Two “skilled workers” beat Japanese celebrity chef to death
Something stinks to high heaven here. Two “skilled workers” beat a Japanese celebrity chef to death and they are still at large? In Germany? Â Once again, we see that the police is just a bit too protective of the identities of the perps. Developing:
Miki Nozawa – whose Japanese-Italian dishes have been a hit with stars such as Naomi Campbell and Denzel Washington – died in hospital on Monday.
The 57-year-old was beaten to death after he confronted the two disgruntled diners who left without paying for their meal.
The two men, aged 36 and 50, had ordered a beef, vegetables and fried noodle dish at Nozawa’s eponymous restaurant in Sylt, an upscale German holiday island.
But the pair deemed the food unsatisfactory and failed to settlle the Â£16.91 bill.
Nozawa later cornered the suspects at a nearby lapdancing club and their argument escalated into a full-blown brawl and the chef was beaten unconscious.
German newspaper Bild reported that Nozawa sustained ‘big purple bruises’ on the left side of his body.
Nozawa’s ex-wife told a local newspaper that he was rushed to hospital with severe brain injuries and internal bleeding.
The Japanese chef later died from his injuries and authorities said post-mortem results were pending.
Senior public prosecutor RÃ¼diger Meienburg said further tests were being carried out to establish whether Nozawa had an undetected medical condition.
Meinenburg added: “We are vigorously investigating and trying to find out exactly what happened.”
German cops are said to be hunting for the two “skilled workers”.
