Alcohol leads to tragedy for Okinawa City father

Date Posted: 2004-10-22

An Okinawa City construction worker is in jail, charged with murdering his own baby.

Police say the man, the father of two other children, became a “very nasty person” when he became drunk. October 18th, Hideki Idemi, 34, was drunk and killed his 10-month-old baby.

Neighbors were shocked, but said Ikemi “became nasty and while when he drinks. Since last year we had been calling police to his apartment many times.” Police say they often had to cool him down, but didn’t notice then that he was beating his children.

The baby was always crying, neighbors said, and the man would get angry and tell the child to “stop crying. Shut up.” They say that’s when he began beating the child.

The situation came to a head over the weekend, when visitors began playing with the child, making the father jealous. Neighbors say he asked “why is the baby smiling at them. Why does the baby cry when I play?” When the guest went home, the man began beating the child, refusing his wife’s demands he stop. He told her to “shut up, the baby doesn’t like me.” He held the baby’s head face down on its stomach.

The baby’s mother found the child dead in the morning. Doctors at the hospital confirmed many injuries to the baby, both old and new. The man’s year-old son and three-year-old daughter are okay.
