19 Comments

A 38-year-old self-employed man and his two elementary school daughters were found dead in their Hakusan City home Thursday morning. Police believe the man took his own life and that of his daughters by running a small power generator in his bedroom, causing the three to die of carbon monoxide inhalation.

Police said the man’s wife, who works a night shift, found the trio unconscious when she came home at around 7 a.m. She called for an ambulance and they were rushed to hospital, but were pronounced dead shortly after.

Police said the second floor of the home reeked of exhaust fumes, and that none of the three had any external injuries, nor were there any signs of an intrusion into the home.

Unfortunately these sad events are losing their shock value and the victims are slowly becoming only statistics...

if you read the article carefully, it states that he ran the generator in his bedroom. what are the odds that that man had no intention of taking his daughters along with him? but the fact he didn't have them leave the house before offing himself does imply intent or carelessness.

In Japan, what age are elementary children? If they're say about 10 I'd imagine that they might have been woken by a generator running and at that age have taken some persuading that it was normal, nothing to worry about and they should go back to sleep.

My heart goes out to their mother too. Can't imagine coming home from work to discover that scene.

I wonder if this family belonged to a Nembutsu sect of buddhism, they seem to believe that suicide is fine, and you will be reborn in a nicer place in the western part of our universe, horrible! RIP little girls!

The biggest question, that seems to always cause the effect would be what was going on between the Wife and Husband. I bet you will find a unhappily marriage and something was said that sparked this incident. (Committment does matter-and everyone is sensitive when their heart<3 is involued).

I find this tragic but its a sign to on fagil relationships and people are.

Maybe JT should stop posting these types of things.

Maybe it's time for the JN Government to formally start teaching common sense and the difference between, right and wrong!

Maybe that's what this country needs.

If you are adult and want to take you're own life, FINE DO IT, But for god's sake, don't make your kids helpless victims!

Wow, it's being called a "Murder Suicide", usually in Japan these things are just reported as mutual suicides, no matter how young the poor kids are. Rest in peace little kids. Rot in hell child killer.

What an absolute coward. Selfish, weak murderous coward.(assuming he is indeed responsible) The only good part was his method, as the poor kids just fell asleep and didn't wake up. That poor woman's life is ruined. I hope the fool had some kind of insurance that pays out in case of suicide, but I doubt it.

The body count builds! What a sick bastard to take the lives of his kids as well! One can only imagine how the mother feels. What's the bet his motive was to get back at his wife?

Suicides are common place all over the world and Japan is not the world leader in suicides, however, Japan is the world leader in family murder-suicides. That's something to be proud of, isn't it?

Maybe JT should stop posting these types of things. The more we see it might make someone think its common to do knowing its in the news everyday. Kind of bad news if you ask me and makes Japan look like a joke which it is by the way. So question I always ask, who will it be tomorrow?
