Chapter 378 Another Case
Meanwhile, Lu Fei’s arms were bleeding. He was almost about to faint because of the pain, so he did not care about the others.
Nalan Wuxia looked at these people and told Qin Haodong, “Stop making them bleed first, or it will be troublesome if them die.”
Qin Haodong raised his hand and stabbed several acupoints on Lu Fei’s shoulders. Lu Fei’s two arms stopped bleeding immediately. Then, Qin Haodong helped those people, including Fatty Dragon, stop bleeding.
A policeman who had searched the room came over and said, “Captain, we found many living organs in the incubator, including hearts and livers. There are about 20 organs.”
Nalan Wuxia said, “Take these organs to the hospital for preservation immediately. Then take the victims and all the criminals to the police station.”
Qin Haodong pointed to Fatty Dragon and said, “This man is the mastermind. Let him and Lu Fei stay here and we will clear up this matter.”
Nalan Wuxia nodded and tasked her subordinates to take all the guards of Fatty Dragon to the police station, leaving only Fatty Dragon and Lu Fei in the room.
Since this was urgent, Qin Haodong didn’t talk to them. He directly used Mind-Manipulation and asked Fatty Dragon, “Did you commit the murders in Jiangnan City the other day?”
Upon hearing his question, Nalan Wuxia immediately became nervous. After so many days of hard work, they hadn’t made much progress in the case. If those people were really the culprits, it would be an explanation for the general public.
However, Fatty Dragon shook his head and said, “I don’t know what you are talking about. We have never murdered anyone in Jiangnan City.”
Qin Haodong frowned and asked, “If you haven’t murdered anyone in Jiangnan City, where did these organs come from?”
Fatty Dragon said, “We trade human organs, but for the sake of confidentiality, we never commit crimes in Jiangnan City. These people are from other places. Their organs are excised in Jiangnan City and then sold abroad by sea…”
It was easy to find out. It turned out that these people were in a very well-organized criminal gang. They specialized in the sale of human organs and were very skillful in the crimes they committed.
First of all, they did not commit crimes in local areas. They caught homeless people or people with mental disabilities from other places and excised their bodies in Jiangnan City. Then, their organs would be directly sold abroad by sea.
Lu Fei, who was the doctor in charge of the operation, would get 10% commission for each operation. Because the means they used to commit the crimes were very secret, they had not been discovered by the relevant departments for a long time.
Upon hearing that these people were not the killers behind the serial murders, Nalan Wuxia and Qin Haodong were disappointed. However, the fact that they had solved such a serious organ trafficking case was also a great honor.
Qin Haodong asked, “What about the people whose organs have been excised by you?”
Fatty Dragon said, “To prevent being discovered, those people were handed over directly to the people who took their organs. Then, they were thrown into the sea to feed the fish.”
“Asshole! How can you even do this kind of thing for money!”
Nalan Wuxia slapped Fatty Dragon across the face and then called two policemen to take him away. She would use him as bait to arrest all the criminals who were waiting to take their goods.
Qin Haodong approached Lu Fei and said in a cold voice, “As a surgeon director, how could you do this kind of thing? Do you still deserve to be a doctor?”
By now, Qin Haodong had recovered his original appearance. Now that he did not look like Tang Feng, Lu Fei didn’t recognize him. He thought Qin Haodong was an undercover cop and thus said, “I had no choice. A few years ago, I gambled all my assets away, so I owed millions in debt. If I didn’t pay back the money, those people would chop off my hands.
Then, Fatty Dragon paid off my debt, so I followed him.”
Qin Haodong used Mind-Manipulation again and asked, “Did you hear about the murders that happened in Jiangnan City a few days ago? Did those murders have anything to do with you?”
Lu Fei shook his head and said, “I don’t know. I didn’t do anything.”
“What did you do when you went to the archive of Guangren Hospital to look up the patients’ files? Did that have anything to do with reselling human organs?”
Lu Fei said, “No. It was all normal work. Although working with Fatty Dragon earned me a lot of money, I still needed a formal job to fool the public so that I wouldn’t be questioned.”
Qin Haodong looked back at Nalan Wuxia and said, “It seems that Lu Fei isn’t the murderer. This has nothing to do with him.”
Qin Haodong said that with a heavy heart. There had been two major suspects before: Lu Fei and Fang Yuqi. Now that Lu Fei had been cleared of any suspicion, the only suspect was Fang Yuqi. In his mind, he didn’t want to discover that this beautiful doctor was the murderer.
Nalan Wuxia asked her people to take Lu Fei away and then said, “It’s alright. At least we cracked a criminal case this time and put an end to a gang that sold human organs.
These people have done so many things that are against reason and nature. This case is also very serious compared to the murders.”
Qin Haodong said, “Tomorrow, we will still have one day to search. Let’s focus on Fang Yuqi. I hope it’s not her.”
Nalan Wuxia said, “Why? Is it because she is a beautiful woman?”
“Even though she is beautiful, you’re prettier than her, aren’t you?” Qin Haodong smiled at Nalan Wuxia and then said seriously, “I hope she isn’t the murderer because I think she is a good doctor!”
Nalan Wuxia wanted to speak, but her cell phone suddenly rang. When she answered the phone, her expression changed greatly. She then told Qin Haodong, “Bad news. The fourth murder has happened.”
