Fukuoka prefectural police said Sunday that a 26-year-old man who was found dead along a coastal road on Friday was strangled to death.

According to police, the body of Shunichi Yamamoto, whose address and occupation are unknown, was found at around 9:05 a.m. on Friday, Kyodo News reported. The corpse was lying on its side, with the upper body protruding from a tent on the sandy shore in Nishi Ward. The victim was fully dressed and his wallet had not been removed.

Police said Yamamoto had a cord around his neck. An autopsy revealed the cause of death as suffocation due to neck compression. Police said the time of death was between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Friday.

The place where the body was found is about 700 meters east of Imajuku Station on the JR Chikuhi Line.

Homeless people don't set up tents on the beach, as a rule.

The biggest homeless "city" I ever saw in Japan, something like 5000 people, was beside the beach in Japan. Technically there was a wall between the city and the beach, but nevertheless.

Not on this beach, which is a bit outside the city in a suburban setting. That said, people gravitate towards shelter from the elements, and beaches only provide exposure.

Only 26 years old. Quite a young man. Poor man. Was it suicide? Or Murder? Or an unfortunate accident?
