Hikikomori Baby Butcher Stabs Family of 5 over Net Access


A hikikomori has brutally attempted to murder his entire family of 5, attacking them with a kitchen knife and successfully stabbing to death his father and a 1-year-old baby girl, and seriously wounding the others, after which he burnt down the family home.

The cause of this rampage was the family cancelling his Internet access after he became massively indebted using his father’s credit card.

The incident began one night when the 30-year-old unemployed hikikomori, who lived together with his family in Aichi prefecture as a recluse, found someone had cancelled his Internet access.

He stormed through the house with a flashlight and beat his sleeping 58-year-old mother into wakefulness, demanding to know who had cancelled the contact – his father had apparently terminated his Internet access after he amassed some $30,000 in debt from buying games and other items in online auctions whilst using his father’s credit card.

Enraged, the hikikomori grabbed a knife from the kitchen and began methodically stabbing to death the 5 family members at the home, first returning to his mother’s bed where he stabbed his mother 10 times in the neck and flank, after which he turned on her 1-year-old granddaughter who was sleeping next to her, fatally stabbing her 3 times.

After this he set about the rest of his sleeping family, killing his 58-year-old father with 4 strikes to his neck and thighs, stabbing his 22-year-old younger brother 10 times in the neck and abdomen, and viciously stabbing his brother’s 27-year-old wife, the mother of the slain baby, 17 times in the face and flank. His brother’s injuries were minor, whilst those of his sister-in-law were grave.

Of his victims, only his father and the baby died. Another member of the family, a 24-year-old brother, escaped the massacre as he was away at the time.

After he had finished stabbing his family, he returned to his room, took a lighter and set fire to his futon, with the intent of burning the house to the ground.


Police discovered him nearby, standing in the rain and dripping with the blood of his victims, whilst flames poured from the windows of his burning home. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder on the spot, later elevated to murder.

Witnesses described a scene of carnage outside the burning house, with neighbours frantically trying to save his blood soaked victims.

Reportedly he had lost control on previous occasions, with no less than 9 incidences of domestic disturbance reported to police. His family reported “he’d calm down after police came.”

A neighbour described not having seen him since he graduated from school 15 years ago – “After he graduated those 15 years ago, I never set eyes on him again.”

    Lets look at the family as a whole and not just the one murderous one... we got 2 ppl that own the "house" that are 58. At that age they should be able to still take care of themselves - having that in mind there is a 30 yr old living there, a 22 yr old with a 27 yr old wife and 1 yr old daughter and a 24 yr old (away at the time). I think there was something wrong way before the 30 yr old started stabbing everyone - they all should be living somewhere else >_< well at least by normal standards i guess =P

    in Japan (and other collective cultures), it's not uncommon for people to continue living in their parents' homes after they've matured, even bringing in a spouse and starting a family of their own. Of course, by this point they're usually expected to assist their aging parents instead of leeching off of them.

    To people wondering why the hell didn't his parents take action until it's too damn late:


    One of the factors that contribute to low crime statistics in Japan. Wait, I should be more specific: One of the factors that contribute to low REPORTED crime statistics in Japan. You may ask, "Their neighbours' gotta notice. What's the difference?" By taking action, they'll only get people around them to talk more about their failure of a son.

    Also, though this may be hard to believe, the father didn't report to the authorities because he probably still loves his son. This, and maybe no one in the household anticipated that he'd resort to murder, no matter how violent their son was before.

    You guys might be (Internet)psychologists, but I doubt their parents even know what 'psychology' is. "He's still my son" was probably the only thing in his head, those 15 years.

    Still, I'm not saying it's the right thing to keep shut about having a son that's missing a screw in his head, but we can all try to empathize and understand why things happened the way that did. Best of all, think of this case when you confront something similar, that gives you the choice to do the right thing that may not be the best way, but still is the right thing.

    TL;DR: Keep your bleeding heart sentiments to yourselves and move on, God damn it!

    Best punishment for this hikki is to put a computer with Internet outside his cell. You can look but you cant touch.

    $30,000 in debt they should have put their foot down long before that and made him run pizzas,flip burgers or mow lawns etc.
    Did these people ever even check their credit card to see if it was being used and had strange charges?
    Or at least he should have learned to crack wep/wpa it's not hard and pirated the games also not hard.

    Too little, too late. >_<

    I'm not even gonna get started about Japan's Justice System, or how fucked up it is. We have shit collecting in the court dockets over here in the US too.

    What I will go on about is the absolute fucking stupidity in how nothing was done before this tragedy happened. And now this asshole will likely get 3 square meals a day, exercise, and a warm bed..... while his mother and infant niece share a cold grave marker.

    I don't agree with the death penalty usually... but I'm on the fence this time, I'm telling you. I really am.

    Im surprised he spent so much money in games, if he doesnt cares about killing his whole family over the internet connection i doubt he would care about pirating games or other stuff.

    What was the point of his life anyway? what moved him to wake up every morning?

    No matter how much i think about it, i just cant understand what kind of stuff were in his mind. I understand some serial killers get joy and stuff from killing, so at least they have a reason to do what they do. But this... there is no logic on his way of acting.

    Forced ferret legging with wild ferrets that have been conditioned to find food in the form of a hotdog and two meat balls in the pants of a manikin fitted with a tape recorder that plays back screams?
    Or maybe go with very oversized pants but still tightly fitted at the ankles and waist and shove a wolverine or two in there as they would not need any training.

    a bullet in the head for a deranged beast is appropriate. i don't believe death is ever too nice a punishment. it's easy to see it in hollywood and just repeat it. i wouldn't want to stoop to their level and torture them. it should be the goal of any sane person to dole out justice in a humane fashion. reguardless of circumstances. at least that is how civilized society should function. taking pleasure in another's suffering is a sign of insanity, is it not?

    Hikki doesn't need death punishment. They need a cell with 4 sides of wall and locked with iron bar and totally isolated from other prisoners. They will find death themselves.
