock as disturbing details of her death surfaced on the internet. The missing Japanese adult film actor was found dead on June 14, naked and tied to a tree in a remote forest in Irabaki, Japan, according to reports.

Rina Arano, 23, is from Tokyo, Japan. She is the younger of two sisters and her father is a senior executive in the pharmaceutical industry. She is a freelance adult film model and actress and reportedly earns around 100,000 yen ($1,000) per shoot. Rina Arano was very popular for sexually explicit fan-made videos and the nature of her work was such that she met her clients at their homes for filming. News of his death has now surfaced on the internet.

Rina Arano’s reason for death: what you need to know

  1. Rina Arano would have left home on June 5 after telling her parents she would be meeting a friend. She then never returned home and calls on her phone went unanswered.
  2. On June 8, the parents of Rina Arano filed a complaint for the disappearance of her daughter. Investigation later revealed that Rina Arano was last seen outside a train station in Ibaraki Prefecture when she got into the car of 33-year-old Hiroyuki Sampei.
  3. Hiroyuki Sampei was then arrested by the police on suspicion of kidnapping and forcible confinement of Rina Arano.
  4. Police revealed that defendant Hiroyuki Sampei during interrogation claimed he bought Arano from his vacation home and briefly handcuffed her with his consent.
  5. Sampei reportedly denied forcing her to stay in his house and added that he did not know where Arano went after leaving his home.
  6. Continuing the investigation, police found her deceased body on June 14, naked and tied to a tree on a slope in a remote forest less than a mile from Sampei’s vacation home.
  7. For identification purposes, police released a description of her. Arano fans were able to identify his body by his distinctive mole and teeth.
  8. The police revealed in a statement that- “Rina Arano was tied to a tree without clothes and has been dead for almost two weeks. We are still trying to determine the cause of death. The man she was with has already been questioned.
  9. Photos and videos of the police forest recovering the body have gone viral on social media.
  10. Autopsy results revealed that Arano had suffered a fractured hyoid bone, a bone in his neck. The police also raise the possibility that Arano was strangled. The cause of his death is still undetermined.

Arano’s death highlighted the nature of the crimes committed against women and how, after days, no promising update has been found in her case. The way the adult film star was found in the woods in a compromising condition, one can only imagine the horrors she had to go through until she breathed her last in the middle of nowhere , far from his relatives. This also raises the issue of women’s safety on social media apps. Since Arano spoke to his clients on Twitter and other social media apps, it’s surprising that the mystery of his murder is kept secret.
