Missing Chinese sisters died from suffocation
    2017-July-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE two Chinese sisters whose bodies were dumped in woodland in Japan died of suffocation after being strangled, according to a police autopsy report Friday.

It also noted that the color of parts of their skin was unusual, the reason for which remains unknown.

Their bodies of the sisters were discovered Thursday in luggage abandoned in a forest in the Kanagawa Prefecture, according to Kyodo News Agency reports.

Chen Baolan, aged 25, and 22-year-old Chen Baoling worked in restaurants in Yokohama, and reportedly went missing July 6. A friend said they had tried to get in touch with Baolan but received no reply. Later in the day a friend of the younger sister, Baoling, said that she had been absent from work without reason.

Acting on their suspicions, they reported the two missing, and called on the police to check surveillance video.

It’s reported the cameras picked up a man wearing a cap and face mask entering Chen Baolan’s house with a key at around one o’clock in the early morning. He came and went several times. On one occasion a rope he was holding in his arms fell to the ground. He was seen to pick it up and conceal it again.

The younger sister went home at 5 a.m. but never came back out. Five hours later, the man left with a big bag.

It’s understood the police are interviewing a man in his 30s, who was a regular customer at the restaurant where Chen Baolan worked, according to Kyodo News Agency.

The parents of the sisters have requested help from the Chinese Embassy in Japan.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Friday that the Chinese embassy in Japan confirmed Tuesday that two Chinese women had disappeared from Yokohama on July 6. The Chinese embassy launched an emergency mechanism and met with Japanese police, requesting a full scale search for the missing women with progress reports to be given to the Chinese side in a timely fashion, he said.

On Friday, the Chinese embassy in Japan immediately contacted Japanese police after learning that they had found two bodies suspected to be the missing Chinese nationals, Geng said. “We send condolences to the victims, express sincere sympathy to their relatives, and strongly condemn the brutality of the murderer,” he said.

The Chinese embassy in Japan will closely follow the development of the case, and provide assistance for the relatives while they are in Japan, Geng said.
