When she heard her words, Nalan Wuxias face suddenly changed and her heart leaped wildly. She asked again, "Are you sure that you committed this crime?"
"I did it, but Officer Nalan"
Fang Yuqi was about to say something when the door of the interrogation room opened. A scout came in and put a transparent plastic bag on the interrogation room table. There was a scalpel in the bag with some dried blood on it.
The scout said, "Captain, it was found in her house!"
Qin Haodong sighed secretly in his heart. The skirt was stained with blood, the scalpel was stained with blood, and Fang Yuqis earlier confession could basically prove that she had done it.
Two surgical directors working at Guangren Hospital were criminals. Lu Fei had gone astray because of gambling, but they didnt know why Fang Yuqi had done this.
Nalan Wuxia picked up the plastic bag and asked, "Is this yours?"
Fang Yuqi nodded and said, "Its mine!"
Nalan Wuxia asked, "Did you use this scalpel to kill?"
"What? Hes dead?" Fang Yuqi panicked again and cried, "No way, no way! Its impossible!"
Nalan Wuxia said angrily, "What are you talking about? You cut off both his lungs. How could he not die? Tell me where you put the lungs you removed from the dead man."
Fang Yuqi said in astonishment, "Officer, what are you talking about? Removal? Lungs? I just nicked his arm twice. How could he die?"
"You are talking nonsense!" Nalan Wuxia cried, "Fang Yuqi, we have sufficient evidence now. The blood of the dead man is still on your clothes. You cant escape the responsibility for this crime. Just admit your guilt!"
Fang Yuqi said anxiously, "I can confess and try to be treated with leniency, but I really didnt remove his lungs. I just nicked him twice on his arm"
Nalan Wuxia still wanted to say something, but Qin Haodong had realized that something was wrong. "Let me talk with her," he said.
He turned to look at Fang Yuqi and asked by using Mind-Manipulation, "Did you commit the murder in the hardware store?"
Fang Yuqi said, "Murder? I dont know what you are talking about. I really didnt kill anybody."
"What did you do at the hardware store after midnight?"
Fang Yuqi said, "Tonight, I went out to dinner with my friends and then I went home to watch TV for a while. When I decided to take a bath and go to bed, I suddenly realized I was menstruating and I was out of sanitary pads, so I had to go out to buy some. I passed by the hardware store on my way."
Qin Haodong asked, "Why didnt you drive when you went out alone at night? Werent you afraid of danger?"
Fang Yuqi said, "There is a convenience store near my home, so I didnt need to drive. However, it was too late, and the convenience store was closed.
I knew there was a 24-hour convenience store near the hardware store, so I went there. I didnt think it was far, so I didnt go back to get my car."
By now, Qin Haodong had determined that this crime had not been committed by Fang Yuqi. However, at the same time, he was very confused. Why was there blood on her scalpel? Why had Fang Yuqi surrendered?
He asked again, "Why was there blood on your scalpel? Why did you surrender?"
Fang Yuqi said, "I have lived alone for many years, and sometimes I am afraid when I go out, so I always put a scalpel in my bag.
After I bought the pads, I suddenly met a drunken rogue on my way back. He grabbed me and was about to pull me into the nearby trees in an effort to rape me.
At the time, I was so scared that I took out the scalpel and nicked his arm. It only created two scars. It did not go deep. I did not want to kill him.
I was free after he was nicked, so I ran away. However, I was caught by the police as soon as I got home. I said I wanted to turn myself in because I stabbed the rogue. If he hadnt attacked me, I wouldnt have stabbed him."
After hearing Fang Yuqis words, Qin Haodong was relieved. Although the story was dramatic, it made sense. Although the case had not yet been solved, he was very pleased that he had kept a good doctor safe.
He turned to look at Nalan Wuxia and said, "It seems that you have arrested the wrong person. Doctor Fang was not the murderer."
Nalan Wuxia leaned on the chair, patted her forehead, and said, "So it was a coincidence."
Suddenly, the technician pushed the door and walked in again. Then, he told Nalan Wuxia, "Captain, we just conducted a blood type comparison. The blood on the suspects body is the same as the blood on the scalpel, but its not the same as the blood type of the dead man, so one can preliminarily say that she is not the murderer."
Nalan Wuxia said, "Although Doctor Fang stabbed a rogue, she was acting in self-defense. Take her back immediately and turn over her case to the local police station. Ask them to search for the rogue in the nearby hospital. We have no manpower to deal with such a small case."
After assigning jobs, Nalan Wuxia led Qin Haodong back to her office. Upon entering the room, she sat down on the chair and didnt move anymore. She had been investigating this case for a long time. Even though she was a warrior of Covert Power, her energy was limited. She hasnt slept for more than two days. Now, she felt exhausted.
"Are you tired?"
Qin Haodong approached her from behind and helped her massage her shoulders and neck and recover her tired body with the Green Wood Genuine Qi.
