The dead body of a woman was found in a plastic bag on the bank of the Yodo River in Takatsuki, Osaka Prefecture, on Thursday afternoon, police said Friday. Osaka prefectural police are trying to identify the woman, who was about 163 centimeters tall and had brown hair.
The body had no prominent wounds or dishevelment of clothes but had marks that indicate she was strangled. An autopsy will be performed to determine how she died, police said.
A 60-year-old woman found the bag while walking her dog around 5 p.m. Thursday and alerted the police. The woman said that she first saw the bag around 7:30 a.m. that day.
The victim is believed to have been transported to where she was found from another location because no blood traces were found nearby, police said.© News reports
