Funny how that works. You step on your sister's chest and stomach and you wonder why she isn't moving??

Even so, it was quite unlikely that there was bad blood between both of them when they were little children. Let alone stomp her. Very deeply sad event. RIP.

I'd say that was pretty obvious. I'm interested to know what percentage of murders in Japan are committed by siblings, parents or children. These kinds of family murders seem to make up the majority of murders in Japan. Just in the last month there was a couple of kids killing their parent and a couple of parents killing their kids and now, a sibling murder. It seems that, Japan is a pretty safe country until you go home.

Well that would make Japan the MOST UNSAFE and MOST DANGEROUS country in the world...

It's a wonder how any of them survive childhood!!

The senseless killings, Again! These people are friggin' warped. And some say the senseless killings only happen in America . . . . where there are guns.

Yeah. It is. I regularly saw violence against children and heard it in my apartment building. It's ubiquitous.
