Car Theft Ends With Baby Strangled
A man who stole a car with a 2-month-old boy inside in Changchun, Jilin Province, confessed to police late Tuesday afternoon he had murdered the infant.
Zhou Xijun, 48, stole the SUV on Monday morning, triggering a province-wide manhunt involving 3,500 police officers.
The case sparked public outcry as soon as it was reported by local media, with many Web users on microblogging service Sina Weibo urging each other to help find the baby.
Zhou turned himself in to police at 5 pm Tuesday. He told officers that he drove to Gongzhuling county, about 60 kilometers southwest of Changchun, where he strangled the baby and buried it in snow.
