A report out of South Korea states that a 15-year old killed his mother and then committed suicide following a fight over online videogames.
A police official said that a fight began sometime on Monday in Busan, Korea when the mother scolded her son about playing online games. The mother was later found strangled to death in the family’s home, presumably the same place where the son was found dead after hanging himself.
The police official claimed that the alleged murderer’s sister said that the boy had been “playing violent Internet games for the past two to three years.”
Busan, a port city, is South Korea’s second-largest municipality after Seoul, boasting a population of about 3.6 million.
