Police said Monday they believe an 8-year-old boy stabbed to death in his Nagoya home may have been killed by the Philippine relative with whom he shared an apartment. According to police, the boy’s father, Yoshihiko Kachi, 54, visited his son’s apartment at around 11:50 a.m. to find the door locked and chained.

Inside the apartment, the child, identified as Hitoshi Kachi, and his Philippine relative, 26, were found bleeding on the floor. Police said the child had already died of stab wounds sustained to his head and back. The woman was unconscious and bleeding from cuts to her wrists. There were no signs of forced entry into the apartment. A blood-stained fruit knife was found inside the apartment.

According to police, the boy and his father’s wife’s cousin shared the apartment. Kachi told police he visited the pair regularly from the nearby apartment block where he lived with his 29-year-old wife. Police believe the woman stabbed the boy to death before attempting to take her own life.
