Sad. He must have snapped. I am surprised so many grown men still live with their parents.

As COVID cases increase, so do family murders.

Every day there is a new mother/father/son killing their son/mother/father.

Can we just have a no-questions-asked dropoff box like they do for babies?

"Sorry mom..."

This is a MONSTER, not a man. There is a difference.

The numbers I've seen don't support this theory. Where are you getting your numbers from?

Try again Sir, the numbers are out there. But maybe your source is ...FB?

No, the Japan federal police site. Which, looking again doesn't support the unsupported claim made earlier. So I really have to wonder, what are you looking at?! I need this secret source of information that is more accurate about crime statistics than the Japanese police themselves.
