Irate daughter stabs her father to death

Date Posted: 2008-12-31

The police emergency desk got the call shortly after midnight on Christmas pleading “Help. My sister stabbed our father.”

Okinawa Prefecture Police and a Tomishiro ambulance were dispatched to the apartment complex, where a man was found laying on the floor, bleeding from stab wounds in the stomach. Paramedics said the man was not breathing, and transported him to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police investigators talked to the man’s 18-year old daughter, asking if she’d stabbed her father. She admitted “Yes, I did, because my father was always made at me when I came back home late.” The young girl told officers “he had a knife in his hand, and I was frightened why father had a knife.” She then explained to police “I got so mad at him and decided if he was going to kill me, I could kill him too. It was just taking the course of nature.”

Investigators say that the quarrel started when the man’s two daughters came home from a Christmas visit to their mother who has divorced from their father and lives in another neighborhood.

Neighbors interviewed in TV newscasts who know the family described the daughter a good natured kid but with a tendency to be somewhat hyper active and emotional.

The investigation continues, as officers dig deeper to learn if there had been previous incidents or trouble between the man and his daughter.
