20 Jul – News broke over the weekend that popular Japanese actor Haruma Miura was found dead at his home in Tokyo.
NHK reported that the late actor was found by his manager, who went to check on him after he failed to show up for work.
Haruma was found hanging by the neck and a will, also reported by other media as a suicide note, was discovered in his room.
