A 25-year-old woman was found dead in the bathroom of her apartment in Shinagawa Ward early Wednesday morning, police said, adding that her 26-year-old boyfriend, who lived with her, died in an apparent suicide four hours earlier.

According to police investigations, officers found the woman, who has not been named, pending notification to her family, lying on the floor of her bathroom around 3:20 a.m. She had been stabbed in the back. Police had gone there after her boyfriend apparently jumped to his death from the balcony of his parents' apartment in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture late Tuesday night.

Well we don't know why he killed her. Who knows it could have been because she refused to launder his cloths. I mean mommy can't do everything for him his whole life. Sometime there has to be a girl to take over. How dare she refuse.

Hey. Read more carefully. The Boyfriend died before she died. There is something more complex at work here.

If the boyfriend died 4hrs before she died? Who killed her? And what is the connection?

What kind of trouble were they in?

i think he committed suicide before they found her body - not before she died.

Or she stabbed herself in the back to make it LOOK like he killed her!!

tkoind2...No, the article says the police found her at 3:20 am; who knows what time she died. That's up to the coroner to figure out. He could have killed her then went to his parents and jumped off the balcony.

Yeah, I saw the time difference too. It's bad reporting/writing. It should be worded correctly so it is more clear to readers.
