The police of Russia’s Rostov region are investigating the death of a 7-year-old boy, who died while playing a serial killer with other children. The child died of the self-inflicted stab wound as he was chasing his friends.
Four little children were staying at home unattended in the town of Novoshakhtinsk, the Rostov region. A seven-year-old boy named only as Kostya K. offered others to play the game of serial killers, “the cool murderers” as seen in the movies. He grabbed a kitchen knife and began to frighten other children with it, Life.ru website reports.
“The children ran away from the boy to another room and shut the door behind them at the moment when the boy was running after them holding a knife in his hand. As soon as the children shut the door, they heard the boy crying. The kids opened the door and saw that “the serial killer” had stabbed himself in the head,” a police officer said.
The boy ran against the door and incidentally plunged the knife into his head. The children called their parents, who took the bleeding boy to a local hospital, where he subsequently died.
