Police said the as-yet unidentified woman checked into the hotel in Minami-chisotemachi with a man just after 12 p.m. on Saturday. The man checked out of the Hotel Quattro alone at 6 p.m., after someone paid the bill automatically from the room, police said.
A hotel employee checked the 4th-floor room about 6:30 p.m. and found the body of the woman, who was fully clothed, on a sofa. She was taken to hospital and pronounced dead shortly after. The cause of death was strangulation, police said. There were no personal effects or any means of identification on the victim, police said.© News reports
