3 found dead in suspected murder-suicide in Kawasaki home


Police said Saturday that three people were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in their apartment in Kawasaki.

Police found the bodies at about 11:50 p.m. Friday after being alerted by a worried relative who had not heard from the family for a while, TBS reported. Police arrived to find Miyoko Okiyama, 70, and her son Takayuki, 44, dead from hanging, and Okiyama’s daughter Chiemi, 42, lying on the bed dead.

Police said there were no external injuries on Chiemi who had been bed-ridden due to a long illness. A suicide note was found, police said, without revealing any further details.

    Have a feeling more of these things tend to happen at this time of year and believe New Years has varying implications and effects depending on one's situation. Extending my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to those involved and close ones. Truly sad.

    Rest in Peace! Its that type of sad case again... and again. Encurage people to seek help and encurage people to offer help and not blame. Nothing more important than life, cherish the life of loved ones, friends, neighbours and enimies... Afterall there are no real enimy but the enimy within.
