Elderly woman lies dead at home for week

Date Posted: 2002-05-28

Neighbors discovered the body of a 75-year old woman in her home in Kyohara, Okinawa City, Monday. The police concluded that the woman had died a week earlier. According to investigators, the woman had lived alone in the apartment since 1991 since she moved to Okinawa City from Hiroshima Prefecture. She was an officially recognized victim of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and had been living on welfare payments from Okinawa City.

A city social caseworker had visited her regularly once a month, and her neighbors also stopped by once a while. She did not have any relatives living in Okinawa Prefecture. A salesman living next door became worried as no one seemed to have seen the woman in several days and there was no answer as he called her. The salesman then contacted other neighbors and they entered the house finding the woman dead. They then called the police. According to press reports, this is the third case this year that a person living alone has been found dead days after they passed away.
