12-Year-Old Boy Strangled to Death After Walking In On Mother and Lover

Modern Express — Hu Wei of Suqian city Sucheng district originally allowed his wife’s “cousin” to temporarily stay at their home out of kindness, never expecting that his 12-year-old son would be murdered as a result. In less than four hours, Suqian police successfully arrested the suspect. It turns out, the so-called “cousin” was actually the wife’s lover, and the murder was a result of their intimate acts being exposed.

July 22, Hu Wei agreed to allowing his wife Wang Qingfang’s “cousin” to come temporarily stay with them. On the morning of July 26, Hu Wei and his wife discovered their son Yang Yang dead in his bedroom and, at the same time, the “cousin” Yang Xiaoqiang had also disappeared. The police who arrived on the scene discovered that Yang Yang’s neck appeared to have bruises akin to strangulation, and at the same time learned from Wang Qingfang’s testimony: “Yang Xiaoqiang actually isn’t my cousin, and is my lover.” At 11:40am that day, police arrested Yang Xiaoqiang at the Sihong Bus Station, less than four hours after the crime was reported.

As it is understood, Wang Qingfang and Yang Xiaoqiang are both from Yuning province Luxi county, have known each other since they were small, and the two became lovers after a chance encounter on a train back to their hometown the year before last. On July 22, Yang Xiaoqiang, who works in Shanghai, came Suqian to see his lover under the guise of being her “cousin”. Taking advantage of Hu Wei leaving home early and coming home late, they had intimate relations. At 8pm on the evening of July 25, Yang Yang came out of his bedroom and happened to see Yang Xiaoqiang holding his mother. Afraid of their secret being exposed, at 12 midnight, Yang Xiaoqiang used the excuse of going to Yang Yang’s bedroom to watch TV to strangle the boy to death. Afterward, he returned to his own room to sleep for a bit, waiting until daybreak to take a public bus to Sihong, where he was arrested by police around noon that day.

Lives in your home, eats your food, fucks your wife, kills your son。 There’s a lot of grievance in this one.

刺刀34 [网易江西省网友]:

Kills someone and is still able to sleep for a bit? This guy’s mental/emotional character is definitely not normal. There must be other/past crimes.

會忽悠得天下 [网易浙江省金华市网友]:

“Bringer of disaster” is not enough to describe this woman.

jack2349 [网易江苏省扬州市网友]:

TM what intelligence is this? So he kills the kid because he’s afraid of the kid telling? So murder is less risky than having the secret exposed?

正义鹰派 [网易澳门网友]:

Recommend that the murderer be paraded in public before being executed!

xp932009 [网易广东省广州市网友]:

To brutal! You’ve already X’d the kid’s mother, and you still murder him! The kid’s mother sure is brave as well, even daring to bring him into the home! Now you regret it, eh? This kind of person should just be dragged out and used as target practice!

rfefayrose [网易四川省成都市网友]:

This woman sure isn’t fit to be a mother. Bad women will go to hell.

oaipiqnehc [网易广西钦州市网友]:

“Gambling leads to stealing, adultery leads to murder” is a solid truth.

天一的天天下第一的一 [网易陕西省延安市网友]:

Sigh, a member of the ordinary masses doesn’t even qualify for the accusation of adultery, and at most will get only get moral criticism plus quarreling between married couple.

lbqwerty [网易天津市网友]: (responding to above)

The ancients say that all evil comes from lust, and this case is a great example of what the ancients say.

Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.

  • Surfeit

    That first comment is… sharp!

    • Mighty曹

      Sharper still had he said ‘sleeps in your bed’.

      • Kai

        Heh, well, they might’ve been on the couch…

        Yang Yang came out of his bedroom and happened to see Yang Xiaoqiang holding his mother.

        • donscarletti

          It’s impossible to claim the sofa in a reply, no-matter what you call it.

    • mr.wiener

      Nothing says “I love you” like killing their son I guess.

  • Freddi BuBu

    Ahh, the ol’ “cousin needs a place to stay” ploy – am surprised it’s not used more often….

    • Mighty曹

      Kissing cousins wouldn’t be a ploy.

  • FYIADragoon

    Woman should be put in front of the firing squad with her lover. She apparently didn’t think anything of endangering her child, and clearly is of low moral character. That the lover should be killed goes without saying.

  • donscarletti

    I think jack2349 makes the best point.

    What the hell was going through this guy’s mind? As if nobody would be able to guess who killed the kid. He could have just skipped town so easily and let the woman deal with being caught committing adultery.

    Such a giant idiot.

    • YourSupremeCommander

      When your little head takes control, you can do some really stupid things.

    • a giant psychopath

    • slob

      It says he went to lie down afterwards for a rest. Like who the hell could rest after strangling a kid to death?

      Reminds me of that case in Australia I think, where a woman skinned her husband and tried to feed his meat to the kids. The cops came in and found her sleeping in her bed while 2 plates of ‘food’ were served and ready on the table.

      Some people are just so mentally fcked up.

  • lacompacida

    PRC logic dictates that this is the kid’s fault for not being careful not to interrupt what adults doing adultly things, called adultery. The father bears major responsibility for allowing the “cousin” to stay in his home too. The wife was the real victim in this case. She lost her lover, her son, and her husband.

