A US sailor fatally stabbed a Japanese woman and then killed himself on Okinawa, Japanese officials said.

The Japanese police reportedly found the dead pair in a six-story apartment building in the Kuwae district of Chatan, a town on the western coast of Okinawa. The sailor, who remains unidentified, was attached to the III Marine Division, per Stars and Stripes.

Police said a bloodstained knife was found in the apartment near the man and believe he killed the woman, and then stabbed himself.

This photo shows an apartment where a USA serviceman and a Japanese woman were found dead in Okinawa, southwestern Japan, on Saturday. US Marine Corps leaders said they were aware of the deaths and will support the ongoing investigation. The child called a relative who contacted police.

A former reporter for McClatchy's Miami Herald, she also spent several years covering the White House. Ocasio-Cortez felt compelled to come to the defense of the anti-Israel Omar and attacked Rep.

Japan's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Takeo Akiba telephoned U.S. Ambassador William Hagerty, asking for cooperation with the investigation and efforts to prevent a recurrence, the Navy Times reports.

Akiba said he was "extremely disappointed" by the events and asked for United States cooperation in the probe and efforts to stop this tragedy from repeating itself.

Okinawa hosts the bulk of US military facilities in Japan. For decades the military presence has been a major point of contention for local residents, who complain about things like environmental pollution, noise from aircraft operated by American bases and the danger posed by their flyovers.
