On April 8, 1986, Okada was found with a slashed wrist in her gas-filled Tokyo apartment, crouching in a closet and crying. Two hours later, Okada jumped to her death from the seven-story Sun Music Agency building. The reason for the suicide is still unknown. Her death resulted in many copycat suicides in Japan, soon christened with the neologism "Yukiko Syndrome"
