 The victim was forced to call home to call the police and was killed by Lao Rongzhi

Lao Rongzhi didnt make any noise. He ran away and left quietly with the police.

At about 11:00 a.m. on November 28, 2019, Lao Rongzhi, the suspect with seven lives, was taken away by the police in Caitang square, Dongbai, Xiamen.

From 1996 to 1999, Lao Rongzhi used the method of immortal jump to commit crimes with her boyfriend, yingduo, and killed seven people successively. After the fall of faziying, the earliest trace that can be traced is that she appeared in Xiamen in 2016 under the pseudonym of Shirley.

Today (December 3), Xiamen police announced that the trace of Lao Rongzhi was found through big data information research. Since she and faziying committed the first murder, she has embarked on a road of no return.

Commit murder

On July 29, 1996, Lao Rongzhi, a singer and dancer in Nanchang, hooked a rich man into a temporary rental house. Faziying takes out a knife and forces the man named Xiong Qiyi to call home, but at the moment when he grabs the phone, Xiong Qiyi attempts to report the crime and is killed by faziying. The two men searched out the key to the dead man. Faziying goes to the house of the dead, grabs more than 200000 cash, kills the mother and daughter, and ransacks the property.

After the incident, the police searched the two mens residence and found a list of the most prominent individual bosses in Nanchang. Police speculated that both were the targets of the crime.

According to faziying, he and Lao Rongzhi later killed two people in Wenzhou.

At the end of June 1999, faziying and Lao Rongzhi arrived in Hefei, where they planned to kidnap and kill people. On July 22, faziying ordered a steel cage in the electric welding shop of baidama. Lao Rongzhi uses his pseudonym to sit on the stage in a song and dance hall in Hefei and looks for Yin Jianhua, the kidnapper. In the morning, Lao Rongzhi called Yin Jianhua to lure him to his rental office. Faziying forces Yin Jianhua with a sharp knife and locks his hands and feet into the steel cage.

In order to make Yin Jianhua believe that he is a kidnapper and hand over his property as soon as possible, faziying, in the name of having carpentry work to do, tricked Lu Zhongming, a carpenter, into tying up his rented house and then killed him.

Under the threat of faziying, Yin Jianhua wrote two notes to his wife, Liu Mou, asking Liu to pay for the ransom. At about 10 a.m. on July 23, faziying strangled Yin Jianhua with wire. After that, faziying came to the Yin family with a homemade pistol and note and asked Liu for 10000 yuan. Liu asked him to wait at home to raise money and then reported the case to the police.

Police arrived and surrounded faziying. Faziying shoots from time to time. So the police fired a tear gas into the room. At 12:10 p.m. that day, faziying could not stand the smoke. She ran out with a gun and was caught by the police who shot her right leg and caught one revolver and four bullets on the spot.

Twenty years later, when a reporter from the Beijing News visited Hefei, his neighbor, Mr. Dai, remembered that the whole alley smelled so bad that a neighbor turned the second floor into the house and found that someone died there. Shortly after the crime, the landlord sold the property and now opened a small hotel.

On December 28, 1999, faziying was shot, but Lao Rongzhi fled.

Early years

Lao Rongzhi, born in 1974, grew up in an old community in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province. Her neighbor recalled to the Beijing news that Lao Rongzhi was the youngest child in her family, with two elder brothers and two elder sisters.

In 1989, after graduating from junior high school, Lao Rongzhi was admitted to Jiujiang normal school.

Xiao Qi, an alumnus and later colleague of Lao Rongzhi, told the Beijing news that in that year, his academic performance was very good: Jiujiangs key high school is Jiujiang No. And Jiujiang normal schools admission results are much higher than Jiujiang No. 1 middle school.

After many years, seeing the picture when Lao Rongzhi was caught, Xiao Qi recognized her at one glance: her appearance has not changed.

Compared with Wang Hong (pseudonym) of the first generation of Lao Rongzhi, Lao Rongzhi was more than 1.6 meters tall, spoke softly and looked outstanding.

Xiaoqi recalled that Lao Rongzhis kindergarten major was the key major of Jiujiang normal school. At the time of check-in, the students sang and danced on the stage and performed their talents. The teacher in the kindergarten is looking down. Only the students with good face, gentle personality and affinity can be selected into the kindergarten. Lao Rongzhi was selected as the only kindergarten class of grade 1989 because of her beautiful appearance and good figure.

In 1992, after graduation, Lao Rongzhi was assigned to teach in the childrens School of Jiujiang oil branch. In the memory of his colleague Wang Qiang (pseudonym), Lao Rongzhi can get a salary of two or three hundred yuan a month when he teaches primary school Chinese at school.

But Lao Rongzhi left after only a year or so. Xiaoqi can only remember that she left very suddenly. In 1993, when the summer vacation began, Lao Rongzhi didnt come to work. After asking the director, she knew that she resigned: in the 1990s, it was popular to go to the sea to do business. At that time, we all thought that she also went to do business.

