February 12, 2008

TOKYO — Three people were found dead at a home in Tokyo’s Adachi Ward on Monday afternoon, while a 15-year-old boy found at the scene with his hands cut off at the wrist and the back of his head caved in has fallen into a coma after being rushed to a hospital, police said.
The three are believed to be Toru Sasaki, 52, his wife Kazuko, 49, and Sasaki’s mother Tokuko, 84, while the boy is Sasaki’s son, who is a first-year student in high school, police said.

All were found bleeding, and a bloodstained ax was discovered in the house, according to police.

The boy was quoted as telling the police before he lost consciousness, “My father did it to me,” while a note with blood, believed to have been written by Sasaki, was found in the house, which suggested he would commit murder-suicide.
