OSAKA (TR) – Osaka Prefectural Police have launched an investigation after the discovery of two corpses inside a burned-out vehicle in Moriguchi City on Tuesday, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Oct. 8).
At just past 7:30 a.m., a female neighbor to a parking lot in the Takasecho area tipped off emergency services about a “vehicle on fire.”
After a fire crew extinguished the blaze about 30 minutes later, the corpses were found in the driver’s and passenger seats of the green four-door vehicle.

In addition to locating the owner of the vehicle, police are seeking the cause of the fire.
