NHK has reported that the police authorities are suspecting the incident as a possible suicide as a result of the initial investigation on the scene.
The band was formed in 2010 and became widely known with songs it released in 2012. Tsuno was one of the composers of the song "Round & Laundry" which was used in the 3rd episode of Shinichiro Watanabe's "Carole & Tuesday" TV anime series.
Tsuno's death follows other recent cases of Japanese celebrities who committed suicide or apparently did so earlier this year, including actress Yuko Takeuchi, actress Sei Ashina, actor Haruma Miura, and actress Hana Kimura.
