Tokiko Goto, 55, mother of former Morning Musume member Maki Goto, 24, died on Saturday night after falling out of a third-floor window of her Edogawa Ward home, police confirmed Monday.
Tokiko came home at about 10:30 p.m. after going out drinking and chatted briefly with Maki before heading up to the third floor. Tokiko fell out of the window of her son's bedroom - who is currently in prison for a robbery and assault committed in September 2007 - about half an hour later, falling some seven meters to the ground below.
Maki heard a thud outside and found her mother lying on the road, bleeding from her head. Tokiko was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead just after 1 a.m. Sunday morning. No note was found but police have not ruled out suicide.
