60-year-old cartoonist Kazuki Takahashi may have died in a diving accident, a member of the coast guard in the southern Japanese city of Nago told AFP on Thursday. Takahashi’s body was found off the coast of Okinawa Prefecture on Wednesday morning after the Coast Guard received a call for help.

Takahashi was reportedly wearing a T-shirt, a diving mask with a snorkel and fins when he was found. An investigation should now clarify the cause of death. At present, neither an accident nor a crime are excluded, the Coast Guard said.
