Crime Dec. 05, 2015
A 60-year-old man and his son, in his 40s, were found dead in their apartment in Ayase, Kanagawa Prefecture, on Friday, police said. The man’s younger son, in his 30s, was also found in a coma. All three had suffered knife wounds to the stomach.
Fuji TV reported that police received a call at around 12:15 a.m. Friday, in which the male caller said, “I’ve killed my father and older brother and I’m going to kill myself, too.”
When police arrived at the scene, they found the apartment locked. After gaining entry into the apartment, they found the older man and his oldest son already dead. The second son was still alive and taken to hospital where he remains in a coma.
Police believe the younger son may have stabbed his father and older brother and then himself. A bloodied knife was found beside the younger brother, police said.
