He initially abandoned the body in a local cemetery, only to keep it in his closet in fear someone might find it.Anomie TheoryMizayakis life was difficult ever since birth. His appearance made him a target for bullying at school. This in turn reflected on his grades and more importantly his social life. His sisters at home saw him as an abomination and disgusting. His parents tended to disregard him due to their focus on work. Only grandpa stood by his side throughout his life. However, once his most important figure passed away, Mizayaki was set even further into depression. These negative social interactions (or lack of) played a significant part in the murders.
