Son slits fa­ther’s throat in Va­len­cia

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

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.
