A 51-year-old lady in Taipei New City reportedly hung herself after an argument with her daughter.

She was found dead on Feb. 5, the first day of Chinese New Year.

Argument with daughter on CNY

Apparently, the alleged suicide occurred after an argument with her daughter, who is in her 20s.

According to a news report, the mother supposedly approached her daughter for a chat on the evening of Feb. 4.

The conversation supposedly turned sour the moment the mother mentioned that her daughter should look for a job.

They got into an argument, and they both stormed off to their respective bedrooms after that.

The daughter did not expect that this argument would be the last conversation she would have with her mother.

Police investigating case

The mother’s body was reportedly discovered by her daughter around noon the next day, on Feb. 5, when she entered her mother’s room to wake her up.

She apparently found her mother hanging from a red nylon rope.

The mother was rushed to the hospital, but unfortunately, it was too late.

The police did not find signs of foul play, and are currently investigating the case.
