A 29-year-old man, his 33-year-old wife and their 5-year-old son were found hanging from a tree in Nagano City in the early hours of Tuesday morning, police said.
A man passing by discovered the bodies hanging from a tree in the mountains of Togakushitoyoka just after midnight, and called police. They were found fully dressed hanging close together from the same branch, in what is being treated as a murder-suicide, police said. No note was found at the scene.
The trio lived together with the man’s parents in the town of Kiso and had returned to his wife’s hometown in Nagano City on Monday morning, but left shortly after. The man’s parents notified police Monday night that they were missing when they didn’t return home.© News reports
