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. The pain Junko had to go through in her last 44 days of life can never be imagined. Above all, the fact that four high school boys were doing all these inhumane acts was even more shocking! 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. Junko was tortured for 44 days by the boys. They kept her naked all the time during these 44 days. 100 different people raped Junko more than 500 times.

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 with the dumbells. Her pain had no end. They beat her with golf clubs, iron rods, and even stored 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 death sentence nor even life imprisonment as they were all under 18. Miyano was given a twenty-year sentence while the other three boys only seven. All the four boys might have been released from jail by now. 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.

  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

  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

  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 niña tenga una oportunidad de vida.
