Suicides, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
A couple, the Wei’s were found as corpses inside their own residence yesterday in Tainan, their beloved dog too, died next to them as well, and because they’d died several days ago, there was the smell of the rotten corpse at the scene. Other than discovering a pot of charcoal that’s not yet completely burned out, they’d also found a knife by the bed, and discovered multiple cuts on the couples’ arms too, as for whether or not it was artificial suicide, the police couldn’t tell, as the bodies were decomposed already, they couldn’t really tell the exact cause of their deaths; but because there were no signs of struggles, they’d ruled out any outside forces having caused their deaths.
The police investigated and found, that the 51-year-old Wei was from Baihe, works as a mechanic, four years ago, he’d bought the land with his 52-year-old wife, Chen, and built a house, and started living in retirement, they’d rarely interacted with the neighbors, weren’t active in the community. The police asked around about the Wei’s, other than being casual acquaintances, their professions, nobody knew of what was going on in their homes.
As the news of the Weis death got out, Wei’s wife’s younger sister and mother rushed to Tainan, and Wei’s nephew arrived too; the Chen’s said, that because Wei has emotional troubles, he was being treated by a psychiatrist, they don’t have children, only the Pomeranian.
Normally, Wei’s wife, Chen would contact her younger sister in Hsinchu, to connect with her, but started on the second of this month, the younger sister couldn’t get in touch with them both, it’d made the family worry; first, they’d called the police, hoped that they could check up on them.
The police in Tainan went to the Wei’s house, as they got closer, they’d smelled corpses, and they’d immediately called out to the man in charge of the borough, and called a locksmith to open the doors, and, soon as they walked in, they’d found the Weis, dead on the bed together.
So, this, is a case, of suicide, but what caused it, we will NEVER be sure, because the only people who has the answer to THAT question are both dead, but, because this couple were detached from their community, and perhaps, they were, experiencing the emotional stresses brought on by their daily living routines, they couldn’t find a way out other than death, and, this could’ve been avoided, had someone showed a little more care and concerns, like if the neighbors had gone to knock on their doors, and struck up a conversation with either the husband OR the wife, then, things may have turned out differently, but, none of that happened, and so, this, was how it’d, ended!
