Is Freddy Loose in China? Suicides Plague Foxconn, Exorcist Brought In

Foxconn (manufacturers of iPhone, 360, PS3 and Wii parts, among other tech) has seen NINE suicide attempts so far this year, seven of which were successful. The latest victim was found with a bloody knife and multiple stab wounds after falling from the 7th floor of a company dormitory.

This is apparently nothing new at Foxconn either, back in July of 2009 a man killed himself after being questioned over a missing iPhone prototype (looks like Gray Powell dodged a bullet there!)

It’s apparently gotten so bad that Foxconn is now bringing in an exorcist do deal with the “negative incidents”.

"Since they’re an electronic supplier, you may not have heard of them, but if you own any hardware made by Apple, Microsoft, Nintendo or Sony, chances are you have some electronics that came out of a Foxconn plant."

It's a tech story.

Forgive for I am half-asleep >.< and about to pass out right now...

Bathyj2655d ago

Whats it got to do with Freddy?

bjornbear2654d ago

don't ask...

but seriously, i think its the association with insomnia and lack of sleep / stress, thus freddy and the whole "don't sleep or you'll die" idea...

stupid but...wtv it gets hits

ThanatosDMC2654d ago

Yeah, im confused too but if it's a Freddy problem... shouldnt they send out Jason to take care of him?

SeanRL2654d ago

Holy stab wounds batman! Sounds like a conspiracy!

dizzleK2655d ago

it's more likely that they've watched the tape from Ringu or formed some type of Suicide Circle pact.

I wish people would learn how to read:

"What is going on over at Foxconn? Since they’re an electronic supplier, you may not have heard of them, but if you own any hardware made by Apple, Microsoft, Nintendo or Sony, chances are you have some electronics that came out of a Foxconn plant."

It's about suicides that might be murders and the fact these yoyos are bringing in an EXORCIST as part of a LEGAL TRIAL.

Multiple stab wounds after falling from the 7th floor.

That's the worst suicide attempt I've ever heard of. It's obviously a series of murders. No one stabs themself to commit suicide, especially when they are already near a high fall.

"27 stab wounds in the back. Worst case of suicide I ever seen."

Lord knows, when I'm accused of stealing some tech, I go and kill myself right after I'm questioned out of depression.

SixZeroFour2655d ago

dont know if your quote was the original one, but the one i see in the article just says 10 stab wounds and nothing about it being in the back

but in case yours was the original "quote", lol...you know how hard it is to stab yourself in the back, especially 27 times? if your quote was the original correct one, then that definitely wasnt a suicide

execution172654d ago

and how the hell you stab yourself 10+ times, i'd probably be able to do it 2 to 3 times max before i drop in agony

Darkfocus2654d ago

even if it was ten times why the hell would you stab yourself 10 times if you where near a highfall anyway and were going to jump?

dizzleK2655d ago

don't asian countries have a history of sweeping murders under the rug in order to maintain the appearance of having low crime? i don't know about china but i've heard that in japan suspicious deaths are routinely labeled accidents and suicide.

ABizzel12654d ago

This needs to be investigated.

"Exorcist Brought In"
Seriously?...GTFO with that nonsense and bring in some investigators.
