'Skeleton family' found in home

04 November 2011, 11:42

 Tokyo -The skeletal remains of three people were found in a house in northern Japan, police said on Friday, amid reports a family suicide could have gone unnoticed for up to a year.

The bodies were discovered in a two-storey house in Sendai after court officials visited the premises as part of a dispute the occupants had with the landlord over rent, Kyodo news reported.

"Three skeletonised bodies" were found on Wednesday in Sendai city, a spokesperson for police in the area told AFP, adding that they remained unidentified.

Kyodo said the house was occupied by a 62-year-old man, his 55-year-old wife and their daughter, 19.

It said police suspected family suicide and autopsies indicated the three had died between six and 12 months ago.
