A man called police to report that he found his father dead in the parking lot of a store.

Police in Tokyo, Japan, began an investigation into the death of 53-year-old Hirofumi Aruka.

According to police, Aruka was found dead in his car that was parked outside a Family Mart convenience store in Itabashi.

Evidence showed that he was beaten to death.

After collecting evidence from the scene, police arrested the man’s wife, 44-year-old Yuka, and her son, 22-year-old Taisei, who was the one who called the police to report that he found his father deceased.
