He was found unconscious and got rushed to a nearby hospital where he died from his stab wounds. Initially held on suspicion of attempted murder, the 27-year-old Aria Saito had since confessed to the fatal stabbing of 35-year-old Master Sgt. Nicholas Vollweiler.

Nicholas allegedly wanted to break up with her and the ‘break up talk got complicated.’ Saito also told police she planned to kill herself afterward.

Airman Vollweiler worked as a K-9 handler and instructor. Col. Otis Jones, 374th Airlift Wing Commander from the Air Force released a statement wherein he said:

“He will be dearly missed by our community. His family, friends, fellow defenders, and all of the Yokota community are in our prayers during this heartbreaking time.”


New information has become available in a similar case where airman Tech. Sgt. Joshua L. Kidd got shot and killed outside his house not far from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana on September 26.

The police department issued a news release after the arrest of 17-year-old Jareona Crosby and an unnamed 15-year on Monday that said:

“Over the course of the last week, detectives developed information and collected evidence linking Crosby and the juvenile to the murder. Crosby and the juvenile also got charged on separate warrants, each for ten counts of simple burglary (of a vehicle) and one count of theft of a firearm.”


According to some neighbors, the killing may have happened as a result of Joshua confronting burglars over car theft outside his home. Deputy commander Lt. Col. Steven Shepan commented:

“Tech. Sgt. Joshua Kidd was an integral member of our team. We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our own. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, and co-workers during this especially difficult time.”


A new development took place in another case as well, and an arrest has finally got made. Police arrested the 35-year-old Megan Hargan in West Virginia for the murders of her 63-year-old mother, Pamela, and younger sister Helen, aged 23.

Megan fatally shot them in their $1.3 million home in McLean, Virginia on July 14, 2017. Following Megan’s arrest, she got indicted on two counts of first-degree murder, another two counts for the use of a firearm in the commission of a crime got added as well.


According to Pamela’s sister, Tammy North, Megan got jealous of the fact that her mother bought her sister, Helen a home. Fairfax Country Police Major, Ed O’Carroll referred to the tragic crime as ‘domestic violence at it's worst.’
