A woman in her 30s jumped to her death from the roof of her apartment building in Tokyo after apparently killing her 7-month-old son, police said Tuesday.
According to police, the woman's husband returned home from work at around 8 p.m. Monday and found the body of his wife lying beside the car park of their apartment complex in Kokubunji. TV Asahi reported that the man called police and then discovered the body of his 7-month-old son lying on a futon in their second-floor apartment.
Police said that both mother and son were taken to hospital but confirmed dead on arrival.
Police believe the mother killed the child and then went up to the roof of the building and jumped to her death.© Japan Today
