    Default Tokyo's 'oldest man' had been dead for 30 years

    Oh the humanity...

    He was thought to be the oldest man in Tokyo - but when officials went to congratulate Sogen Kato on his 111th birthday, they uncovered mummified skeletal remains lying in his bed.

    Oh, my apologies then. I was just browsing recent updates on Google News and this caught my eye.

    Strange, you'd think somebody noticed that earlier.
    I claimed Leavanny!
    I claimed Albert Wesker!
    I claimed Ghirahim!

    I wish I could come up with some crazy theory about his ghost trying to return to the body in order to ensure nobody steals that record for years to come, but my imagination's too boring.

    Oh geez. o.e I'm just wondering why would the family keep his death a secret for such a long time.

    IMO, his retirement pension was the reason.

    He didn't have any family or friends that thought to check on him in that amount of time? :(

    Still, heh.

    No wonder that guy was so reclusive...

    Still a shocker...Guinness Book of World Records, eat your heart out.

    But Japan is still the country of the living dead...I mean with the oldest populace...

    The Feds wouldn't have this happen...

    IN AMERICA!

    I made jokes!

    Seriously, couldn't they smell decomposing flesh from a mile away?
