Yoshito Usui’s Body Found?

The remains of a male were found near Usui’s last known location.


 
 
If you remember a couple days ago Shin-chan’s creator had gone missing, reportedly he was on a hiking trip when he disappeared. Well now police had found the remains of a man in the mountains of Gunma Prefecture, dressed in clothing that resemble those he would wear normally. The person who found them stated that "It didn't seem like a place where people can get to. He probably fell there from above." with fractures throughout his body and laying face down in the dirt.

Usui had told his family that he was going hiking in the Gunma Prefecture, and had also expressed his intent to climb the Arafune mountain that exists in between Nagano and Gunma Prefectures. So the possibility of this actually being him is high, though without proper identification it can’t be confirmed. Sad days, he just wanted to go hiking and now look what happened!

according to ANN it has officially been confirmed, my heart goes out to his family and friends, look like Shin Chan will be an unfinished classic if he has not finished the managa/
