Wow. This is really sad. Full story, see the link. http://digital.asiaone.com/Digital/News/Story/A1Story20100305-202607.htmlThe 41-year-old husband and 25-year-old wife met through an online chatting website and were both gaming addicts.
Since moving out from the wife's parents' house, they spent most of their time in internet cafes, reportedly leaving their newborn girl completely unattended. They only occasionally dropped by to feed her powdered milk.Last September, after a 12-hour gaming-session, they came home in the morning to find their daughter dead, said officials.The baby's malnourished body fueled police suspicion that the couple was responsible for the death because of neglect. They then requested the National Institute of Scientific Investigation to perform an autopsy.The couple soon fled to the wife's parents' house in Yangju, Gyeonggi Province but was detected on Monday.The powdered milk formula in the feeding bottle was spoiled when the police found the deceased baby, said officials."I am sorry for what I did and hope that my daughter does not suffer any more in heaven," the husband said.The couple, being jobless and almost penniless, could not bear the parental burden and thus ended up escaping reality by abandoning themselves to virtual reality, said police officials.The game which stole their attention away from their baby was ironically a role playing game in which they raised a virtual character of a young girl, according to officials.
