League of Legends gamer dies in internet cafe, people notice 10 hours later
Staff members at an Internet cafe in New Taipei City discovered the lifeless body of Chen Jung-yu Wednesday night when they came to tell him that the 23-hour gaming pass he had purchased Tuesday night had expired. The 23-year-old gamer apparently died 10 hours earlier, according the Taipei Times.
Police told the Taipei Times they were disgusted when they arrived at the scene to find other gamers were disinterested in the corpse and wanted to continue playing during the investigation.
A picture of the crime scene shows the corpse with outstretched arms reaching toward the keyboard of a computer.
The body had apparently been in that position since 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, about 10 hours into Chen’s gaming session.
According to the Mirror, Chen had been playing “League of Legends,” a 3D online multi-player videogame.
Investigators are still determining the cause of Chen’s death. According to his family, Chen was treated for a heart problem in September, Sky News reports.
