Police on Tuesday were questioning the three flatmates on what happened.

And the police strongly suspect he died of suicide or natural causes.

Flatmates?? Room mates?? Why?? Most Japanese never live with others like this, it all sounds very strange.

Police arrested the victim's roommates, two men and a woman for the murder. They are all unemployed . The victim was 18 years old. Arrested were Shibata Masayoshi (24), Kitamura Kohei (22) and Takahashi Ran (20).

A man in his 20's dying of natural causes? 0_o

possible suicide eh? jeez, I'd have to rule that out too, that's almost unheard of here.

@Elbuda Mexicano: The article doesn't specify their nationalities, they might not be Japanese.

Poor lad, got picked on, beaten up and ultimately killed by his "friends".

I've heard the policy is not to open a homicide investigation unless it's fairly obvious who the perpetrator is. This is the reason the statistics for crimes solved look so good. Man hours too would be spent more efficiently I suppose.
