The story of suicides, from the Front Page Sections, the cause being how the individuals can no longer handle the demands of the realities that they’re faced with, translated…
The forty-nine year old eldest son had cerebral palsy, was taken care of by his seventy-five year-old aging mother, the forty-six year old youngest would go outdoors when he’s hungry, they’d sold their storefront property just three years ago, and now, they’re thinking of selling the mansion they’re living in now.
Yesterday, a mansion in the Dali District of Taichung had the scent of dead corpse flowing from it, the police and fire department were called, they’d broken in, and found the seventy-five year-old elderly woman, Wu, along with her two sons, Hong, dead, in their second floor bedrooms, in the rooms, the firefighters found burnt charcoal on barbeque racks, and they’d suspected, that they’d been dead for over three days; the police suspected that it was the household economics that’s caused the three of them to commit suicide.
The police investigated, that the Hongs had sold their storefront property, just three years back, with the price of fifteen million dollars, that it was paid in cash, recently, there came the sounds of how the Hongs are pressured by the debts of three million dollars N.T., they’d asked to sell the property, the mansion they’re currently living in right now, but, they’d put the house on the market for six months, without any offers or prospect buyers at all, in March, they’d pulled it off the markets, and, whether or not they’d committed suicide because of their pressing debts, or was it because they couldn’t sell their property, to pay up the debts that they owed, it’s still in need of investigations.
At four in the afternoon, the police were notified, that there was a rancid odor coming from a mansion on Hsin-Fang Road of Dali District, the fire department arrived on scene, broke the door open, and found Wu, in her second floor bedroom, on her side, by the lounge chair by her own bed, Wu’s forty-nine year-old and forty-six year-old sons, on the bed, face up, the three of their bodies are already blackened and bloated, and the coroners believed, that they’d been dead, for over three days already.
The police said, that the bedroom door was sealed shut with towels, and there were barbeque stands set up at the scene, there was no outside forces that showed signs of a break in, nor were there suicide notes, as to whether or not the three of them had committed suicide, assisted one another in their own deaths, or, was it, caused by something from the outside, it’s yet to be clarified.
The police found, that Wu’s eldest son has cerebral palsy, and Wu took care of him by the day, and she’d gone to the nearby parks, to do her exercise dances; the youngest son was unemployed, and drawn in by the internet, the residents nearby told, that the youngest would only show his face outside when he was hungry, and would keep his eyes glued to the computers at home normally.
The police said, Hong’s father who’s a public office employee died a decade ago, and the family still gets half of the father’s retirement pension payments, Hong’s mother (Wu) receives money from the elderly assistance, the second son died by leaping off a building to commit suicide; the family had sold their storefront three years ago, and is with cash income, they seemed well off; six months ago, the youngest son wanted to sell the mansion they’re living in right now, but couldn’t agree on the price with a prospect buyer, so the deal broke off.
The realtor said, that six months ago, the Hongs asked him to help sell the property they’re staying at currently, the asking price was $1.88 million N.T.s, and there was a buyer who’d offered them $1.5 million N.T.s and was turned down, because the family was very rigid on the price that they’re asking, so, the deal never went through, and, this March, the realtor told them, that he couldn’t manage to sell their property for them.
So, this family is probably, pressed by money, but, there may be OTHER underlying reasons for their suicide, but, there’s no way that anybody can know that now, they’re all dead!
