A 54-year-old taxi driver was found stabbed to death beside his taxi in a park in Inami, Hyogo Prefecture, early Monday morning. Police said an undetermined amount of money had been stolen from the taxi.
Saburo Nagata was found dead beside his taxi by a passerby around 5:35 a.m. Police said the driver had suffered stab wounds to his neck. Bloodstains were also found on the back seat.
The taxi meter showed about 10,000 yen and police believe the driver was stabbed inside the taxi after an argument, possibly over the fare, and then got out of the taxi before he died.© Japan Today