According to faziyings confession, in 1994, Lao Rongzhi got to know faziying. In the impression of Lao Rongzhis second brother, Lao Jun (a pseudonym), Lao Rongzhi had never been in love with faziying before. Laojun remembers that when laorongzhi mentioned her love affair with faziying to her family, they asked Laojun to inquire about faziyings conduct, but he didnt.

After Lao Rongzhi left Jiujiang, he seldom contacted his family. A few years later, she and faziying committed crimes in Hefei, Nanchang and other places. The process and details of the case were also learned from the newspapers by her family.

If she had contacted us, we would have let her turn herself in. Lao Jun said.


At present, there is no exact information to fully outline the 20-year escape trajectory of Lao Rongzhi. According to Xiamen police, after 1999, Lao Rongzhi absconded with many false names and fled to different cities to earn a living by doing odd jobs in bars and KTV.

Before the arrest, Lao Rongzhi used to haunt the real love bar, a 4S shop of an automobile brand, and the watch counter of Dongbai Caitang square. The three places are all about 6km apart, forming a triangle, forming the life map of Lao Rongzhi here, and quietly hiding in the main urban area of Xiamen City.

In 2016, Lao Rongzhi worked as a customer service in the real love bar on Dang Road, Yun District, Siming District, Xiamen City, under the pseudonym Sherry and made a living selling wine. Here, its not so much that no one knows her real name as that no one cares about her real name.

The staff of the bar said that Lao Rongzhi was the only one who gave himself an English name. Bars often have foreigners in and out. A simple English name is obviously easier to remember than a Chinese name.

Xiao Zhou has worked in the bar for several years, and is the only employee in the bar who has more contact with Lao Rongzhi at present.

When she was there, I was a waiter, she was a customer service. Xiao Zhou explained that the waiter served wine to the guests, while the customer service was to accompany the guests to drink wine and get a commission. If the guests consume 1000 yuan, the customer service can earn about 80 yuan. But many times its more than 1000. The most expensive bottle of wine in the store costs more than 20000.

Lao Rongzhi can dress up. She looks only in her 30s, which is the impression of the bar staff. Sherry is very popular with people over 30 or 40, Zhou recalled. Her performance is very high. Generally, she can get about 10000 yuan a month. Its high here Its Sherrys friend who reported before coming. Even if the Commission is on her head, sometimes several tables in the evening are hers.

Through the interviewees, the reporter of Beijing news got her wechat. The wechat name is Amoy Sherry, and her personal signature is never learn to lie to make you happy, scale, mirror, and bank card balance. The day before she was arrested, she was still publishing the news.

After leaving the true love bar, Lao Rongzhi tried to sell cars to a brand 4S shop.

On December 2, a reporter from the Beijing News visited the 4S shop on the spot. The staff disclosed to the reporter of the Beijing news that if they could bring guests to buy a car, the shop would give an introduction fee of about 500 yuan.

The person in charge of the 4S store at that time recalled to the reporter of Beijing news that Lao Rongzhi did come to the store. When the news came that Lao Rongzhi was caught, his back was cold.

She claims to have friends who want to buy new energy vehicles, about a million or so. At that time, each car sold for more than 100000 yuan, which was a small business of two million yuan. This person in charge introduced that she met and talked with Lao Rongzhi for half an hour at that time, and felt that she didnt know much about the professional knowledge of automobile, its a resource customer, not a real buyer. We see a lot of such people, as long as we offer. Later, Lao Rongzhi didnt bring any friends, so it didnt end.


Starting in 2019, Lao Rongzhi works in the watch counter on the first floor of Caitang square in Xiamen. Police confirmed that the counter was operated by a friend of Lao Rongzhi. In the middle of November 2019, a friend went out for many days and asked Lao Rongzhi to come to the counter to help until Lao Rongzhi was caught.

According to the information released by Xiamen police, on the afternoon of November 27, the police found that the woman suspected of Lao Rongzhi appeared in the area of Caitang square in Xiamen. At about 11:00 on November 28, Lao Rongzhi was arrested. After arriving at the case, Lao Rongzhi refused to admit his real identity. Through DNA comparison, the police quickly confirmed that he was exactly Lao Rongzhi.

On the afternoon of December 3, Xiamen police released the video footage of Lao Rongzhis capture and interrogation. The video shows Lao Rongzhi in a green coat and ponytail standing at a watch counter. Several plainclothes policemen stood beside Lao Rongzhi and communicated with him. One of the policemen showed his police ID card, and Lao Rongzhi followed the policeman to the exit of the shopping mall without quarreling or escaping.

At the trial, Lao refused to admit his true identity. The police finally confirmed the identity of Lao Rongzhi through DNA comparison. In the interrogation room, Lao Rongzhi sat on the chair with handcuffs, depressed, and suddenly lowered his head and covered his face with his hands.

After Lao Rongzhi was caught, he said he wanted to see his family and relatives. On December 1, several plainclothes policemen made several videos at home. The army prepared several clothes for him and bought some underwear and daily necessities for the police to bring to him.
