Japan’s oldest isn’t really that old

Japan’s oldest person found missing just days after the second oldest man was found to be dead and mummified.


After 30 years, Japanese officials finally decided to pay the 111-year-old man a visit for being the one of the longest-living people in Japan. But it turned out that he was actually dead 30 years ago, and mummified in his room. His relatives told authorities that the elder had confined himself to his room over 30 years ago in order to become a “living Buddha.”

Now the 113-year-old woman, believed to be the oldest, has disappeared. Officials were told by her 79-year-old daughter that she has not lived in the home she was listed at and her whereabouts are currently unknown..

These were shocking discoveries for the Japanese officials as they had paid around 9.5 million yen to the 111 years old in widower pension fund for the death of his wife 6 years ago.. Some of the funds were withdrawn recently, and police are investigating the family on charges of fraud.
