Police, alerted by viewers of the Ustream web page, found him dead in his apartment in the city of Sendai, says the Yomiuri newspaper, quoted by the Telegraph.
“Employed by a bank, the man had been suspended from his duties since August”, says the story, going on:
“The man, who lived alone, started a live stream on Sunday evening, repeating his plans to commit suicide.”
Some people tried to talk him out of going through with his suicide, but “others encouraged him to kill himself”, says the post.
“Apparently believing they were watching a hoax, some viewers even suggested that he hurry up and get it over with.”
Last year, 32,845 Japanese people killed themselves “and the rate is likely to remain above the 30,000 threshold for the 13th straight year when the statistics for 2010 are released”, the Telegraph adds.
