An elderly couple were found tied up Thursday morning in their Nagoya home, the woman dead and her husband severely dehydrated, police said.

They believe someone broke into the house several days ago and tied up Tokuichi, 81, and Yaeko Nishigaki, 80, with tape, leaving them with nothing to eat or drink. The man is weak and bruised, but will recover.

The man’s brother found the couple when he stopped by for a visit.
