Police in Tokyo said Monday that two sisters have been found dead in their condominium in Shinagawa Ward in an apparent murder-suicide.
According to police, the bodies were found at around 11:20 a.m. on Sunday, Sankei Shimbun reported. Residents in the building notified police after the sisters failed to show up at a mochi-making event.
The bodies were identified as Fumiko Saito, 46, and her sister Kazuko, 43. They were lying face up in the living room. Both bodies had knife wounds.
Police said there was a note, dated Dec 11, saying, "I did an unforgivable thing to my younger sister. We are going to be with our parents."
Police believe that Fumiko stabbed Kazuko to death and then committed suicide. Kazuko suffered from a developmental disorder.© Japan Today
