  • Couple leaves radioactive mystery in wake of suicide

    NIIGATA -- Mystery was mixed with tragedy here on Nov. 29 with the discovery of a couple who had hanged themselves as well as a can holding radioactive materials in the husband's car.

    The wife and husband, both in their 60s, were found hanged to death by a passer-by in a local forest at around 9:30 a.m. Police found what appears to be a will in the husband's car, along with a large can containing sand and seven small bottles of the radioactive element thorium. The will also made references to thorium.