Qin Haodong, who was also surprised, said, “So fast? Shouldn’t it have happened in another day?”
Nalan Wuxia said, “The three-day frequency is just our speculation based on the previous murders. It seems that the speculation is wrong. The murderer does not follow this rule.”
Qin Haodong said, “Let’s hurry up and have a look. Maybe we can find a clue to solve the case.”
Nalan Wuxia divided the crime squad into two teams. One team would stay here and wait for the organ trafficking gang, and the other team would follow them quickly to the scene of the crime.
It was nearly two o’clock in the morning. When they arrived at the scene, the local police station had already put up yellow tape to protect the scene.
The location was a large-scale hardware store. The owner of the store, who was about 50 years old, was shivering and looked pale. It seemed that he was really scared.
Nalan Wuxia and Qin Haodong showed their identities and entered the hardware store, which was filled with the smell of blood. They saw a young man in his 30s lying in a pool of blood with a big opening in his chest. The forensic expert was busy performing the autopsy.
Nalan Wuxia asked, “Where do things stand?”
When the forensic expert looked up and saw that the captain had arrived, he said, “It’s almost same as the previous cases. The technique is basically the same. However, this time, the lung of the victim is missing. The estimated time of death is two hours ago.”
Nalan Wuxia scolded angrily. However, she could not lose her senses right now. She turned around and asked the policeman who was on duty, “Who reported it? Who saw the scene first?”
“It was me!”
The boss came, his body trembling.
Nalan Wuxia said, “Don’t be afraid. Tell us about the situation briefly.”
The shopkeeper said, “Today, many relatives from my hometown come to visit me. After dinner, I didn’t have enough rooms to stay at home, so I planned to go to my shop to sleep for the night. When I opened the door, I unexpectedly saw a dead man on the floor. On the floor was nothing but blood, which scared me badly, so I immediately called the police.”
“What about the time? How long has it been?”
The shopkeeper took his cell phone out, looked at it, and said, “About an hour.”
Then, Qin Haodong also checked the scene. He noticed that there was a bright red Invoking Figure Talisman on the floor tiles about half a meter away from the dead man’s head. There was no soul under the Invoking Figure Talisman this time either.
After Nalan Wuxia checked out the situation, she immediately issued an order to check the security monitoring system footage in the store and the area within a 500-meter radius, focusing on the suspects who had showed up two hours ago.
The shopkeeper said, “I have a security monitoring system in the store. In order to prevent thieves, I installed a super high-definition camera with a night vision function.”
Nalan Wuxia said eagerly, “Show us.”
The shopkeeper led Nalan Wuxia and the others to his room and opened the door, only to see that the computer on the desk had been split apart. The mainframe box had been opened, and the hard disk used to store the monitoring video data had been removed. It seemed that the murderer had been prepared to take it.
Suddenly, a technician came over with a notebook. “Captain, I have access to the monitoring website of the Municipal Bureau. I can see the monitoring information of the cameras of the Municipal Bureau at any time. There is just a monitoring point set by us on the opposite side of the hardware store.”
“Let me see the video!”
Nalan Wuxia spoke urgently. Although the monitoring camera of the Municipal Public Security Bureau could only record the outside of the store, they could check whether any suspicious people had passed by.
The technician turned on the computer and retrieved the monitoring storage data from the camera on the opposite side of the hardware store. Soon, the video began to play.
Since the selected time period started at midnight, there were few pedestrians and vehicles on the street. In order to save time, Nalan Wuxia told the technician to directly speed up the video ten times.
As they played the video, they saw a shadow flash across the screen.
Qin Haodong’s expression suddenly changed and he cried, “Stop, it’s here! Slow down and replay it!”
When the technician replayed the video, they saw a woman slowly appear. Impressively, it was Fang Yuqi, who had just said goodbye to him.
Fang Yuqi was not deliberate, like she had been during the day. Instead, she was holding a black bag in her hand and she looked flustered as she walked in a hurry. Soon, she disappeared from sight.
Qin Haodong’s mind was preoccupied. What he had been worried about had finally happened. Lu Fei was not the murderer, and Fang Yuqi had appeared near the scene of the crime. Now, it seemed that she was probably the murderer.
Nalan Wuxia was also obviously aware of this. She looked at Qin Haodong and nodded. Then, she turned to her subordinates and said, “The woman is Fang Yuqi, a doctor working at Guangren Hospital. Tell the technical department to check her whereabouts and arrest her immediately.”
Fang Yuqi’s phone number had been put on record in the technical department, so her location was quickly found. About half an hour later, she was taken to the interrogation room of the Criminal Police Unit.
Qin Haodong changed his expression and sat in the interrogation position with Nalan Wuxia.
Fang Yuqi was sitting on an iron stool, her face pale and flustered. Her white long skirt had been torn at several places, and there was still dark red blood on it.
Nalan Wuxia looked at her and said, “Doctor Fang, I didn’t expect that we would meet again here.”
Fang Yuqi just looked at Nalan Wuxia with a complex expression and did not speak.
Nalan Wuxia said, “Tell me what you did about an hour ago.”
“I… I…” After struggling for a while, Fang Yuqi cried, “Officer Nalan, I’m turning myself in!”
