The incident happened in 2015, a man named Sumio Suenaga (66 years old) who lived with the children at a house in Kasugai town, Aichi prefecture (Japan) disappeared without a trace. At that time, the family thought that he would return soon, but after a year passed, there was no information about him, so the family decided to notify the authorities.
After 5 years, there was no news until one day the family decided to clean the house to change feng shui. His sister Sumio was the one who cleaned her brother’s room for his use.
Since no one has lived in for the past 5 years, there is a lot of cleaning to do. In the process of cleaning up everything, the 69-year-old sister accidentally discovered a set of clothesless remains hidden in a wooden cabinet. The woman immediately reported the incident to the local police.
The functional force quickly arrived at the scene and confirmed that the body found was human remains. Although there are no results to determine the sex and age, investigators believe that this is a high possibility that it is Mr. Sumio, according to SoraNews24.
It is known that all three of Mr. Sumio’s brothers are at retirement age and although it is not known whether they are the remains of the older brother or not, this is even more strange when they have lived in the same house with their brother for many years years without realizing it.
Sora News24 said that Mr. Sumio’s house is just an ordinary house like many other houses in Japan, the area is not too big. Therefore, the appearance of the remains cannot be undetected.
The matter became even more confusing when the police received a missing report and the person reported that “Mr. Sumio has not been home for the past 1 year”. This proves that the family certainly knew that Mr. Sumio had gone out.
However, most of the people in the house are retired people, so they have a lot of free time, so it is difficult to determine their specific schedule. Presumably, the people in the house assumed that if he didn’t see his brother at home, that meant he was out, but weren’t really sure if his brother really left.
The police are currently conducting verification and further investigation into the incident.
