Sounds strange, but I do hope it was not suicide. RIP and I feel so sorry for the daughter!

"Burned to death"?! That's horrible. Most fire victims die of smoke inhalation.

The people are killing themselves. More thefts and robberies are taking place daily and increasingly being committed by the elderly. What has the Abe Government done to their pride and their desolation as a result of his economic policies that are becoming clearer and clearer by the day to have failed miserably. A personla gamble on his part but a great loss for its cotozens except the rich and wealthy and their politicians and Yakuza..
