Family murder suspect caught after 29 years
A man alleged to have killed five people and seriously injured a sixth 29 years ago in suburban Shanghai was caught on August 11, police said on Thursday.
The man, surnamed He, now 56 years old, lived in Maogang Town in Songjiang District and is said to have committed the murders because of a family dispute.
