A couple was found dead inside a car in Taiwan, apparently killed while engaging in oral sex by inhaling the vehicle’s exhaust fumes.
Reports indicate that the 49-year-old man, identified by his surname Song, and a 49-year-old woman surnamed Chen both died of air poisoning while parked inside their car in New Taipei.
According to Taiwan News (via Shanghaiist), the lifeless bodies of the couple were discovered inside a BMW on Tuesday night. The man was found half-naked with his pants down with the woman’s face lying on top of his lap, indicating that the couple was likely engaging in oral sex when they died.
An anonymous tip to the local authorities reportedly led to the discovery of the couple. The police had to break the door open to retrieve the bodies.
While the exact cause of death is yet to be determined, authorities believe that the couple most likely died from carbon monoxide poisoning resulting from the accumulated exhaust fumes inside the car. Both possibilities of suicide or foul play have been ruled out in the investigation due to lack of any other evidence.
Speculations on the pair possibly having an extramarital affair have circulated on social media, but no further details have been confirmed by the police about the case.
