Wife kills family after husband fakes death

Recommended Posts

The Caspian Hare


A man who faked his own death to cheat on his insurance turned himself in when he discovered his wife had killed herself and their two young children because of his disappearance.

The man, 34, and identified only by his surname He, surrendered to police on Friday and has been detained on charges of insurance fraud and intentional damage to property, according to a police statement on social media platform WeChat.

He, from China’s southern province of Hunan, confessed that he had bought life insurance cover of 1 million yuan on September 7, without telling his wife. He then rented a car from his employer and drove it into the river so his family would be able to claim the insurance, the police said.

Thinking that her husband was dead, his wife, Dai Guihua, 31, left her last note on WeChat on Wednesday and disappeared with their son and daughter, aged four and two, sparking a search by local authorities in Xinhua county.

Their bodies were retrieved the next day from a lake near their home in Langtang township.
