People in general do not get stabbed to death for no good reason, me thinks this poor Suzuki san royally pissed some other worker and now he is dead, RIP??

Obviously cut off and then rudely gestured the wrong person.

No mention of wounds to the arms or legs, which suggests he didn't have a chance to defend himself. I reckon he was attacked by someone who was already inside the cab, so probably someone he knew.
