Sailor stabs woman In Okinawa, police says.

A US Navy sailor and a Japanese woman were found dead — both stabbed — on Saturday in a bloody apartment bedroom on the Japanese island of Okinawa, police there said.

Both bodies have knife wounds, and investigators believe these were the cause of death, police said.
A minor was found unharmed in the apartment and is being taken care of by authorities, Okinawa police said.
The incident appeared to be a homicide-suicide, with the sailor having killed the woman, Japanese Deputy Foreign Minister Takeo Akiba said in a statement. Police did not immediately comment on a perpetrator or release any names.
