The Tagruato voicemail message had been updated again:
Thank you for calling Tagruato. All of our lines are currently busy.
If you are calling regarding the Kazui Ichigawa memorial service, all seats have been filled, and registration is now closed.
For all other concerns, please leave a message, and one of our representatives will find you as soon as possible.
It sounds like there is going to be a funeral, but what is with the registration? Was this someone working on the Chuai Station? Does this have anything to do with "the incident" mentioned in the Tagrauto memo?

UPDATE: The funeral is explained in the following article from TidoWave.com:
YOSHIDA MEDICAL RESEARCH MOURNS THE LOSS OF MARINE BIOLOGIST
Tagruato suffered a large loss yesterday when Kazui Ichigawa, 63, and his family were found dead early in the morning.
His body, along with the bodies of his wife, Rie Ichigawa, 55, daughter Norika, 36, and granddaughter Kyoko,10, was discovered in the Daisetsu-San National Park at a popular RV camping area. Early word from the police is that it was a gas explosion in their trailer.
In a statement released to the press, press consultant Aki Ito said, “We are shocked and saddened at the sudden passing of perhaps our finest Marine Biologist. Ichigawa was not only an employee, but also a friend. He died with honor.”
His tragic death comes mere days after he abruptly retired from YMR. When informed of that, Ito replied, “It is a shame and a tragedy- this is a man who always put his family first.”
A close friend and co-worker (who asked to remain anonymous) believes that Ichigawa uncovered a magnificent discovery before he retired. “Unfortunately, his computer and files, even ones he kept in his home safe, are nowhere to be found. Tagruato is currently conducting a search for them.”
Ichigawa is survived by his son-in-law, Toshiro, 39, who was away on business at the time of the accident.
A memorial service will be held at Tagruato Headquarters. For details, contact a Tagruato representative at +81-3-5403-6318.
