So they were both equally mad. To think yourself possessed by a snake and being bitten to death by your own father would have landed both in a ward. Now, instead, one's dead and the other's in prison. What stupid outcome...

Too much cheap sake make you do some crazy stuff.

Who's crazier, the son or the dad? Sounds a bit fishy... the son being mentally unstable, probably from things his father did to him or made him do. Abuse, neglect, etc.

I wonder, quite seriously, if the son wasn't a little bit obsessed with the Harry Potter films and books which led him to flip like this....

And that made his father, who didn't see Harry Potter, bite him and headbutt him to death? Give Harry Potter a break, will you? Or at least blame it on some mongoose film his Dad saw, since he was evidently the aggressor here.

Best exchange of the week.

So did he get the snake out of his son's mind?

Weird.

Very strange, even by Japan standards. Perhaps bath salts were involved?

I wonder if the father had attacked the son (or others) in the past. This sounds way too violent to just happen out of the blue. He must be very disturbed to do such a thing.

There is a need to establish a Phyco Help Line for Japan... thought it was called "Suicide Hotline"

This has to be the weirdest news story on JT for me. I'm still trying to imagine this.

I think the real question is if this man would attempt to headbutt and bite a real snake.

This headline should be:

Crazy man kills crazy son in crazy way.

Isn't there a snake cult or something in Japan? Seem to recall something about it...

Resident Evil!

" Couldn´t a 23 year old defend himself from such a crazy father ? At least run away? "

Not if he is convinced he can only slither...

Ya, is this some year-of-the-snake-joke?

It sounds to me like with all the biting and writhing going on, the son took after the father.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

this is funny...53 biting 24 yr old to death...cannibalism, maybe bathsalts...maybe

I dont comprehend this article?

Harry Potter?

@pajamas

Exactly. This is way too weird for the father's explanation. I'm getting disturbing ideas about bizarre incestuous role-play gone horribly wrong....

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Well, it IS the year of the snake you know! Seriously though...someone had to die? Needless!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

So....he bit his son to death? Are you sure the father wasn't the one pretending to be the snake? Why the hell would he bite him to death....lol

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Weird story, but did the son really die from bites and a head butt? I suppose the head butt could have done it, but there was something else at play, such as drugs??? Anyone else feel it doesn't add up?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Bear in mind that we only seem to have the fathers word for it that the boy was writhing around on the floor acting like a snake. But whatever the reason, it sure beats the usual "he stole the remote from me" excuses.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Hmmm.... Okay, weird (if tragic) story. This has to be one of the strangest cases or murder JT has reported.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

"Couldn´t a 23 year old defend himself from such a crazy father ? At least run away?" Can't run away, he is a snake ...

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

were they both smoking bath salts?

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Must have been an unusual family, to say the least!

What the $%&@ is this all about!?!?!? I have read pretty weird stories in my life, but this one takes the cake! He did what to who because of what? Seriously?

How could he punch back?? Snakes don't have arms

I didn't think the article would be able to live up to that headline, but...holy hot hell.

What?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

biting him? geez, maybe a slight wack on the head for pretending to be a snake. Some weirdos out there.

Wow.... even among the usual crazy murder stories, this one stands out.

Really? This is going on Reddit.
