Tourists found hanged on remote Okinawa island

Date Posted: 2005-06-04

A deserted warehouse in a remote Okinawa Prefecture island is the setting of a triple hanging.

Two women and a man were found hanging, side by side, inside the warehouse on Kitadaito Island, about 360 kilometers east of Naha. The trio was found following a telephone tip on Sunday.

Police say the three are thought to be tourists, as nobody recognized them as residents. One resident reportedly saw a man and two women walking in the direction of the warehouse earlier in the weekend. All three are believed to have been in mid-20ís to 30ís.

Police say the three were wearing lightweight clothing consistent with what tourists would wear on the island. They are now checking aviation records to see if the three went to Kitadaito by plane. Police indicate there were no signs of injuries to the bodies, and suggest the trio may have taken their own lives in a group suicide.
