Police in Kyoto have launched a murder investigation after a woman's body was found in a car parked outside her apartment.
According to police, the body of 35-year-old Chiharu Konishi was found by her husband outside their home in Yamashina at around 7:40 p.m. on Tuesday.
Fuji TV reported Thursday that Konishi's husband called the emergency services, reporting that his wife was lying, seemingly unconscious, in the back of her car. Police rushed to the scene and found Konishi, fully dressed, already dead in the locked vehicle, lying face up in the rear seat.
Police say that neither the car keys nor Konishi's cell phone could be found. An autopsy revealed that Konishi was strangled to death on Monday.© Japan Today
