Junko Furuta Case: The Brutal Murder Story of a Girl

This is a real story that can leave you shattered. This spine-chilling story is about a 17-year old Japanese girl, Junko Furuta who was kidnapped, raped, tortured like hell for 44 days, and finally killed in an extremely brutal way by four boys after 44 days in the year 1988. Her body was discovered in a concrete drum, following which her murder case was called the “concrete-encased high school girl murder case.”

We might have heard of many murders but this particular murder story of Junko Furuta has gone to the next unimaginable level of cruelty.

One can never imagine the pain Junko had to go through in her last 44 days of life. Above all, the fact that four high school boys were doing all these inhumane acts was even more shocking and disturbing! Hiroshi Miyano, Nobuharu Minato, Kamisaku Jo, and Yasushi Watanabe are the four boys involved in this horrifying crime.

Junko Furuta – A Japanese Girl Killed Brutally

Junko Furuta was a 17-year old girl studying at Saitama Yashio-Minami High School in Japan. Just like any other normal student, Junko had her own aspirations and dreams which she wanted to fulfill. Not just that, she even had other good qualities for which she was liked by all her classmates too. She neither had the habit of smoking nor drinking. She was also away from drugs.

She was very beautiful. There was a boy Hiroshi Miyano who liked her. He went to Junko with her proposal but Junko denied this proposal upfront. Hiroshi could not take this rejection from her which made him furious and he decided to take revenge on her.

Junko Furuta Story – Here is what all happened

On November 25, 1988, as Junko was returning home from her part-time job on her bike, a random boy passed by her and made her fall. Miyano went to her as though helping her. But then in no time and before Junko realized what was happening, Miyano along with his three friends kidnapped Junko.

They took Junko to a house in Adachi, Tokyo which was owned by one of the kidnapper’s parents. The boys made Junko call her parents and say that she ran away, she was safe and that would be staying with some of her friends for a while.

Then started the real torture of the innocent girl by the boys. No one can even imagine the pain they gave to Junko, not even in the worse nightmare. The heartless boys tortured Junko for 44 days. They kept her naked all the time during these 44 days. She was raped by 100 different people more than 500 times.

Junko Furuta tortured terribly by the boys

The boys tried all terrifying ways of torturing Junko. They beat her like anything. Scissors, bottles, a hot exploding light bulb, grilled chicken skewers, roasting needles, and irons were inserted into her genitals. They burnt different parts of her body as well. They did not think twice before cutting off her breasts. The girl was even forced to eat cockroaches and drink urine.

The boys crossed all limits in trying to torture and assault Junko. They urinated on her. They even hung her from the ceiling and made her their punching bag. She was made to sleep in the balcony in cold winter. Her stomach was crushed by the dumbells. Her pain had no end.

They beat her with golf clubs, and iron rods, and even stored her in the refrigerator for hours. They made a number of holes in her body with needles. The cruel boys even burnt har genitals, clitoris, and eyelids with a cigarette lighter. One of her nipples was twisted with pliers. Having so many injuries all over her body, Junko could not even stand due to pain. She had to crawl downstairs to use the bathroom.

After around twenty days of her abduction and torture, Junko somehow managed to call an emergency number to call the police. However, she was caught by the boys who disconnected the call by snatching away the phone from her before Junko could even speak. Following this, she was punished severely by burning her legs. They poured lighter fuel on her legs and burnt them with fire. After that, she could not even walk.

She could not breathe because of a blood clot in her nose. She had internal bleeding and as such she could not even digest the food which led her to vomit. But the inhuman boys even beat her for making the carpet dirty by vomiting.

Junko Furuta – Death

Junko even stopped urinating after around 30 days. Her eardrums also got damaged. Not able to handle this pain anymore, Junko finally begged to kill her and close it all. Finally, the torturers mutilated her on the 44th day of her abduction.

The boys did not spare even the mutilated body and beat with an iron barbell. Later they poured lighter fluid on her face, stomach, legs, and face and burnt with fire. This final torture went on for around two hours. And later that day i.e., on January 4, 1989, Junko finally died.

The saddest part of this Junko Furuta story is that the brutal murderers were neither given the death sentence nor even life imprisonment as they were all under 18.ย Miyano was given a twenty-year sentence while the other three boys were only seven. All the four boys might have been released from jail by now.

People still remember Junko on Social Media

It has been more than three decades since this unfortunate incident happened which resulted in Junko Furuta’s death. People still remember the innocent girl and keep her in their prayers.

