This is a true story that can destroy you. This chilling story is about a 17-year-old Japanese girl, Junko Furuta who was kidnapped, raped, tortured like hell for 44 days and finally brutally murdered by four boys after 44 days in 1988. Her body was discovered in a concrete drum, after which her murder case was called the murder case. “Concrete Murder Case for High School Girls.”
We may have heard of many murders, but this particular Junko Furuta murder story has taken it to the next unimaginable level of brutality.
You can never imagine how much pain Junko went through in her last 44 days of her life. Above all, the fact that four high school students did all these inhumane acts was even more shocking and disturbing! Hiroshi Miyano, Nobuharu Minato, Kamisaku Jo, and Yasushi Watanabe are the four boys involved in this heinous crime.
Junko Furuta – A Japanese girl who was brutally murdered
Junko Furuta was a 17-year-old girl who studied at Saitama Yashio-Minami High School in Japan. Like any other normal student, Junko had her own aspirations and dreams that she wanted to fulfill. Not only that, she even had other good qualities for which she was also loved by all her classmates. She was not in the habit of smoking or drinking. She was also into drugs.
She was very beautiful. There was a boy Hiroshi Miyano who liked her. He went to Junko with her proposal, but Junko denied this proposal beforehand. Hiroshi couldn’t handle this rejection from her, which infuriated him and he decided to take revenge on her.
Junko Furuta Story – Here’s What Happened
On November 25, 1988, when Junko was returning home from her part-time job on her bike, a random boy passed her and dropped her. Miyano approached her as if he were helping her. But in no time and before Junko realized what was going on, Miyano and his three friends kidnapped Junko.
They took Junko to a house in Adachi, Tokyo, owned by one of the kidnapper’s parents. The boys had Junko call her parents and say that she ran away, that she was safe and that she would be staying with some of her friends for a while.
Then the real torture of the innocent girl by the boys began. No one can imagine the pain they caused Junko, not even in the worst nightmare. The heartless boys tortured Junko for 44 days. They kept her naked the whole time during these 44 days. She was raped more than 500 times by 100 different people.
Junko Furuta horribly tortured by the boys
The boys tried all terrifying ways to torture Junko. They beat her like anything. Scissors, bottles, a hot exploding light bulb, grilled chicken skewers, roasting needles and irons were inserted into her genitals. They also burned several parts of her body. They didn’t think twice before cutting off her breasts. The girl was even forced to eat cockroaches and drink urine.
The boys crossed all boundaries in torturing and attacking Junko. They peed on her. They even hung her from the ceiling and made her their punching bag. She had to sleep on the balcony in the cold winter. Her stomach was crushed by the dumbells. There was no end to her pain.
They beat her with golf clubs and iron bars, and even kept her in the fridge for hours. They made several holes in her body with needles. The vicious boys even burned their genitals, clitoris and eyelids with a cigarette lighter. One of her nipples was twisted with pliers. With so many injuries all over her body, Junko couldn’t even stand the pain. She had to crawl downstairs to use the bathroom.
After about twenty days of her kidnapping and torture, Junko somehow managed to dial an emergency number to call the police. However, she was caught by the guys cutting off the call by taking the phone from her before Junko could even speak. After this, she was severely punished by burning her legs. They poured lighter fuel over her legs and burned them with fire. She couldn’t even walk after that.
She couldn’t breathe because of a blood clot in her nose. She was bleeding internally and as such she couldn’t even digest the food causing her to vomit. But the inhuman boys even beat her for making the carpet dirty by vomiting.
Junko Furuta – Death
Junko even stopped urinating after about 30 days. Her eardrums were also damaged. Unable to take this pain anymore, Junko finally begged to kill her and shut everything down. Finally, the torturers mutilated her on the 44th day of her abduction.
The boys did not even spare the mutilated body and beat with an iron dumbbell. Later they poured lighter fluid on her face, abdomen, legs and face and burned them with fire. This last torture lasted about two hours. And later that day ie, on January 4, 1989, Junko eventually died.
The saddest thing about this Junko Furuta story is that the brutal killers were given neither the death penalty nor even life imprisonment as they were all under 18. Miyano was sentenced to 20 years in prison, while the other three boys were only seven. All four boys have since been released from prison.
It has been over three decades since this unfortunate incident that resulted in Junko Furuta’s death. People still think of the innocent girl and keep her in their prayers.

It is really sad to know that very little justice has been done to the brutal murder of Junko Furuta. The innocent girl has to endure excruciating pain because she has done nothing, literally nothing.
