Manhunt For Murder Suspect Goes To China
OFFICERS continuing the international manhunt for murder suspect Anxiang Du have travelled to China.
Three police officers from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit travelled to China on Sunday 25 March and are expected to spend some time there conducting enquiries to assist them in the murder investigation of the Ding family who were killed in their own home in April 2011 in Wootton, Northampton.
Although officers have remained in close contact with the Chinese authorities, it is anticipated that this personal visit will allow officers to speak with associates of Mr Du for any information they may have in identifying people who could have assisted him in his escape.
Officers are also expected to meet the family of the victims face to face in order to update them on the investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Tom Davies, leading the investigation, said: “From the beginning of this investigation we have remained in close contact with the Chinese authorities. This visit will assist us in a number of aims, including raising the awareness of the investigation in China and our hunt for Mr Du.
“The family of the victims - Jifeng Ding, Helen Chui, Xing (18) and Alice (12) Ding - have received ongoing contact by family liaison officers, however meeting them in person will allow us to provide them with a thorough update on the investigation so far.
“We are keen to continue our work with the Chinese law enforcement, who have assisted with the investigation and remained supportive throughout. We are open-minded as to where Mr Du may be, whether that is in China or elsewhere. We know that Mr Du has contacts in China and we are following these leads to establish what information individuals may have and any support he may be receiving.
“I would urge members of the public, whether in the UK, China or elsewhere, that if they have any information as to the current whereabouts of Anxiang Du to come forward and that this information can be given anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or on the crimestoppers website: www.crimestoppers-uk.org”
