A 49-year-old woman in Taiwan stabbed her husband to death then killed herself after finding out that he’d gotten another woman pregnant.
Police were alerted to the scene by one of the couple’s neighbors, who’d noticed that there’d been no activity within the house for several days.
When officers broke into the home, they found the 56-year-old man dead in his bed after having been stabbed multiple times. His wife’s body was in the bathroom. She had sealed off the door and died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Police found a suicide note from the woman saying that she had found out about her husband’s affair after being contacted by his mistress, whom he’d apparently gotten pregnant.
She explained that she didn’t want to go through ‘the scandal’ that comes with divorce, so she killed him and then herself because she couldn’t live without him.
