CHIBA (TR) – Chiba Prefectural Police have launched an investigation following the discovery of a pair of corpses in a residence in Togane City, reports TV Asahi (Sept. 24).

At approximately 9:00 a.m. on September 23, police received a tip from a neighbor of the residence, located in the Miuramyo area, that “the occupants have not been seen recently.”

Police subsequently entered the premises and found two bodies lying atop futons in a room. The heads of both corpses had turned skeletal.

The residence is occupied by a man, who recently entered the hospital for treatment, and his two older brothers. Police suspect that the bodies are those of the man’s siblings.

Police are now working to confirm the identity of the bodies and determine the causes of death.
