Police in Japan probing the disappearance of seven people said on Tuesday they had found three badly decomposed bodies in a house and were still looking to see if they would unearth more.
A major operation was under way after two naked female corpses were discovered at the house in Hyogo prefecture in western Japan over the weekend. A third body was pulled out from under the property late Monday.
The bodies are so badly decayed officers have so far been unable to identify them, said a spokesman for Hyogo police.
Police are reportedly probing connections with Miyoko Sumida, a 64-year-old woman who has been indicted for beating to death a 66-year-old woman and dumping her body in a concrete-filled drum last year.
The property, which has been empty for 10 years, was previously home to one of Sumida's relatives. All seven missing people were connected to the suspect in some way, local media reported.
