Domestic Reporting on the Lindsay Ann Hawker Murder Case

Update 10: [Wednesday April 4th] No new information was divulged by the news or in the daily newspapers, but an article in the Asahi shows that the Lindsay Ann Hawker murder case was the number three story in terms of on-air time in Tokyo from March 26th to March 30th. The total time logged on four channels during the five day period was 3 hours, 33 minutes, and 32 seconds.

While this blog reported that the mass media was initially slow to report details of the case (lagging far behind reporting in England--were they waiting for some kind of press club release?), it is clear that authorities have been keen to keep suspected murderer Tatsuya Ichihashi's face at the front of the collective consciousness. Ichihashi's whereabouts are still unknown.
