17 Comments

Chiba prefectural police said Monday that a female high school student and an adult male have been found dead inside an apartment in Matsudo City.

According to police reports, the dead man sent a friend a message on Saturday, which contained not only the apartment’s address but also a cryptic note saying, “It’s going to end here,” Kyodo News reported.

The man’s friend, who received the message, contacted the police at around 10:35 p.m. on Saturday and asked them to check if he was safe. When police arrived at the apartment at 11:40 p.m., they found the girl and the man dead in the bathroom. Both bodies were fully clothed.

Police did not reveal how the two died.

The front door was unlocked, and there were no signs that someone had broken into the residence.

Lets not make judgement until we actually know what happened.

The bathrooms are very small. I could not lie down on my bathroom floor or in the bath.

Apparently Matsudo is affectionately known as 'Mad City'. Alas, can't say much until further details, but with a text like that, doesn't sound good.

You must have been there to know that. Perhaps contact the media and give them the full story to avoid judgemental clowns from guessing.

Oh yeah, that town and neighboring Kashiwa and Noda are hotbed of strange crimes. Chiba city residents usually just shrug and say “a Matsudo happened again.”

When you say “male adult” the legal age of adulthood in Japan is 18 now. The article is poor and needs clarification. Eg the approximate age of the adult. And you can be 18 and still be at high school. Poor reporting me thinks.

I think we were there putting two and two together and we ended up with 5 when a women claimed to be stabbed at some concert and it turned out she did it herself. Hope you don’t ever do jury service. We need more facts that are NOT Printed here. An adult can be 18 19 or 20, and a high school student can still be 18. We need the adults age before making a guilty as charged judgement.

I can lay down on my ofuro room floor, and almost lay down in the tub. They're not all as small as yours.

Yes I am serious....I can think of at least 10 different situations this could have been. The person who only thinks of ONE without any facts is an idiot.

Exactly the reason we should not make judgement.

I do not know what "2 and 2" you imagine. We know no details and there are several possible scenarios. For example, instead of a sex thing (like you hint at) it could have been a suicide pact. Happened before. We just do not know.
