The decaying bodies of two elderly people were found in their house in Nagoya on Saturday, police said Sunday.

Police said the remains, believed to be a man and his wife who lived in the house, were found at around 2:15 p.m. Saturday by relatives who hadn’t heard from them for a long time, Kyodo News reported. 

Police said there were no external signs of injury on the two bodies which were found lying on the floor in a tatami mat room. Police said an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

The house showed no signs of having been broken into, police added.

Don’t they have neighbours?

Most “neighbours” don’t care if you live or die so this is hardly surprising.

@krustytheclown - I agree with you mate

Not sure why your comment is getting down voted

I don't see any offense in this and i don't think the statement is malicious

It doesn't necessarily mean the "neighbors" are bad people..

Who wants to be involved in the "aftermath" of initiating a report?

I'm sure so, but I reckon that like some people (no offence intended), they just went about their own businesses.

"A long time" is very vague. Are we talking weeks, or months?

Sorry, I think this is quite common around the world.

It just goes to show you how disconnected people are now a days

Japan, the land of 125 million strangers. Sad!
