Roommate Arrested After San Jose Care Facility Strangling

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A 24-year-old man who was killed at a San Jose residential care facility Tuesday night following a confrontation with a roommate earlier that day appears to have been strangled, police said.

Police have arrested Alex Nakayama, 28, in connection with the murder, which occurred around 7:30 p.m. at a care facility in a converted home located in the 1800 block of St. Andrews Place, Officer Jose Garcia said.

Officers arrived to find the victim unconscious, and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police believe there might have been some sort of confrontation or dispute between the men earlier in the day that led to the murder.

The motive remains under investigation.

Nakayama was booked into Santa Clara County Jail.

    I was Alex Nakayama’s friend. The weekend before the killing, Alex called me up and asked me if I would like to go on a fishing trip to a sponcered fish-a-phon at Stevens Creek Resivrar. I turned him down. I then talked to him again over the phone on the 25th about going to the movies. He wanted to see a new movie that was comeing out on friday. I said yes, but it would have to be on monday or tuesday because I am buisy on friday. I then heared about this on wednesday, the 27th. I was shocked. I would like to say that I was his friend. I had no idea he was capable of this.
