FUKUSHIMA (TR) – Fukushima Prefectural Police launched a murder investigation after a Filipino woman was found dead inside her residence in Koriyama City on Sunday, reports Fuji News Network (July 19).
At just past 11:00 a.m., an employee for the management company for the unit entered and found the body of Ruby Tanaka, a company employee.
According to police, Tanaka had vomited blood. The results of an autopsy revealed that she likely died due to suffocation caused by strangulation.
