3 bodies found in apartment in Aichi Prefecture; 2 hanging, one in closet


Three people were found dead Sunday in an apartment in Tokai City, Aichi Prefecture.

The three are believed to be an elderly man, his wife and their adult son who lived with them, NHK reported

According to police, the couple's eldest daughter and her husband came to visit the family at around 8:40 a.m. Sunday. The door was locked and mail had piled up in the mail box. Noticing a foul odor coming from the apartment, they called police.

When police and firefighters arrived, they entered the apartment and discovered the bodies of a man and a woman hanging in one room, while another man was found wrapped in a cloth and placed inside a closet.

Police said that although the bodies had begun to decompose, there were no signs of external injuries on the bodies.

When the "shame" of asking for help is greater than the "shame" of murder/suicide, this is what you get.

RIP, What a way to go.

Too many cold hearted stoned faced people in charge of the welfare of the elderly.

Another poor written article. So what happened. Did the parents kill their son and then hang, or maybe a triple murder??

What are the leads from this case??

Once again a case of elderly not being supported by the govt. More important they spend money on new military weapons and donate money to wars they have nothing to do with. Japan used to be a place of having respect for the elderly who worked hard for 40 plus years and paid taxes to the govt. Now the govt does not have any respect for them.
