Thousands in the northeastern city of Changchun mourned during a candlelight vigil Tuesday night for a 2-month-old boy who officials say was strangled to death by a carjacker.
Xu Haobo was sleeping in the backseat of his parent’s SUV early Monday morning when his father stopped for a few minutes to turn on the heat in a store the family owned, authorities said.
“He left his kid in the car with the heat on, and he didn’t take the keys,” a bystander at the scene in Changchun later told TV reporters. “He was inside for a bit, and when he looked outside, there was nobody there.”
The baby’s unintended abduction captivated China and led to one of the largest manhunts in recent memory. By 7:30 Monday morning, provincial radio had broadcast a notice asking listeners to watch out for the family’s gray Toyota RAV4 and the infant.
On Tuesday morning, police reported, inspectors identified the stolen car in a residential parking lot 20 miles outside the city. The infant’s clothing was found nearby.
The search was suspended late Tuesday when Jilin province police announced that a suspect had turned himself in and confessed to strangling the child and dumping the body in the snow.
Residents in this community are speaking out against sentencing this monster to the death penalty and insisting that he spend the rest of his life in jail instead to face fellow inmates who they feel won’t let him off easy after finding out what he’s done.
