Unlikely to be a love triangle so probably about money.

Mr Kipling

why the hell do you need to know exactly what kind of tool he murdered his sister with??? What possible use would that information be to you?

For too many people, New Year becomes a very stressful time. Divorces up, suicides up. This year has been so much more stressful for many.

Compared with other major countries the Japan crime rates remain low and have decreased in recent years.

Talk about "US" you only have to compare gunshot homicides.

Is it possible that people are going crazy without knowing it?

I wander if she was sitting there and constantly complaining about something and then, he snapped and hit her over the head with a spanner or something like that. I have seen women in their 50's constantly complaining...

addition If that is the case, he can claim temporary insanity.

Mr. Kipling,

We are told it may have been a pocket tire pressure guage.

Politik Kills....

Well, a tool could be a 10mm spanner, a monkey wrench, a hammer or as suggested a pocket tire pressure gauge. The effort and malice needed to do serious damage with a pocket gauge would be quite substantial. A hammer or 12mm hex if used correctly, could easily crack a skull.

If I had to choose a tool from my box it would be the old rusty adjustable wrench at the bottom. Just the right weight and size.

I wonder if he was sitting there and constantly complaining about something and she wouldn't put up with his whining crap any more, so he hit her over the head with a spanner or something like that. I have seen countless news reports about men constantly killing women simply for disagreeing with them. I hope he spends a long time in prison where he can complain all he likes to the walls.

What difference does it make what the ssue was? He bludgeoned her to death. Murder by violent action. Put him in the can for life.
