(DAILY MAIL) The crazed knifeman who hacked 19 people to death at a care home in Japan because he wanted to ‘get rid of the disabled from this world’ is believed to have sent a chilling tweet just minutes after the attack.

Satoshi Uematsu, 26, broke into the centre by smashing a window with a hammer, killing 19 people and seriously injuring 26 people as they slept, in what has been deemed the country’s worst mass murder since World War II.
He went into the Tsukui Yamayuri En (Tsukui Lily Garden) facility in Sagamihara, outside of Tokyo, brandishing a knife at around 2.10am and police were called at 2.30am local time.

At 2.50am a picture was published by a Twitter account, named by Japanese media as belonging to Uematsu, showing a man with blond hair, wearing a suit, grinning alongside a message in Japanese which reads: ‘May there be peace in the world’.
