Police in Tsuyama, Okayama Prefecture, and the parents of Yukiko Tsutsushio, a 9-year-old girl who was murdered in 2004, sought help from the public this week to come forward with any information that might help them solve the cold case.
Police have been handing out leaflets outside train stations and shopping malls, hoping for a new lead, TBS reported.
The child was stabbed to death after she returned home from school just after 3 p.m. on Sept 3, 2004. Her parents were out at the time.
Since the crime, more than 42,000 police officers have worked on the case but so far have found no suspects.
