The owner of the pension had called the police after making several attempts to open the entrance door, which did not budge.
Police officers discovered the dead bodies upon arrival. They found large plastic bags, an empty gas container and a death note at the scene.
The death note contained the victims’ apologies to their respective families.
Police plan to investigate the case further by talking to the victims’ acquaintances, starting with close family members.
