Poor diver. When I go diving I always have fear about finding one of those NK ghost boats.

The girl and man met through a social networking site and exchanged views about suicide

As soon as I read the headline I said to myself, "I'll bet they met on a suicide website." I thought the government was cracking down on these websites after that nutter killed nine people he met through a suicide website. Where I come from they have websites to help talk you out of suicide, not to discuss ways of doing it.

What a tragic case.

The poor deadman was on police wanted list. And what if diver didn't find sunken car !

There's been a few older man younger woman suicides in Japan in the last few years - in this case they were both in their prime years makes you wonder what goes through their minds.

@Andrew Crisp - makes you wonder what goes through their minds

No doubt, there is very little going through their minds.

With todays headlines it looks like being a 17 year old girl in Japan is seriously dangerous!

How sad. The poor parents, not knowing for near a year, and to have this the end result.

Very sad. Reminds me of 'Don't Fear the Reaper' by Blue Oyster Cult. That song addresses the issue of romantic suicide pacts, doesn't condone or glorify it.

Quote: "Their bodies were found Thursday in the car sunken about 20 meters away from a pier in Nagasaki city. The police put the man on a wanted list on suspicion of kidnapping her."

What does this mean? Why would they put him on a list if he was already dead? Or is it a grammar problem?

Is it wanting to say "The police had put him on a...?" or something else?
