Police told news agency AFP that Yumi Yoshino was held “on suspicion of abandoning and hiding a female body” found on Wednesday inside the freezer in her apartment.
Yoshino said she hid the body after finding her dead ten years ago because she “didn’t want to move out” of the home she shared with her mother, local media reported citing police.
The mother, thought to be aged around 60 at the time of her death, was named on the lease of the apartment in a municipal housing complex, Kyodo News said.
Yoshino had been forced to leave the apartment in mid-January after missing rent payments, the reports said, and a cleaner discovered the body in a freezer hidden in a closet.
An autopsy could not determine the time and cause of woman’s death, the reports said.
