It’s Too Tough, Too Tiresome, the Father Murdered His Twenty-One Year-Old Son with Cerebral Palsy Then Turned Himself In

A sad case of mercy killing here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

He’d strangled his son in the car, and started wailing, as he’d held onto his son’s dead body, the family said, that the deceased would rely on the family for everything, eating, bathing, “he’d behaved like a young child, but he has the strength of a grown man, that nobody in the family can manage to pull on him.”

The tragedy of a father, strangling his own son to death happened in the city of Taipei!  He’s adult son had been diagnosed with cerebral palsy since he was born, and, it was suspected, that because of the burdens from taking care of him became too heavy, yesterday, he’d taken his son out, and parked the car by the side of the road, and strangled his own son to death, called the police, turned himself in, as the police rushed to the scene, they saw him, howling, as he held onto his son’s dead body, the police charged him with murder.

He stated, that his son was in enormous pain, after he’d parked the car, he’d struck up a conversation with him, said, “everybody’s having it hard”, “We’re all very tired”, then stated to his son, “I’m going to kill you”, to which, the son replied, “okay!”, then, he’d strangled his own son to death; the police didn’t quite believe his statements, and whether or not he’d gotten his son’s permissions to murder him, will be looked into.

“I killed my son!”, yesterday at around three in the afternoon, the forty-one-year-old He, after choking his twenty-one year-old son to death, called the police, as the police rushed to the scene, he was howling in the backseat, holding on, to his son’s dead body, he’d refused to get out of the car, told the officers, “My son’s asleep!”, the patrol officers consoled him, that they will take good care of the matter, and then, he complied, in going with them to the subprecinct, and before he left, he’d told the officers, “Don’t disturb him!”

Based off of understanding, the deceased was diagnosed with cerebral palsy since birth, along with multiple complications, diagnosed with epilepsy, and was mentally retarded, he has a middle school aged younger brother, his father works as an ironsmith, his mother, a housewife, with the parents living in Linkou, Taoyuan.

Yesterday afternoon at about one, He’s father drove to Shihlin, to pick up his son, told his parents, that he was, “taking him to see his mom”, then, drove to the Songshan Airport, parked at Fu-Yuan Street, then, he’d killed his own son, as the police arrived on the scene, the son was already dead, with choking marks on his neck.

The family told the police, that when the child was born, he had his umbilical cord, wrapped around his neck, the doctors saved his life, he couldn’t walk at the age of three, and the family took him to get diagnosed, and the doctor diagnosed him with cerebral palsy, he’d managed to get his high school diploma, and acted like a young child, needed his wheelchair to get around, and, relied on his families for his daily living needs like showers, feeding, and had banged his head against the walls because he was feeling so much pain.

The family members pointed out, that the deceased would often throw temper tantrums, wanted to get out of his wheelchair, “he was too strong, that his family members couldn’t hold him down.”, the pressures from the caretaking was great, the wheelchair cost the family $30,000N.T.s, a few days ago, when his mother came to visit, they got into an altercation, “his mother nagged him”, but recently, they’d not heard any complaints from the parents, they don’t know why he’d taken his own son’s life.

Based off of understanding, the deceased lived in a three-generation family, three years ago, the parents moved to Linkou, and had visited him regularly, once every week.  The grandparents of the deceased didn’t know about his death until the police came to tell them, they’d cried until they’d become limp, the grandfather said, that he’d raised his grandson from a child, “he said he was taking my grandson to visit his mom, how could it have ended this way?”

So, the father just couldn’t deal with seeing his own son suffer, with his conditions, and so, he’d killed his son, out of mercy, or, could it be, that the demands of being his sole-caretaker is just too great, that he’d finally cracked, nobody knows, but, there’s ethics that needed to be DISSECTED here, as well as moral responsibilities that needed to be discussed…
