Final Aum Shinrikyo Sarin Gas Attack Fugitive Traced to Kawasaki

Katsuya Takahashi, the last Aum Shinrikyo fugitive still on the run for the 1995 sarin attack on the Tokyo subway system, probably lived in a Kawasaki apartment under the name Shinya Sakurai until late last year and may still be in the city, investigative sources said Tuesday.

A security camera in Kawasaki recorded footage of a man resembling Takahashi between Sunday and Tuesday, police said.

They plan to search the Kawasaki apartment for evidence soon and will continue questioning cult fugitive Naoko Kikuchi, 40, who was arrested Sunday in connection with the deadly nerve gas attack, and Hiroto Takahashi, 41, who was arrested Monday on suspicion of harboring her at a home in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture.
