Does this mean that, the reason those guys in caps and jackets were after Rika was cause the spies they sent in all died and they killed Rika on the assumption that she was the murderer?

Or was it another group?
As of episode 7 of the second series it is made clear that their only interest in Rika is professional. She's a valuable experimental subject for their bosses, not someone they care about. But if Irie is the guy doing the experiments his death can trigger the termination of the program. At which point, they have no further use for Rika and quite apart from anything else, she's the only native of the village who knows about them.
