Ako Kawada, a well known announcer in Japan committed suicide in her car on the 26th by inhaling the fumes from burning charcoal. Lately she had apparently been writing some negative things on her official blog showing signs of depression. She was found in the morning in her white Mercedes-Benz.
What will it take for Japan to start really taking a look inside and figuring out what’s going on? Why are people so willing to just give up and die lately?
Here’s a link to an in depth article (in Japanese) on Sanspo.com.
“Former TBS Announcer Commits Suicide in her Car on a Road in Minato Ward”
Another sad story.
