The reporting on this advent is not sympathetic (thank Goddess) but I wonder how much of that had to do with the fact the man was an immigrant.
Before he killed his favourite child, he wrote a note to his wife saying that, since she chose divorce, “catastrophic events” would follow…
“It appears that [the man], for reasons known only to himself, decided to punish his wife and sons,” Detective Wilson said.
“In order to achieve this, he has with full intention killed his daughter … by strangulation and/or suffocation, leaving her body at the foot of his bed, which may have been symbolic to him, where she would be found by her mother and brother.
For reasons known only to himself. Remember that the next twenty times you read about a man commiting murder to punish his wife.
