Bird flu couple commits suicide
Straits Times |
"A Japanese husband and wife apparently hanged themselves yesterday after he was accused of covering up a bird flu outbreak in his family's poultry business. Some 18,000 chickens had died of bird flu on Mr Hajimu Asada's farm by the time an anonymous tip-off brought the authorities' attention to it... The Asadas apologised publicly for the spread of the disease but denied intentionally covering it up. The government was considering criminal charges against him. Mr Hajimu Asada, 67, and his wife, Chisako, 64, were found yesterday morning hanged from a tree back to back outside a chicken pen... Police found a Suicide Note saying: 'We have caused so much trouble.'"
