Police said Tuesday that the bodies of an 88-year-old woman and her 65-year-old son were found in their temporary housing unit in Niiza, Saitama Prefecture, on Monday night. The pair had been dead for at least two months, police said.
According to police, the owner of the house had not heard from the occupants since last June. Police visited the house at about 7:30 p.m. Monday and found the two bodies covered with blankets, TBS reported.
Police said there were no external injuries on the bodies. A charcoal grill was beside the bodies and police believe the two fell asleep and died from carbon monoxide poisoning.© Japan Today
