Must have been an accident caused but ghost. I guess.

Her father, Hisaaki Inagaki, was found unconscious on the floor of his bedroom at around 8:15 p.m. Friday after his daughter called 119 and said he had collapsed.

Police suspect Inagaki shoved her father to the floor as he also had a shoulder injury.

Police quoted her as saying “I didn’t do anything to him.”

What if, her father fell because he became unconscious, hit his shoulder on something while in mid fall and passed out on the floor? This is just how innocent people end up in jail here. There are many different scenarios that could've played out here that could've led to the current situation. But you have a suspect saying she didn't do anything! I'm not saying she is 100% innocent, but some more police work could bring forth the truth!

There's gotta be more this story.

Could have fallen on his shoulder AND hit his head all on his own. Sure - it happens when people are 79.

Sure I can understand "suspicion" but I guess being arrested means she is 99.7% determined to be guilty already.

MORE DETAILS, PLEASE!

For example:

What was doing before the fall?

Was he eating or drinking?

Could he have fallen on his own?

A simple "shove" wouldn't cause much of a shoulder injury.

Now, she's arrested and probably in jail being interrogated as we speak for the next few days while the police force a confession out of her, ahem, I mean "confirm" whether their suspicions can be proven or not. Meanwhile, today is Monday. This woman hasn't shown up to work and after reading that she's in the news and is in jail could lose her job. Why, Japan? People really are guilty until proven innocent and not the opposite, as they say.

When people get old their bones get brittle and any fall will break them. I know I experienced that from my mom having a severe fall. The doctor said if she falls it would be terrible. I think this lady could be telling the truth!
