A 63-year-old taxi driver was found bleeding from his neck and upper body at around 1.30 a.m. Monday in his taxi parked not far from Niigata Airport, police said.
Tsugio Abe, who usually waited for customers outside JR Niigata station’s south exit, did not report back to the company’s office after his shift ended at 11 p.m. Sunday night. One of his colleagues located his taxi through their GPS system and found the car parked on the side of a road about a kilometer from the airport. Abe was in the driver’s seat covered in blood, and police were called to the scene but he was already dead, police said.
Police said Abe’s bag which contained cash and other items was missing.© Wire reports
