A man and a woman were found dead inside a parked BMW on Tuesday night in New Taipei City. The man was nude from the waist down while the woman’s face was lying on top of his lap.
Police broke into the locked car after receiving a call about two people sitting motionless inside. After looking over the scene, they have come to the reasonable conclusion that the couple were likely engaging in oral sex when they died, Taiwan News reports.
The cause of death has yet to be determined. However, police believe that the couple probably died from carbon monoxide poisoning as exhaust fumes built up inside the tightly-sealed vehicle. Officers found no signs of suicide or foul play.
The two have been identified as a 49-year-old man surnamed Song and a 49-year-old woman surnamed Chen. A China Times report speculates that the pair may have been engaging in an extramarital affair; however, police have not yet disclosed further information about the case.
Chen’s sister told police that Chen left home at 8 p.m. on Monday night and didn’t turn up to work the next day. After being notified about Chen’s absence, the woman went to the police to try and locate her sister.
Well, at least they died happy. Like one couple in Wuhan who died in each other’s arms in 2013 after falling out of their apartment window together while having sex.
