Yamagami had sent the letter apparently from Okayama Prefecture to the recipient’s address in the Chugoku region, western Japan.

In the letter, Yamagami said he “felt bitter” toward Abe, who he described as “one of the most influential sympathizers of the Unification Church in the real world,” but that the former leader “was not his original enemy,” Kyodo News reported.

Shinzo Abe was shot and killed on July 8 when he was delivering a speech during an election campaign rally in Nara.

Yamagami was arrested at the scene. Police found a homemade gun and later sent it to prosecutors on suspicion of murder.
