Abe was mortally wounded while speaking at a campaign rally in Nara prefecture on July 8. His killer, 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami, shot Abe in the back twice with a makeshift gun. In the second shot, the politician was wounded in the neck and chest, and it was fatal. Abe’s body was cremated on 12 July.

The killer said that his mother entered the religious organization Sun Myung Moon Unification Church and soon went bankrupt after making large donations to that organization. Investments of about 100 million yen (currently about $740,000, then close to one million dollars) came from the sale of land and real estate. According to Yamagami, this destroyed his family. Yamagami allegedly believed that Abe was affiliated with the Church, as he sent a welcome message to a Church-friendly unification organization last year. Also, Abe’s grandfather stated that former Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi helped attract the Unification Church from abroad to Japan, but there is no evidence for this.
