IBARAKI (TR) – A man plunged to his death from his tenth-floor residence in Ushiku City after police visited on Wednesday night, reports TV Asahi (June 28).

At around 10:50 p.m., the man, 28, was found collapsed on the premises of the building, located in the Ushikucho area. He was confirmed dead at the scene, according to the Ushiku Police Station.

The man was the subject of an investigation. Just prior to the discovery, officers visited the building and rang the man’s room via the intercom. However, the officers were not granted access.
