criminal charges filed (different japanese pension fraud story... but does involve mummified remains)

The complaint, filed by the Japan Mutual Aid Association of Public School Teachers, has prompted the Tokyo police to investigate if the family of Sogen Kato, who would be 111 if still alive, illegally received the pension money payable to his late wife, a former teacher, by giving the appearance that he was still alive, the sources said.

After retreating to his room around 30 years ago, Kato refused to have meals and water, and what appeared to be his mummified remains were found in July at his home in Tokyo’s Adachi Ward. He appeared to have died some time around the end of 1978, according to the sources.