Check out a few tweets below:

It is really sad to know that very little justice has been done to Junko Furuta’s brutal murder. The innocent girl has to go through intolerable pain for having done nothing, literally nothing.

Share your thoughts on this disturbing story which was, unfortunately, a real incident!

  1. Wow, 4 inhuman maniacs did all this to a beautiful girl just because of a rejection yet didnt feel the torture junko felt over the past 44 days, if I was the dumbass judge I wouldve given the police brutal permission to make them feel the pain of a beautiful young woman, underage or not, junko was also underaged

    • If I was the judge I would torture the boys in the same way. Plus additional thein greyjoy torture. Fucking maniacs didn’t get punished. I am very angry and frustrated

      • Death is still an easy way to get out
        They shouldโ€™ve tortured them like how they did to her
        Terribly in pain listening about them being free and still committing crimes

    • True! If I were the judge, I would’ve given them the exact amount of pain they gave her. But unfortunately, it wouldn’t have been equal no matter what, they only deserve hell.

  2. I would’ve kidnapped those 4 demons and cut their p_n_s and let them step on fire and let 10 men do ___ with them per day and I would let them eat dog pop and let them kneel on fire coal until 50 days and at the 49 day I will boil them but let them live and on the 50th day I will set them on fire and burn their body( if not fully burn by the fire) and after their body turn to powder I will pour it in the lake see no one will know who they are

  3. this is fully disgusting i guess woman has no rights she had no freedom of speech like wth is wrong with those boys people get arrested for life and shit like that for drugs and stuff but them no if i ever came in contact with them i will do the same shit as they did to her rip the tip of there penises off and more inhuman things the sad part is she didn’t even get justice idk whats wrong with people now a days but its fucked up and not ok… i honestly have no words after reading this i had tears in my eyes no woman matter of fact nobody should ever have to experience such a thin underage or not they should get death.

  4. These juvenile laws should be re-written. In case of these like brutal murders, they should not even be killed instantly. All the things they had done to the girl, should be tried on them as well. A slow death is justified for such monsters

    • right, like feeding them to hungry wild dogs alive , getting locked into a giant container with boiling water or how about feeding to hungry rats while they watch their own body slowly getting torn and bonus they get their disgusting parent who raised them watch as well and the love ones of the poor girl. that is satisfying.

  5. That is really cruel , the fact that we live in a society were girls don’t evn have rights to reject someone makes me scared of living here ,I just can’t even imagine the pain she had gone through ……I hope these 4 men really have a sloww painfull death and noo one by thier side to treat them that they should beg to god for their death . Ughhh!!!!

  6. This case disgusted me. Junko a beautiful young lady that had a bright future. These men will surely burn in hell. 44 days of torture for no absolute reason. And the made her suffer and die slowly, which makes no sense not even one bit. I cant even start to think that these demons live on the same fucking planet as me. Its sad that men think its okay to treat women like this, now in no way shape or form am i talking about all men just some.

  7. What the hell has this world come to?! Those “people” are not human beings at all. They are the prime definition of pure evil. That poor beautiful girl! I wish someone would do the same thing to those monsters. Furuta Junko deserves justice!!

  8. This crime is not at all small… I think the punishment should be over and above of countries laws because this brutal murder’s punishment should be brutal punishments for them… Lifetime imprisonment with same and more tortured, pain they given to victim,, Also the faces of crimals should be open.. People should know about that criminals…

  9. Es increible que haya seres sobre este mundo seres inhumanos con una inimaginable perversidad. Si existe lo inimaginable en este inconmesurable existir , deseo que esta niรฑa tenga una oportunidad de vida.

  10. At that time i was not born,but if i was there …I’ll ask God please forgive me but i won’t spare the those four guys,i’ll tortured them very badly till last hour.

  11. Omg just because she rejected himโ€ฆthis is like such a dumb reason to kill her, and abuse her and torture her. Wtf is even wrong with those boys, they Heard- this girl Junko, she dosenโ€™t want a Boyfriend, No means No. He could get someone else instead of Torture her. I wish they get Tortured back like they did to her.

  12. I have been looking through the comments and most of them are brutal yet these people domt deserve to live but in my prospective torturing like that even if they did the same wouldn’t make u a better person it will make u just as bad as them yet u should just kill them instead if doing the same thing they did i know it doesnโ€™t make since but hopefully it does to some of u

    • ‘Just kill them’ ? What a cute punishment…They can just die cutely like that? They SHOULD EXPERIENCE WHAT they did to her. Thennnnn,DIED in the same way as her in concrete. I agree with all those brutals comments.I dont understand some ppl say “u guys shouldn’t act like them๐Ÿฅบ..it makes you guys the same๐Ÿฅบ… remember god๐Ÿฅบ blabla” tf????I trust God will forgive those who kills the rapists & God will also punish the rapists in the afterlife…Yes,double tortures..Those rapists dont deserve to repent AT ALL.

