Daughter arrested for allegedly keeping dead mom in apartment freezer


A Japanese woman has been arrested after a cleaner found her mother’s body in the freezer of her Tokyo apartment.

The body had been bent to the fit in the freezer, police said.

Yumi Yoshino, now 48, said she hid the body 10 years ago after coming home and finding her 60-year-old mother dead because she “didn’t want to move out” of their home, local media reported.

There were no visible wounds on the frozen body, police said.

Officials couldn’t determine the time and cause of the woman’s death.

The body was reportedly discovered after Yoshino had been evicted from the apartment due to missing rent payments. Yoshino was arrested in a hotel in the city of Chiba, near Tokyo, on Friday.