"Oh! Thats so comfortable!"
Nalan Wuxia groaned lightly, leaning directly against Qin Haodongs arms and enjoying the rare warmth and comfort.
After a while, she opened her eyes and said, "Haodong, you are so skillful in massages. I really want to be massaged by you all my life!"
Qin Haodongs massage was not only unique in technique, but it also contained extremely pure Green Wood Genuine Qi. In only a short time, her fatigue was eliminated and her energy was restored.
Qin Haodong laughed and said, "Thats okay, but my service is very expensive."
"How expensive can it be? If I gave myself to you, would it be enough?"
Nalan Wuxia stretched her neck and looked up at Qin Haodong. With this unique posture, her chest stood out.
"Well Who do you think is the murderer in this case?"
Qin Haodong hurriedly changed the topic. When he faced so many girls advances, he didnt know what to do. Sometimes, he imagined that it would be better if he was still in the Cultivation World, where he could marry who he loved as long as he wanted to. Unfortunately, the monogamy system was implemented here. Even if he wanted to marry them, he didnt know these girls thoughts.
Nalan Wuxia glanced at him with a reproachful look, sat upright and said, "This case is really giving me a headache. The murderer is neither Lu Fei nor Fang Yuqi. Could it be the old Taoist?"
Qin Haodong said, "Even if this has something to do with the old Taoist, he couldnt have done it alone. The old Taoist couldnt have gotten the information about the patients in the hospital."
Nalan Wuxia said, "Do you think its possible that the old Taoist colluded with the people at the hospital to commit the crime?"
"Its possible, but the criminal in the hospital should not have only inquired about the files, but also have been responsible for the organ removal of the victims. Besides, it has to be a left-handed doctor. At present, only Lu Fei and Fang Yuqi meet the two criteria, but they are not the murderers.
Is it possible that we are in the wrong direction? If its just a coincidence that those three people have been treated at Guangren Hospital, maybe there is someone else, or maybe a doctor at another hospital removed their organs."
Nalan Wuxia thought for a moment and said, "Although theres a slim chance, it is still possible. I will confirm with the technical department if the dead man in the hardware store was once treated at Guangren Hospital. That could prove if this was just a coincidence."
Then, she picked up her cell phone and dialed the technical departments phone. "Im Nalan Wuxia. Did you find out about the victim? Is there any useful information?" she asked.
The technical department answered, "He is a 28-year-old resident of the East District of Jiangnan City. We did not find any information related to the former case."
Nalan Wuxia asked, "Was he ever treated at Guangren Hospital?"
After checking for a while, the technical department answered, "Yes, last July, the dead had an appendicitis operation at Guangren Hospital."
Upon hanging up the phone, Nalan Wuxia looked at Qin Haodong and said, "You heard that. This means that we are in the right direction. The killer must be a doctor at Guangren Hospital, or a member of the gang is the doctor at Guangren Hospital. It seems that you need to continue your secret investigation there."
Qin Haodong frowned and said, "But the left-handed surgeons who have inquired about patients information in the archive are only Lu Fei and Fang Yuqi. Since they are not the murderer, who could be the murderer?"
Nalan Wuxia said, "There must be something that we didnt find. As long as we find this clue, the case will be solved."
"Ill go to the hospital tomorrow and think about it. Lets analyze the case from another perspective," Qin Haodong said, "Did you find that there is another law in this case?"
Nalan Wuxia said, "What? Now, even the time of the crime has changed. I dont see any laws."
"The murderer has now killed four people in a row. The organs that have been removed are the heart, liver, kidney and lungs. If a spleen is added, all the five organs of human beings will be included. Is this a coincidence, or is it intentional? Did he kill so many people just to get the five organs?
Based on this rule, the next thing he would do was remove the spleen of his next victim.
Nalan Wuxia said, "I didnt pay attention to it. I thought he killed people just to sell organs. Now, it seems that its not so simple. Through these four cases, we can see that the money of the victims was not stolen, which shows that the murderer is not after money.
Generally speaking, there are only a few reasons for killing someone, such as love, revenge or money. At present, these reasons are not applicable to these serial killings. So what is the culprits purpose? Is he a psycho who just kills for fun?"
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, "Thats impossible. If the murderer was a psycho, he would kill people at will. He wouldnt have possibly gone to Guangzhou Hospital to look up the records in the archive, let alone take turns to remove the five major internal organs."
"Gathering the five internal organs of human beings is the initial purpose of the murderer. As for the reason, only the murderer knows if its just for fun or for other purposes."
Nalan Wuxia said, "Although it can be inferred that the next victims spleen will be removed, this is not very useful for solving the case. We need to know where he will commit the crime, or who he is going to kill."
After listening to her, Qin Haodong suddenly felt that he had found something. However, he couldnt be sure for a while.
