An Offer He Couldn't Refuse

The news of the tech stock trading scandal in Japan is all over the place, and I'm sure this news item will not go unnoticed:
Naha police said Noguchi, 38, vice president of H.S. Securities Co, apparently slit his arms and wrists at a Naha hotel. No suicide note was found but a blood-stained knife was found nearby him, the police said. H.S. Securities was among the companies the investigators searched in investigations into alleged fraudulent practices by Livedoor group companies.
With the fine, marbled presence of the Yakuza in Japan, this story reads like Abu Nidal's suicide via multiple 'gun shot wounds to the head'.
