8 Comments

A 59-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen by an unknown assailant while he was in his hospital bed in Kamagaya, Chiba Prefecture, at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday night, police said. The victim was transferred to another hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to Chiba prefectural police, about 20 minutes after the man's death, his 33-year-old son was found dead on the street around a kilometer away from the hospital, having apparently jumped from the top of a nearby building. The son had been seen visiting his father earlier in the night. Police believe he committed suicide but have not said whether they think the son might have killed his father.

The victim was transferred to another hospital

Ummm, why??

My guess is they attempted a desperate transfer because the hospital was not equipped enough to handle his injuries.

I guess it's too hard for the police to reason that far...

May be the unknown assailant stabbed the father, followed the son and pushed him off the roof!

Maybe if the son called for emergency services first before he jumped off the building it might have helped the cops figure this one out.

Dead man tell no tales. It's going to take a professional CSI team to find out the truth.

Well, if you're going to be stabbed, a hospital is a good place, except this hospital, which apparently isn't equipped to treat stab wounds.
