Man arrested over death of 65-year-old father in Fukuoka

5 Comments

Police in Fukuoka said Monday they have arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of killing his 65-year-old father at his home.

Police said Shigeru Hasuyama, a dispatch worker, who lived elsewhere, is accused of stabbing his father Akihiro several times in the chest with a knife between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Kyodo News reported.

Hasuyama’s mother, who had been out, returned home just after 1:15 p.m. and called 110 after finding her husband covered in blood. The victim was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said Haseyama, who was arrested Sunday, has admitted stabbing his father and quoted him as saying they hadn’t been getting along for some time.

Oh my word! He stabbed his father for four whole hours according to this report. How strong his father must have been to survive getting stabbed for 240 minutes. Police forensics will surely be perplexed when they investigate this. Punish the son to the full extent of Japanese law. I think it is 25 years. Apparently lives aren't worth much here compared with civilized nations.

I'll say. This story seems all too familiar. Seems we ought to have a parentacide hotline in this country.

This sentence can be interpreted a couple of ways. Marc took one way; the other being the stabbing took place sometime while the mother/wife was not at home which was from 9:00 to 1:00.

Which do you think JapanToday meant? Which do you think a reasonable reader would believe?

a dispatch worker, 

Koizumi's legacy: companies sitting on mountains of cash preying on dispatch workers who struggle to make ends meet.
