Investigators believe the same person or persons is also behind messages received on Saturday that led detectives to the cat carrying the mystery memory card.

It is not yet clear what the aim of the messages is, but commentators have speculated the culprit may enjoy toying with investigators and media.

You've got to like this part:

Japan’s well-resourced National Police Agency (NPA) was embarrassed after it emerged officers had extracted “confessions” from four people who had nothing to do with the emails.

Police held one of the suspects for several weeks before a broadcaster and lawyer received another anonymous message containing information that investigators conceded could only have been known by the real culprit.

The four were released as the NPA chief issued a humiliating climbdown, acknowledging they had been the victims of a hacker, and promising his cyber-crime unit would brush up its skills.

Extracted I guess means intimidated and mild torture ie; sleep depravation.

Sounds like a plot for a super villain scheme.

You think they would learn that torture will get you a confession but its probably a lie. Held that guy for weeks. Don't want to be in the wrong place at the wrong time there.
