Man backs out of suicide pact with woman after she killed herself

A Japanese man who entered a suicide pact with a woman reneged on his vow after she killed herself.

Suicide pact

A 20-year-old Japanese woman will not live to know how she was betrayed by her 41-year-old lover identified as Akinori Yoneda, who backed out of their planned joint suicide pact after she killed herself, the police in that country say.

According to the report which adds that Yoneda has been arrested on a charge of 'assisted suicide', the suspect met the woman on a website geared for people who are contemplating suicide and the two struck a relationship with the aim of committing joint suicide.

But on the day they agreed to carry out the act, Yoneda pretended to be in on it but shortly after the woman 'successfully' killed herself, Yoneda walked away, leaving her dead body at the scene.

Yoneda was identified as a suspect when investigators found him on the contacts list in the victim's phone and he confessed to the police that he had actually taken the woman to the forest where they were to jointly kill themselves.

He admitted to making a suicide pact with the woman, but he backed out after she killed herself.

It was also alleged that the suspect had supplied the woman with a helium tank, which she inhaled.
