Police on Thursday arrested a 20-year-old woman after her one-year-old son was found dead in Fukuoka’s Minami Ward.

The baby boy, who has been named as Ryusei Yashima, was discovered by officers near a river at around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday night after the boy’s great-grandmother contacted police to report that her granddaughter had killed her great-grandson. Police found the baby limp and he was confirmed dead at a hospital around an hour later.

During questioning, the child’s mother, who is divorced, told police, “I strangled him to death.” She then went to her grandmother’s house. Police said the woman has so far given no motive for the crime.
