A husband took this photo of his wife and then killed her. Why?

From Sina Weibo:

@孤祣: A man returning from a business trip took this photo of his wife, and then killed his wife. When police asked him why he wanted to kill his wife, the man said he saw from this photo that his wife had cheated on him! Are you able to find what the man saw in the photo that made him realize his wife had been unfaithful?


WARNING: The answer is present in the translated Chinese netizen comments below.

Comments from Sina Weibo:


Don’t upvote me, I have EXO, I will kill one for each upvote I get.


Motherfucking! There are eyes in the lower-right corner of the mattress! I pissed myself when I clicked to enlarge the photo! Fuck!


I spent half the day looking without seeing anything, but after reading the comments, I no longer dare to look at the photo. Do whatever you please.


I’m reminded of a joke, about a Mr. Wang returning home after work. Upon seeing his wife at home, he told his wife a joke. His wife didn’t laugh, but out from the closet came the sound of a laugh!


There are eyes at the corner of the bed’s mattress, scared me to death. [悲伤][悲伤] I want to cry. [泪]


Hidden at the head of the bed is the male adulterer, you can see one of his eyes as well as his nose. I personally think it doesn’t look realistic. There is too little room there, it can’t hide an entire person. It’s just an illusion. It’s just like when we look at clouds. The clouds look like whatever we have in our heads. The entire thing probably is like this… some diaosi, after jacking off, accidentally saw what looks like a person’s head in this photo. He made up a story about a murder, then posted it on the internet to get eyeballs [attention].


Tell me honestly, you guys, whether you really saw what it is. Making the mood/atmosphere so heavy [scary] is so mean to those of us who don’t even dare open the photo. [失望]


Before I looked at the comments, I had guessed there were two mobile phone chargers.


Fuck, looking at the photo isn’t actually frightening, but looking at the comments have me trembling.


That person’s eye was Photoshopped on. It’s a photo of the male lead actor [Anthony Hopkins] in The Silence of the Lambs. Everyone can stop being scared now.

  • b duck

    its so fake!
    this kinda bed can not hide a person inside. idiot!

    • b duck

      but my first thought was there are two used condoms next to glasses, hahaha!

      • Probotector

        These are earphones.

        • b duck


          • Guess999

            Your not the only one to think there was condoms hidden in the photo some where. I think a lot of people were looking for condoms as well


          • b duck

            ha, you look so gay!

          • Guess999

            Haha you kill me apparently I’m a girl and in the photo is Jayy von Monroe from BOTDF.

          • b duck

            ok, but i would never lke this type guys!

      • Anark1

        My initial thought was there must have been condoms in the pic 😁

  • Probotector

    It’s not that scary. No one could hide in that kind of a space.

  • LAma

    So is he still hiding under there?

  • twelveways

    It doesn’t look like Anthony Hopkins…

    I don’t believe this story (or the photo) is real either, although I did enjoy looking for the ‘clue’ (I didn’t see it til I saw the comments).

    • slob

      No, it isn’t real. There are tonnes of photos like this on the internet intended to make you jump. Check out for some examples. , here’s a small example though it doesn’t make you jump.

  • Fumanchu

    The eyes under the mattress look photoshopped the mans sunglasses on the bed head thingy do not.

  • Anark1

    I thought Waldo was gay.

  • SongYii

    ‘I spent half the day lookin…’ What? GET A JOB, DICK!

    fake story, but fun.

    will never understand men who kill their wives for cheating. just kick them to the curb and let them live out their crazy drama.

  • erosennin

    It’s a titan!

  • SimpsonsGoldenAge

    There’s no way someone could fit in that bed in such a way their eyes would be positioned there.

  • Jump? Why i it scary?

  • SongYii

    Oh, come on. How do you get Disqus to stop notifying about upvotes and downvotes? I don’t care.

    And whats the best VPN for China? Mine’s about to run out, and it has grown to be pretty shitty.

  • filabusta

    Hah I thought his eye was a condom. That would have been more believable.

  • LuoyangLaowai

    At first I was guessing Maybe she didn’t wear glasses. Then I was thinking. What married couple would share a bed that small. That looks like a bed for one. Then I saw the eyes. I don’t believe its real.

  • KamikaziPilot

    Several questions: who takes a picture of their wife on their bed after coming home from a trip, if that guy under her bed is her lover why would he be home when the wife knew when her husband would come home (unless he came home earlier than expected), the space seems awfully small to fit a person, and what if the person hiding actually was an intruder intending to do harm to the wife, not her lover. In other words like what most people think, it’s probably a fake, but still interesting.

  • Guess999

    Anyone but me thinks the eyes that the so called “killer” saw and thought that his wife was cheating, must be from a magazine wedged between the bed and the wall.

    Cause thats the first thing that came to mind.

  • Nihilist

    I thought it was because the fan is pointing to the bed. Maybe it´s not so hot there and just need to use it when having sex.

  • Apothis

    I don’t know about her cheating…but I have the same fan in my house.

  • Matt

    Played it last week. Creeped me out, big time, once I saw it. Would have been even worse if the story was that both were murdered and the detective finally solved the case when he saw the picture.

  • Dan Xtropian

    It’s not Anthony Hopkins, and yes, a slender guy really can fit there.
