Police on Thursday arrested a 66-year-old man Thursday after the body of his elderly mother was found abandoned in her home in Suwa City, Nagano Prefecture.

Police investigations revealed that the woman died some time last August, and after discovering the body in their shared home, the son moved out and left the body for six months before concerned neighbors notified authorities. The man was arrested at his place of employment. Police have not yet said how the woman died.

Gosh you would have thought the neighbours would have done something long before 6 months of not seeing the old bird.

This guy either A- Did it, or B- went into shock when he found her. My money is possibly on A. Maybe she was hogging the remo-con.

If the man is 66 yrs old- his mother couldn't possibly be not "elderly"...

Beside this creepy child and parent relation. Anyone can tell me how the law about dead-body abandon really say? I've read a lot news that people arrested for abandoning the dead-body but not for murder. If I see dead body in the street but I did nothing about it could they prosecute me as well?

How do they know he didn't move out before she died?

What's the bet he did her in and left her there for six months? He's probably been collecting her pension as well. That's what kids are for.

So sad that a child (66-year-old one at that) could leave their mother there for so long knowing that she was dead. What a sad world!!!

Bizarre and creepy. Perhaps this man is mentally ill? Or he accidentally hit her on the head with a frying pan and then took off?

He could have not known, but I am sure she was dead.

I'm pretty sure she would have started to smell after a week, especially since it looks like she kicked it during the hot summer months. Didn't anyone notice?

This is a story practically straight out of "Abandon the Old in Tokyo". Poor old lady. Any word on why the neighbors waited six months before checking into the lady's welfare?

I bet she was knifed or strangled by her son.

@Norcalmike <---- i dont know about that, im not trying to bash you or anything

ive kinda noticed these stories tend to be written to sound more bizarre than they really are

is it that different from the kid in middle america who stabbed and smashed his friends head in then left her body under his bead for a week. while he slept in it?

or that guy from texas who raped and murdered numerous boys and just buried the bodies under his house for years?

innocent until proven guilty i say. this guy could have been a total mommas boy. had some mental problems. saw his mom dead and tried to pretend it didnt happen by ignoring the situation.

i dont know the area, but 6 months does seem way too long. me and my neighbors live practically on top of each other, so if you dont take out your garbage you notice
