According to police, the man found that the front door was locked. After letting himself in, he found his female acquaintance lying unconscious on the floor bleeding from her left wrist and abdomen.
An emergency medical service team arrived at the scene to take the woman to hospital.They found the woman's son, Hideta Katatsuki, lying face-down in a neighboring room, having apparently been stabbed to death, TBS reported.
The woman was taken to hospital for treatment, but doctors say that she has yet to regain consciousness. Police believe the woman took her son's life before attempting to take her own.© Japan Today
