A man has been found dead in his apartment with a plastic bag over his head in an apparent suicide, police said Friday. The man, who has been identified as Fumihiro Nishimura, 48, was found by a policeman on Thursday morning, a few days after his death, according to a TV Asahi report.
A note lying near the body said, "My mother died, so I laid her to rest in the cupboard. I'm going to be by my mother's side." In the cupboard, police found the remains of a woman who appeared to havehad died several years earlier. They believe the remains to be those of the man's mother Sadako Nishimura, 98. Police are treating the incident as a suicide.© Japan Today
