A man and a woman in their 30s were found dead in their apartment in Tokyo's Minato Ward on Sunday night, in what police believe was an apparent double suicide.
The apartment's real estate agent contacted police after not receiving rent arrears and being unable to contact the couple for a week. Police entered the apartment and found the pair lying on the bed where they had apparently died several days earlier.
According to police, there were no signs of a struggle, and no obvious, visible injuries on their bodies. The door was locked from the inside, leading police to suspect a case of double suicide. It is believed that the apartment was rented in the name of the deceased woman. Police have not released the names of the couple.© Compiled from news reports
