What were the motivations of this murder suicide? Did father murder his daughter against her will or the opposite

She...hung her father and then strangled herself to death?

So....it's just an onigiri except harder to eat, twice as expensive and pretending to be eco friendly?

Well, it has a cutsey name so I'm sure people will line up for an hour to try it once.

How do you "hint" at murder?

"So, yeah, I may have, you know, can't be 100% certain, but, yeah, might have killed her like".

She had it coming

She had it comin' all along

I didn't do it, but if I'd done

How could you tell me that I was wrong?

Can they do anything about reducing snack packages? Must everything be individually wrapped, in a plastic tray, inside another wrapping, inside a box? It's an awful lot of garbage for six cookies.

I used to work at a school where the local children's home kids attended. I thought they'd mostly be orphans but, no, as you said many had parents who just couldn't care for them.

But the most heart breaking was a girl whose parents got divorced, so she lived with her mom until mom got remarried and punted her off to the father until the father got remarried and punted her off to the children's home. She had younger siblings! Two parents that just couldn't be bothered to care for their kid. And she was a good kid, too! I hope she's doing well.

Square decorative glass stone? Sounds like someone's balcony garden is missing an outdoor light.

Why are you folks wasting time talking to the NHK, even just to tell them to pound sand? Don't even open the door in the first place.

We get an NHK prowling season about twice a year. Sometimes they're pounding on the door three times a day. Couple times they've showed up after 10pm. Then they dissappear, hopefully having rethought their life choices and found employment elsewhere.

I have stop locks on the sliding doors and windows to prevent my cats from sharing the same fate. Why aren't these standard for houses with children?

Posted in: Mother suspected after 9-year-old son fatally stabbed See in context


Tragic. How can a mother do that and why only one of her sons?

Motherhood isn't a magic spell that makes someone a good, sane person.

Likely, she was planning on killing both and the older one escaped before she could.

One must assume she's already gone. But then you hear about people escaping their captors after being locked in basements for years and wonder. Could be she's walking around outside but unable to leave because she's a still captive in her mind.

Poor girl. Poor family.

He kicked a baby?

Mom took him to the doctor nearly 24 hours later. Did she not notice a bruise? Would this injury not leave an obvious mark?

"Their apartment". Lovely, a year old and mom's already moved a new guy in. New boyfriend/girlfriend is practically the middle square of Abused Child Bingo.

Posted in: Woman arrested over fatal stabbing of boyfriend See in context

I could almost buy a "I didn't meant to kill him argument" with a singular stabbing in the heat of the moment, and then realising what you did. Multiple stabbings? Maybe not premediated, but definitely murderous intent.

I knew a guy in college that killed his bother like that. They were having some dumb argument in the kitchen, the brother smacked him across the face breaking his glasses and the guy stabbed him a single time with the fillet knife from the counter. Hit him right in the aorta. Amazing aim, you know, without glasses and all.

He called 911 immediately and stayed on the line doing his best but I believe the brother died before EMTs arrived.

Something tells me this situation is...quite a bit different.

We have a stranger danger drill every few months at my school. Does anyone know how much force I'm legally allowed to use if a crazy person charges us with a knife? 'Cause my first reaction is to hit them hard enough with a chair that they can't get up again soon. I could never forgive myself if anything happened to the kids. My goodness how terrifying.

Posted in: Man arrested for defrauding his 35 girlfriends See in context

Well, he's a garbage person but was what he did illegal? Birthday gifts are given freely. And at 100,000 yen between 35 women it's not like he was emptying their retirement accounts.

Honestly curious, does Japan have laws about fraud in anticipation of marriage? Or is this in the scope of rape by deception?

Posted in: Woman says she left husband’s body at home because she thought it wouldn’t fit into coffin See in context

he died sometime between Feb 27 and March 23.

I know they're probably only basing that on the last time anyone saw him alive and the day his daughter discovered what happened but surely they could narrow it down more than that?

If he died a month ago...my goodness I cannot imagine the state of decomposition. That poor daughter walking into the living room and seeing that.

I still cannot believe she knew something was wrong at dawn and still slept it off another 7+ hours before calling the ambulance. She didn't want a DUI and now two innocent children are gone because of her.

There's also a kamishibai called Uirusu ookami. We have it at work. It's a proper story with the big bad wolf tempting Little Red Riding Hood into not wearing a mask, eating in crowded places, not washing her hands and visiting grandma even though she has a bit of a cough. The kids love it.

Posted in: Daughter left mother's body in freezer for 10 years See in context

Why is it in these cases the people have no end game in mind? This woman had ten years time to, I dunno, dispose of the body slowly or bury it in the woods somewhere. Instead it was left for someone to find in a closet.

I guess true crime shows aren't as popular over here. They have nothing to guide them.
