Popular Japanese actor Haruma Miura, 30, has died in apparent suicide, Saturday, July 18.
Miura was found hanging at his condominium in Tokyo's Minato Ward on the day and was later confirmed dead at a hospital, investigative sources said. Circumstances in the condominium suggest that he committed suicide, according to the Metropolitan Police Department of Tokyo.
Miura's manager visited his home as he did not come to work, and found the actor hanging in a closet, the sources said. An apparent suicide note was left in the condominium.