  13. They need to burn in hell and never come back they did bad for her and she will hunt ya’ll DOWN SO BAD THAT SHE WILL TORTURED BACK

  14. How does that judge sleep at night!?! He has no children, sister or nieces? If it was one of his family I highly believe he sentence them to death already. I hope her spirit haunts all that was involve in her torture until they succumb to horrific deaths themselves. The people in that country should be outrage & fight against the judge for Suitable sentence, An arm for an arm, a leg for a leg, chop their genitals, some form of justice! Karma gets them all, lord!

  15. WTF 7 Years inprisionment only, For this hellish brutal torture ?. ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Are you f**king kidding me. These are not normal humans they are fu**king psycopaths, releasing them again into the society is like putting everyone in danger. What the hell the judge was smoking ๐Ÿšฌ. The people of the country should have protested and stopped the god damn country, so that government revise these minor protection laws.

  16. This says A LOT about that disgraceful country. A country that openly tortures animals can’t be expected to treat girls/women any better can they? These Mongrels are the lowest parasites on the plant, they don’t deserve anything but misery and pain throughtout their entire miserable lives. Their entire bloodlines should be wiped off the face of the Earth.

  17. Itโ€™s horrible that they only got 7 YEARS??? And some bitch ass dudes in the comments wishing they could YouTube women that way. SMHโ€ฆ dumb society these days and Iโ€™m only 11 years old and this is another reason I am afraid of. The Male gender.

  18. Oml poor junko she deserved better imagine being in her place I wish the boys could get the worst punishment in this world what a heartless mf’s rest in piece junko, they are very nasty just bc she rejected him? she even had a job and was a good student she even had a bright future and those son of a bitches destroyed her life into pieces this case is very brutal, They deserved to die in the most brutal way.

  19. Why those evils released from jail they didn’t get punishment how can this law so useless and why thier parents so careless about for a girl when she was a very good girl ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก
    I’m really sad for junko rest in peace๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  20. No worries guys even they’re not tracked down by the most dumbest polices ever, God had tracked them already and even they’re set free and managed to slip through the punishment of their dumb government I am more than a hundred percent sure that they’ll not gonna slip God’s punishment for them in hell.those bishes will sufferrrr!!๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค

    also i think God let this happen to her so that it’ll teach us a lesson esp. the government and ppl to not leave it like that and make the same mistake and as I said God will not leave it like the way they did so.. enjoy hell BOYS :>

  21. Justice, equality, law and order are just lies the evil isn’t punished in depth of hell, the evil isn’t just thoughts and actions, the evil is only the reflection of ourselves that we neglect in mirror.
    It is the part of humanity it is the part of all of us rather than thinking about 4guys who did this shameful disgusting and death worthy act I am more ashamed of the 100 guys who didn’t take any actions on it.
    This world needs demons to realise that what we’re doing isn’t having much positive effects on our society.
    Even if court forgives the criminal we have billions of living humans who could’ve taken better actions but we just read it scroll and move forward.

    I am ashamed of being a human๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

  22. She did nothing to deserve that torture. She rejected a guy on a date, and in return they suddenly have the right to do those awful things to her?! NO! I swear, that judge should have told the police to torture them the same way they tortured her, but for two years. And then lock them in prison for the rest of their lives.

  23. I wish she will get a better life after rebirth she has gone through a lot I can’t even imagine . She deserves a much better life. And the motherfucking judge didn’t even justify this case he sure will die in hell.

  24. Also the mother of one of the boys destroyed Junko’s grave because according to her Junko had ruined her son’s life!

  25. I would join too.

    This is what the people of Japan should of done. But instead they was all cowards. The police, the judge, everyone.

    They failed her and left her to get tortured for 44 days. Even after the death was a poxy 7 year sentences which there all out now. Living life. While she is gone and the pain she must of went through is so sad to even think. Iโ€™m so ๐Ÿ˜ก i canโ€™t sleep at night.

  26. These disgusting police donโ€™t give a sh### and itโ€™s actually really sad she had to go threw that the police should have killed them or given them what she had to go threw itโ€™s honestly disgusting what some men do rest in peace ๐Ÿ˜“

  27. Did her parents not care about her? If i called my parents and said i was running away they’d track me down but it seems like her parents didn’t care.
