A man was murdered in front of several witnesses at an internet cafe in Taiwan earlier this month.
Authorities explained that the 18-year-old suspect walked into the cafe on April 3 and proceeded to stab another man to death. The victim, who is believed to have been several years older than the killer, was attacked with a watermelon knife.
Several people were inside the internet cafe when the man was murdered. Although the incident took place in front of several individuals, no one bothered to help the victim fight off his assailant.
After the stabbing took place, several people simply stood around the man’s body. One female gamer reportedly continued to play her game despite the fact that blood had splattered on her clothes. The murder was captured on the cafe’s surveillance system.
Some people who were inside the internet cafe continued to sit motionless at their monitors. It’s currently unclear if police have made any arrests in the killing.
This isn’t the first time Taiwanese gamers have been unaffected by something that has happened inside an internet cafe. A 23-year-old video game fan named Chen Rong-yu reportedly suffered a heart attack after playing League of Legends for nearly 24 hours straight.
The man died at a cafe in New Taipei City. Since he often took naps in-between gaming sessions, nobody became concerned when he slumped over in his chair. Nearly 30 people inside the cafe didn’t realize that Chen had died while playing the game. A waitress only noticed after rigor mortis had set in.
It’s believed that the 23-year-old League of Legends fan was dead for nearly nine hours before folks realized what had happened. It’s believed Chen’s heart attack was caused by low body temperature and fatigue.
