Son slits father’s throat in Valencia
By Joe Wickman A 35-YEAR-OLD man killed his father late last week, reportedly for insulting his mother.
The victim, 73, lived in the house with his wife and son. The night of the crime, with his wife out of the house, father and son reportedly engaged in an argument, during which the alleged killer cut his throat and left the house.
When the wife returned she found the husband agonizing next to a pool of blood and immediately called the emergency services, although by the time they arrived they were only able to confirm the man’s passing.
Meanwhile, her son confessed to the crime, simply stating to police officers that ‘I killed him because he called my mother a bitch’. Sources explain he had mental issues, but was not officially diagnosed, so police investigations are currently centered around learning whether he knew what he was doing when murdering his father.
Blood samples are also being tested to know if he was under the influence of any type of substance.
