Too many details missing like: forced entry, signs of burglary, struggle, etc.

Infidelity reason. One side or both. Which is not a surprising story here in Japan.

I suggest Mr Husband, in the bedroom, with a necktie.

Wasn't there another 50 something woman found dead yesterday? Seems to be a pattern in the 50 plus club.

Credit check. What are they doing with their money? check for large deductions, he may be on a shink or trying to get to a plane if the husband did it. But I would like to believe that its a revenge story and the husband has gone after the killer Ex-CIA style.

The fact that the police mentioned her husband has "gone missing"strongly implies they suspect her husband. He'll probably give himself up in a little while - plead temporary insanity, regret his actions, get off with a few years in the clink and probation for a "crime of passion". Probably yet another case of a nagging wife who just didn't know when to shut up. Although I don't condone family homicide - I also don't condone aberrant stupidity, although I'm beginning to suspect this may be a DNA imposed behavior in certain women.
