A teenager in Takatsuki, Osaka Prefecture, stabbed three members of his family, killing one, before taking his own life, police said Tuesday.
According to police, 21-year-old Arisa Kurota was stabbed and killed at her home at around 10:15 p.m. on Monday night. Her grandparents were also stabbed and seriously injured in the attack, Sankei Shimbun reported.
While in hospital, the 74-year-old grandmother reportedly told officers that their attacker was her grandson. Police searched for the 16-year-old and found the body of a boy fitting his description in a storehouse early Tuesday morning. He had apparently hanged himself, police said.© Japan Today
