Police in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, have arrested a 54-year-old unemployed man on suspicion of abandoning the body of his 85-year-old mother in the woods last month.

According to police, Seiji Koizumi has admitted to leaving the body of his mother Hatsue about 30 meters from a highway in Tsukuba on Sept 21, Fuji TV reported. Koizumi and his mother lived in Tokai, about 80 kilometers from the spot where her body was found.

Police said an autopsy showed that Hatsue had sustained a bone fracture in her throat. There were no external signs of injury on the body.

Koizumi was quoted by police as saying his mother died while they were out for a drive and that he panicked and left her body in the bushes.

Yeah. Because when someone that is old dies we just leave their body in the bushes. Don't worry about calling anyone? Another case of a anti-social, I don't want to work, I will just collect my mommy's money situation. I have noticed all "Unemployed" seem to abondon body's, so they can keep getting paid. Sounds like he broke her neck and dumped her body.

Yes, that’s right! Dying from a fractured bone in one’s throat is a common natural occurrence, NOT! If the cops cannot force a confession from this goon, the case will not be reported as a murder, thus keeping Japan’s murder statistics low (and fudged).

A broken bone around the throat is a sign of strangulation.

There are so many cases like this, today.  Very frightening how society is declining because families do not want and or know how to deal with their deadbeat kids.  One of my student's older brother is in high school, and this boy's mother complains everyday how her son does not want to study and or even wants to finish high school and there are only months left.   I can see if he makes it through high school he will just sit in his house while his parents go out and work and support this kid's sorry arse.  I told her she needed to stand up to her son and or she and her husband would be one of these statistics when they are grey and could no longer give him this little cushy life.
