12 Comments

A woman was found unconscious and covered in blood by police inside an apartment in Osaka City on Tuesday.

According to police, an emergency call came into 119 at around 3:30 a.m., from a man saying that a woman had been stabbed at an apartment in Nishinari Ward, Kyodo News reported. When paramedics arrived at the scene, the woman, who is in her 40s, was found unconscious and her body covered in blood.

Police said she had suffered numerous stab wounds to her face, chest and arms. She remained in a critical condition on Wednesday.

A male acquaintance of the victim was present at the crime scene. He told police he had come to the apartment after receiving a call from another man reporting “a serious problem” occurring at the residence. That caller had disappeared by the time the acquaintance arrived. Surveillance camera footage showed a man hurrying out of the apartment building shortly after the 119 call was made.

Sounds a bit vague or not clear enough. Maybe, it’s more kind of self injuries or suicide attempt in front of the disappeared caller. But who knows…

@Sven,

are you kidding? "numerous stab wounds" to her face, chest and arms and you suggest self-injuries? yes, she just braced it on the floor and threw herself on it as many times as needed to put herself into a critical condition!

@Sven Asai warped logic!!! You posted "Maybe, it’s more kind of self injuries or suicide attempt in front of the disappeared caller. But who knows…" Do you really think someone is going to knife themselves in the face? The alleged caller disappers? Why would they call and disappear, to leave someone in that situation is almost if not a definite sign of guilt!! Lights on but nobody's home!

Flipping heck! Look of stuff going down in the manor the last few days. Murder at Dotombori and this. Saw tons of police near Den Den Town earlier, a fella had been punched in the face and his iPhone stolen.

stay safe everyone.

Hope the victim has a speedy recovery so she can participate in a expeditious resolution to the investigation.

Perhaps you expect too much @Japanoob 9:54am from online media? - (The news is minimal. The revenue is considerable. The ‘commentary’ and reader ‘insights’ are laughable.).

- “Unlikely but ‘maybe’...”

Most likely, there will be little to no followup to this news story in the days ahead.

One guy had the other's number so must be a close friend. I will guess a love triangle. Poor woman.

No , you are having just only no knowledge about the ancient culture and behavior here. Watch any (historical or contemporary criminal) movie and look how they hurt, injure or massacre themselves , Seppuku or some Westerners say falsely Harakiri, you surely know that. Or Karoshi, working till own death, has an own word here. Or read about they make appointments for suicides in the internet, barbecue themselves in taped cars, go into the woods and so much more. You really know very little about the other side of the country, believe me. To the case, I wrote that details are missing, so it is only one probable scenario. She got crazy or hysterical, maybe some alcohol or drugs too, and then she hurt herself wildly stabbing with both hands into all upper body areas and face. Now calm a bit down, guys, your theory is just also as speculative as mine.

Thanks for the further enlightenment, Strangerland. And yes, people with knowledge are of course not completely error-free. I wouldn’t go so far to claim that for me too, but consider me near at. lol
