TOKYO (AP) — A Japanese official says a woman in his town near Tokyo who became world's oldest living female just last month has died at 115.
Koto Okubo died Saturday at a nursing home in Kawasaki City, according to city official Mitsuhiro Kozuka. He said her relatives declined to release the cause of her death and family details.
Born Dec. 24, 1897, Okubo held her title for less than a month following the death of Dina Manfredini of the United States.
