The old man’s eyes were full of disbelief until the officer took out more relevant evidence and testimonies to support this claim. The senior could not help collapsing back onto a seat with pain written all over his face!
It was his fault for not teaching her right!
He wondered how undeserving he was to have such a shameless daughter.
He fretted restlessly in front of the young police officer as the latter listed off Yun Na’s crimes. He was so ashamed!
His wife knew about these things, but she did not tell him.
In the end, the mother-daughter pair could only blame themselves for their miserable plight!
His daughter was punished for her greed and selfishness, where she harmed others for her personal benefits. As for her mother, she met a sorrowful death due to this unfilial daughter.
The old man could not think straight; there was too much for him to chew on.
Heartache, fury, bewilderment, and a sense of loss overwhelmed him all at once!
The more he thought about it, the worse he felt about his daughter’s ugly deeds.
Thus, the case was closed in this manner.
The police could find the woman’s body but not the girl’s. Her body was probably lost in the sea for good!
The police told him, “Searching for a body in the vast Eastern Sea is like looking for a needle in a haystack! Even if the body hasn’t rotted fully, the fishes would’ve fed on it. The search cost will be too hefty to consider. Your wife’s body was discovered by chance. We’ll try our best to find your daughter’s body, but there’s no guarantee!”
“What about the culprit?” asked the senior; his voice had turned hoarse and sullen by then. “When will the police bring in the one who murdered my wife and daughter?”
The police replied, “He was killed in a gang clash before we had a chance to apprehend him. All his accomplices were killed alongside him!”
The officer explained that the criminal had gotten into a terrible crossfire with a rival gang. “Li Dongqiang, thirty-five, was attacked by an unidentified group in his underground den two nights prior. The place was bloody by the time we arrived at the scene. There wasn’t a survivor!” The police then laid out the images they took at the scene before the old man.
“Is there such a thing still?!” The senior could not contain his astonishment.
“Mr. Yun, you have my condolences.” After consoling him, the officer left.
Yun Yecheng sat absentmindedly on the bench for a very long time.
Yun Shishi was on set when she received his call. She, too, fell into a trance-like state for some time.
The case was brewing with such intensity at first, so she reckoned that it would drag on for a while. She did not expect this abrupt ending!
With the case closed, the old man cleared the necessary procedures and brought the body back for cremation.
The man neither held any funeral nor told anyone about it. The body was quietly sent to the crematorium to be burned.
Actually, he still had his grudges over her, but despite his misgivings, she was still his wife. Now that she was dead, he would let his anger be buried along with her wrongdoings!
Yun Shishi bought a burial plot at Mount Wulan. A plot like this in the crowded capital did not come cheap.