    • Dr Sun


  • JabroniZamboni

    I’ve heard of people getting choked up about extra marital affairs, but this is ridiculous.

  • Rick in China

    With her son at home…. in her husband’s bed (presumably), crazy. This is one of the most scandalous bold faced liars around – where’s her photo??

    • Mighty曹

      She better be worth all that time he’ll be spending in prison.

    • Surfeit

      You reckon she’s a munter, or pretty?

      • Rick in China

        No idea, I just want her face to be strapped to the articles so her community has the opportunity to shame her into suicide.

        • Surfeit

          If you could choose her suicide method, what would it be?

  • AbC

    The authorities should postpone any sentence and make an exception on this case to allow the husband an hour or two behind closed doors with the perpetrator bound and gagged.

    I can’t think of anything worse than having your son killed by someone who had just fucked your wife whilst you were at work…

    • Mighty曹

      In a way part of the blame should be on the husband for being too trusting and not pry enough about a stranger who suddenly appears.

      • Zappa Frank

        not really, a husband ideally should be able to trust his wife.. the blame is all on the wife.

        • Mighty曹

          Nope. Too trusting and being naïve is a fault and to be blamed.

      • AbC

        Any reasonable person wouldn’t attribute any blame on the husband. His only fault was trusting someone who was supposed to be his closest companion…

        • Mighty曹

          How naïve.

    • Teacher in China

      I wonder if he also drank coffee from his coffee cup, brushed his teeth with his toothbrush, and wore his favourite underwear….

      • Zappa Frank

        and he didn’t flush the toilet…

    • Surfeit

      It’s a reality version of ‘Goldilocks and the 3 Bears’.

  • satuon

    This guy definitely wasn’t the brightest bulb in the box. Afraid of his affair being exposed, so let’s replace that with afraid of the murder he committed being exposed. Good thing he didn’t figure that if he killed the wife as well, he would probably have gotten away, since the husband knew him only by a fake name, and Chinese police probably won’t be pulling CSI-level DNA crap to find him.

    • Teacher in China

      Yeah I was waiting for the part where it said “He couldn’t afford a bus ticket out of town, so he decided to sell some cocaine on the street to make the money.” The dude’s decision making processes were clearly out of whack.

  • Apothis

    This woman either has a set of gigantic balls or zero brains….maybe both. To bring her lover into her house under the guise of being her cousin….you just can’t make it up. Or maybe the husband isn’t playing with a full deck…..

    • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

      I guess it’s not uncommon to have family over for extended stays.

      • Mighty曹

        or… extended family staying over.

  • Mighty曹

    Doesn’t take long for an idiot to go from committing adultery to murder.

    • Dr Sun

      does this mean Bill will kill Hilary or Chelsea very soon, or visa versa ?

      • Has there been a new adultery scandal in the past 16 years that I’m not aware of?

        • Dr Sun


        • David

          Scandal? No, they are all used to his womanizing now, so no scandals. They just keep looking the other way like good coat-tail riders.

      • Mighty曹

        This means adultery with one person and killing someone else.

  • dgosh343

    Sounds familiar, only the boy wasn’t pushed out of a window.

    • Kai

      LoL, I thought of it too, except Bran wasn’t Robert’s son. If only Jaime pushed fucking Joffrey…oh wait, not Robert’s son either!

  • IsurvivedChina

    The lights were on but nobody was at home!

  • SongYii

    Whatever happened to “hey, kid, here’s 100 yuan…. keep your mouth shut.”

  • Jawollski

    You can’t make this stuff up.
    Thanks China.

  • I didn’t know the “co-workers” my father had over were in fact working girls until I was about 15, but by then my parents had already divorced. If a married woman is doing the nasty with you, it probably means her marriage is deteriorating and that, at least in her mind, divorce is on the horizon. So……should have just kept on giving her the D, but now the state is about to give you the D!

  • disqus_wcDnEMiQ1s

    How does this shit add up? This guy has dick-all for a motive. If the kid goes and tells his daddy, it’s not HIS life that’s going to be in the shitter. The only person with a rock solid motive for offing the boy is his own mamma…. Am I the only one who sees this?

    • Kai

      Let’s hope, for the police’s sake, that they’ve already covered this angle, but that’s a titilating observation from you nonetheless! That said, I wouldn’t say the guy has no motive at all, and there’s still the old saying “never attribute to malice what can be attributed to stupidity”.

  • mr.wiener

    For some reason I’m reminded of the story of Wu Song from the Water Margin.

  • So in order to save face they generated a massive loss of face…
    would anybody think of the children?

  • Dr Sun

    Is this reply from your diary/ self biography ?

  • a.w.

    “The ancients say that all evil comes from lust, and this case is a great example of what the ancients say.”

    A fine example of a use of a proverb

  • David

    When I was reading the headlines I was thinking “Game of Thrones” except it turns out they are not really related, so just sociopath. Also, is everybody else fully convinced the wife REALLY is 100% uninvolved in the murder part?

  • David

    Really? THIS is why you don’t date?
