The “Hero” Who Killed
The suspect, 55-year-old Ou Jinzhong, fled the scene. When the local police had trouble finding him, they offered a reward: 20,000 yuan for information that captured him alive… and 50,000 yuan to anyone who could prove he was dead. The story got a lot of traction on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter. A surprising number of posts expressed sympathy for the alleged killer — even support. “Uncle, run away,” read one of the top comments. “Hope you can still find happiness for the remainder of your life.” It’s unlikely that the poster’s wish was granted. After a week of searching, authorities found Ou Jinzhong hiding out in a cave. They say he killed himself during the arrest. Weibo users are skeptical about the official story.
