This is a norm around my city where most people would kill their parents in return to gaining their life insurance monies In most situations this happen to the parents who are bit older and cannot do anything anymore and that frustrating and inhuman to find a man is killing his own parents just becasue he wants to claim the life insurance money. There is this guy who killed his mother and claimed her life insurance money, i mean this guy is not working and has never worked but now is like he is rolling with the rich. Is a bit confusing because in most cases it seems as if the death of those people(parents) are caused by natural cause. But overall, how come people do things like this?

I am not sure why anyone would want to kill their parents but I have heard of these cases and have seen it documented on t.v. For the most part those who do kill their parents often do so in a way that at first makes it look natural. However crime investigation intelligence is rising now more then ever and therefore cases are being reopened in all offenses and what was once claimed to be an accident is now discovered to be a purposeful murder. Luckily nothing has happened like this in our area, and I hope that it never does. I think more people in this area care about their parents and would never think to do such a thing. I am not sure why people would but I would wonder if it might be repressed feelings or emotions that were never let out. I also think that some people are so desperate to get money that they would do anything, incuding such a terrifying crime. I am sorry that this goes on where you live and I hope that it will stop.

Too sad indeed, the problem is that most of this people who kill their parents take advantage for the fact that they are old and there is nothing laft for them to do in this world and decide to kill them most of them are arrested but still that do not bring back the person they killed. Is like people over here are begining to go mad, i mean how can you kill your own parents for the love of money? thats too bad indeed

Some people think that those who are considered elders are not able to do things, but I don't think that that's true in a lot of cases, nor do I think it's right to kill for that reason. For the love of money, that is also a bad excuse. Money vanishes but love never does! Have a happy holiday season!

How do you know he killed his parent? Maybe the rumours are caused by jealousy all the best urban

At first this guy is known to be somehow a bad person, and the rumour is that his female parent might be poisoned, and again remember the saying "where there is fire there is smoke", although the investigations on this guy are still going about him, most people says he is the killer I am not sure why the investigations take so long, but what i can say is that the life insurance money has been paid and his life style somehow changed

So, it is just a rumour and the accused is presumed innocent till proven guilty all the best urban

That's really a sad news. These people are criminals by all means. How dare them kill their parents for money! Did they think of all the love and care their parents showered to them so that they'll be good citizens and individuals as well. This is so frustrating because I mean even though how helpless or useless their parents might be, its still their obligation to pay back the sacrifices and good things their parents did to them. Oh Hope this norm your talking about should be stopped as soon as possible before it becomes a trend.. Hmp ^^/

SO sad because all they want is the lavish life, i caompare this to what we come across online "scammers". I mean there is no much different with this people, the only different is the fact that this guys over here kill their own parents, the ones who loved them from when they were just little kids This is madness people do here

It is simply because "money is the root of all evil" and because of money people of today will make any headway to grab it.

Hi loxion, your discussion made me think back to my college days. I have this classmate in one class, a half-Chinese, half-Filipino guy who was sharing this "problem" to me. He said his father was forcing him to sign some insurance papers. You see, his father got him insured for a million pesos. Now my classmate was getting paranoid over it and was thinking his Dad might kill him when he sign the papers. We were laughing then, we thought it was funny. We never really thought he was serious though. I don't believe his father will kill him, let alone hurt him. For God's sake he is his son! But I know, these things happen and it's really sad. I don't really know what's with these people that they let their greed rule over their love for their own blood.
