Police in Oita City on Monday arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of murder after he dumped two tons of building materials from a forklift onto a 53-year-old colleague at a storage yard of a construction company.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 9 a.m. on Saturday. Police said the suspect, Hidemitsu Suehiro, was operating a forklift at the time and was carrying about two tons of wall building material which he dropped on the victim, Takashi Fujita. He then put the materials back on the forklift and left the site.

Fujita sustained severe head injuries. A passerby saw Fujita and called 119. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said there had been previous trouble between the two men and that Suehiro has admitted to the charge.

Shouldn't have killed another human being in the first place. Just sayin.

There have been many people over the years I have felt I would cheerfully like to kill. But like the vast majority of people we do not act on the thought generated by a durst of rage. We have what is called self control and a sense of morality/right and wrong.

There really is no excuse for what sounds on the limited facts given like a premeditated murder.

At 5he very least he has failed to sort out his problem and created a whole shed load of grief for him self, his family and as Japan still has the barbaric death penalty, killed him self as well.

"about two tons of wall building material which he dropped on the victim"

Quintessential crazy Japanese crime and back story. Incredible as fiction, but perfectly plausible in Nihon.

I find it interesting how caustic the comments are when a man died. If this was a grandpa killing his infirmed wife or a mother killing her kid there would tens of comments expressing their outrage. Sad state of affairs with misguided beliefs amongst the weebos here.

Either he's honourable enough to admit his crime, or he's too thick to claim he somehow accidentally nudged the wrong lever.
