An article written on The Japan Times about this murder case being sent to the prosecutors office just appeared and after reading the article, a comment had been posted below just a few minutes ago which I found interesting because it is the same thing I suspected of Gregory Joseph Gumo. Don’t let Gumo’s LinkedIn self-promotional write-up fool anyone. Most of the self-promoting bios written on LinkedIn are utter bullshit. Here is the comment:
Some details not in this article: he [Gregory Gumo] was caught on surveillance camera with her [Mariko Aiktaya] at the scene of the crime. They caught up with him and stopped him at Haneda Airport Departures, where he was suspected of trying to flee to America.
Married with three kids, it is suspected that he met her on the internet and was trying to conceal an affair with her.
Bouncing around Singapore, Bangkok, and Japan with various non-permanent English teaching/proofreading jobs, he publicly claimed to be a entrepreneur/angel investor/IT consultant/social media expert.
Look at Gumo’s image at LinkedIn carefully. If you are using LinkedIn to promote yourself and your business, would this be an appropriate picture to use? A selfie? He’s even holding the iPhone?! Read the comment above and the use of the expression “trying to conceal an affair with her.” Affair? Gumo was trying to get sex for nothing without paying for the consequences. I know Japanese women extremely well. They are not to be toyed with. They are extremely tenacious and take relationships very seriously. My bet is Mariko Akitaya was more than this narcissistic moron could handle. Japanese women are a handful and from the looks of Mariko’s images, I would say she stood up to my observations about Japanese women. Image how she felt finding out she had been just seduced by a part time English teacher and narcissist self-promoting “businessman”? Gumo claims he is “social media expert“, but if you go to his twitter page, he has only 212 he was following and 164 followers on twitter. That’s it for a “social media expert” being on twitter since 2009? That is some expert.
This Gregory Gumo is an absolute imbecile. If my suspicions are correct, he seduces Mariko Akitaya online and then meets her for illicit sex telling her he is some important successful businessman and tech guru. She probably wanted to believe Gumo’s seduction which men almost invariably do when they over inflate their own capabilities and experiences with women especially with Japanese women. Then when Mariko Akitaya discovered Gumo was married with children, that must have jeopardized Gumo’s stability in Japan with his wife who apparently had a home and financial resources from working at Fujitsu. My bet is that was all financed by Gumo’s Japanese wife if she worked at Fujitsu when I think they met in Singapore. I suspect Gumo’s guilt was partially to blame for his premeditated murder of Mariko Akitaya. If this was per-meditated murder, this Gumo character doesn’t take down as much personal information about himself as he can? Or does he leave all of his personal information up to prevent drawing attention to himself. Then he is filmed on a surveillance camera with Mariko Akitaya and there is no getting out of that proof that he was with her the night she died. If anyone asks me this Gumo character is definitely fuuuuked.
Can’t help but wonder if this is the selfie Gumo took of himself when he met Mariko Akitaya for the first time online? Is this the behavior of a 41 year-old man with a Japanese wife and three children? My God, what is Gumo’s wife going through right now? Is there anyone around to help her and her children through this?
