Monica Gooden, a 20-year-old from Lauderhill, Florida, was beaten to death with a Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming console after being stabbed multiple times by her boyfriend, Darrius Johnson.

Takuya Nagaya, 23, from Japan, started to slither on the floor and talk about becoming a snake. His mother took this to mean that he had been possessed by a snake demon and called for her husband, 53-year-old Katsumi Nagaya, who spent the next two days physically beating his son in an attempt to exorcise the demon. This killed Takuya.
On December 15th 2013 27 year old Indonesian copywriter Mita Diran died after literally working non-stop for 30 hours straight without any rest. Having taken a lot of energy drinks to keep her going, the overload of caffeine in the drinks caused a blood vessel in her brain to rupture, causing poor Mita to experience painful headaches before eventually collapsing and slipping into a coma. Mita died after being treated for a few hours in a Jakarta hospital.
Diran wrote about work on her Tumblr page multiple times. One of her posts, entitled “An Open Plea,” talked about how she was working eight days straight.
