Suicide Forest in Japan
The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

A 17-year-old Florida boy was arrested on Sunday after police said he murdered his parents – and then threw a party, police said.
Tyler Hadley allegedly bashed his parents’ heads in with a hammer and then stashed the bodies in the bedroom of their Port St. Lucie house, WPBF-TV reported. Then he threw a raging party that lasted until early Sunday morning.
Cops told the TV station that around 40-60 people came to the party after Hadley sent out a massive Facebook invite to his house.
Hours after the partiers left, the bodies were discovered—with books and towels on top of them in an attempt to hide them—while Hadley was still shaking off his hangover on Sunday morning, according to the report.
“It was a merciless killing,” Capt. Don Kryak told the television station.
Cops said they went to the house for a “welfare check” after receiving an anonymous tip.
An anonymous teen outside the house told WSVN-TV he believed the high school dropout killed his parents because they wouldn’t let him have the party. Hadley is being held without bail on two counts of first degree murder.
Seriously.. WTF kid!? D:
