Strangling seems to be a "popular" method of doing someone in, here in Japan.

A particularly cold and callous method I may add.

How could a father do this to his offspring?

This is weird! Do people really go to the police because of trouble at work and money troubles with friends? Then, her father strangles her because of being pessimistic over her future? I think this whole family was a bit strange to start with.

So let me get this straight, she had a job with some problems and money problems with friends but he was worried about her future so he killed her? Yeah.......ok.....makes sense. He could've suggested for her to change jobs. So sad.
