Changchun Stolen Car Already Found, Baby in Car Missing
Summary: March 4th morning at around 7:20, at the Xihuancheng Lu and Longhua Lu intersection in Changchun, a silver-gray Toyota RAV4 with license plate “吉A·MM102” was stolen, with a 2-month-old male infant in the car.
Yesterday around 10, the Changchun City Public Security Bureau held a press conference. After Changchun city police learned of the incident, over 3500 traffic, patrol, and special police officers searched the entire city for the automobile.
Hundreds of taxis voluntarily went out searching for the infant
After the incident, many Changchun taxis and private car owners immediately joined in the search upon learning about it, with hundreds of taxis at this point having abandoned their normal business and many private car owners abandoning work to voluntarily search the entire city for the stolen car and the little infant.
To awe and intimidate the criminal suspect, nearly all of the vehicles participating in the search turned on their emergency blinkers. Some Changchun media and netizens made appeals hoping that other silver-grey RAV4s would not take to the road, to save unnecessary trouble for the kind-hearted masses and police looking for the baby boy.
Changchun Car Case Suspect Surrenders, Infant Strangled Buried in Snow
According to information posted by the Jilin Provincial Public Security Bureau Official Weibo @吉林公安, suspect Zhou Xijun surrendered himself to the police on the 5th. According to Zhou Xijun’s explanation, after stealing the car, Zhou discovered the infant boy crying, then strangled the child to death, and buried it in the snow by the roadside.
Comments from NetEase:
[He] can be executed now.
If you’re going to steal a car, then steal the car, why commit murder? Recommend that these child-killers all be executed.
Why did he have to do this??
Too vile! He should pay with his life!!!!
I feel numb all over. I am a child’s father, I can understand the feelings of all fathers and mothers.
What an evil man. If you were to commit suicide I would think you human. But you are not human for now surrendering yourself, dreading punishment for your crime, no better than beast!
Fuck… From when I saw the news yesterday to today, I’ve been paying close attention to this incident, even thinking about it at night when trying to sleep. When I reached the office in the morning, I looked at the latest news, hoping to see good news. At noon, my coworkers and I even analyzed the incident, and even though our analysis was that everything bodes ill, I still prayed for the child hoping for a miracle to appear. I never thought the ending would still be this sad. Zhou Xijun, you beast, should’ve just directly cut off your flesh… yes, and with a blunt knife… fuck…
Agreed, only people with children can understand this kind… [of feeling]
I keep wondering, why was the infant left alone in the car? Don’t let this kind of tragedy happen again. If parents were more careful, children would suffer so much less!
How could anyone put their hands on [kill] such a cute child? It had just arrived in this world for 2 months, and before it had the chance to see to really see this world, it has had to leave.
Utterly heartless! 48-year-old, does he himself not have a child?
Comments from Sina Weibo:
A country that can have a government that can have its own people cut the throats and shoot dead its own people while still collecting a 5 cent bullet fee will certainly have evil people who are vicious enough to strangely to death a two-month old infant—-Welcome to the world of devils and beasts!
Mainland China not only doesn’t have safe milk that can raise a child, it doesn’t even have a safe social environment.
A weak-minded brute to the extreme. How big could the crime of stealing a car be? Committing murder is simply being an idiot. Even able to kill a little infant. How could anyone do such a thing. God, just what is wrong with Chinese people? Why are Chinese people such beasts? Have we all lost our minds over money?
Little Haobo, be good, don’t cry, follow the road to heaven, it will be very lonely, don’t blame the police, don’t blame the parents, only hate Zhou Xijun for being so savage, and when you reincarnate in your next life, find a good family, regardless of whether rich or poor, that won’t leave or abandon you!
A robber is able to drive the car out of the provincial capital city filled with surveillance cameras, strutting out from beneath the police’s nose, and over the 30+ hours between the incident and his surrender, the police dispatched over 10,000 people without finding this car, and they say they were working around the clock continuously? Multiple investigation methods? May I ask the police: What are your video cameras and surveillance cameras for? When they are so accurate when it comes to photographing traffic violators? Are they just used for fining taxpayers? The guy surrenders himself, and you guys come and take the credit! So sad!
Fuck… what was this person thinking… This kind of vicious person must not be allowed to live. Although sometimes I think the death penalty is rather cruel, this person must be sentenced to death… too fucking furious.
Pandora, please! Close your box of evil! The human race is mad enough, the evil of human nature cannot be this unbridled!
Was it because we spread [the news to find the car and baby] too fast that the thief panicked and resorted to such desperate measures? [The original Chinese text is literally “cornered dog jumps wall”]
I really want to ask one question, once the police were called, what were all the traffic cops at each intersection doing? If they had promptly just seized the moment a little more, would the child’s end be different?
Please don’t denounce the parents as being careless. Although they indeed were negligent, they were indeed also afraid of the child being cold. We can only remind parents everywhere that they can leave someone to watch the child. No matter when and where, one must not let your child leave your sight.
Why did he surrender himself? Was it done by his son? I question and request the truth.
“Human scum” can no longer describe this kind of person!! Executing him ten thousand times would not be enough! Little baby, may you rest in peace in heaven.
