Japanese chef Miki Nozawa is said to have gotten into a dispute with two diners, aged 36 and 50, over a dish of fried noodles. The diners, displeased with the dish, asked for a full refund and subsequently disappeared from the restaurant without paying for their meal. Later that night, Nozawa, who was highly regarded as a fusion food specialist, encountered the disgruntled diners at a local dancing bar. There, the dispute over the fried noodles escalated and the two diners began to engage Nozawa in a physical altercation. The fight that ensued left the 57-year-old chef with such substantial injuries (including brain damage and internal bleeding), that he was rushed to the intensive care unit of a local hospital. It was there that chef Miki Nozawa passed away this Monday. May 13th.

According to Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt, the senior public prosecutor from the nearby town of Flensburg, the chef's autopsy reports, establishing the exact cause of death, are still not available. The two diners, who are reportedly skilled workers, are suspected of killing the chef. The suspected murderers, who fled the scene of the crime, remain on the loose.
