Two bodies discovered beneath floor of Japanese home

KYOTO, Japan, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Police in Japan said two bodies have been discovered wrapped in vinyl beneath the floorboards of a home where three people committed suicide eight years ago.

Kyoto police said the home's new occupant made the discovery along with an exterminator investigating a termite infestation when they pulled up some floorboards Saturday. Police said the bodies, only one of which was immediately able to be identified as a woman in her 40s, had been there for some time.

Police also believe they are related to a mass suicide in 2006 when a man and two women all killed themselves in the home. Investigators suspect the two bodies were killed by the home's occupants before they killed themselves, Japan Today said.

The new owner, who's lived there for five years, told police he had no idea the bodies were hidden.
