Murder, suicide attempt leaves boy dead, mother in hospital

Date Posted: 2003-09-06

A hotel clerk found a woman and her son in their hotel bed in a pool of blood in Naha City earlier this week. According to Naha Police, the 33-year-old woman and her 10-year-old had checked into a hotel room the day before. When they failed to show up at checkout time, the hotel front desk sent a clerk to investigate. She found the door of the room locked and the safety chain on.

When no one in the room answered her calls, the staff entered the room through an emergency exit. They found the woman and her son lying in the bed in a pool of blood. When the ambulance arrived the boy was already dead. The woman survived, with both wrists slashed and a knife wound on her neck, and remains in a hospital.

Investigators say the woman had left her home with her son the previous day after a fight with her husband. They suspect that she had first killed her son and then attempted to kill herself. The police plan to question the mother after she recovers sufficiently from her injuries.
