The Japanese teenager and Junior (grade 11) attended Yashio-Minami High School in Saitama Prefecture in Misato. On November 25th, 1988, Junko left School and was walking home (although some reports say she was walking to her part-time after school job.) She never made it home. She was kidnapped by a group of young men, including a 17-year-old who was identified as ‘Jō’ and would be later given the surname Kamisaku.

That was the beginning of her 44 days of torture.

Texas set to execute Lisa Coleman for gruesome murder of child

Ten years later, Coleman is set to be executed in Texas for her role in the boy’s death. Barring the unlikely success of a last-minute appeal to the supreme court, on Wednesday at 6pm CT, the 38-year-old will become only the 15th woman put to death in the US since capital punishment was restored in 1976. Though women commit about one in 10 murders in the US they account for only 1% of executions.

But the jury in Tarrant County was persuaded to hand down the ultimate punishment after hearing testimony at Coleman’s trial that detailed the gruesome treatment the child suffered at a low-rent apartment complex a short drive south of the Dallas Cowboys’ NFL stadium.
