YEN BAI — Police are looking for a man suspected to be involved in the murder of a four-member family in the northern mountainous Yen Bai Province, the local police said this morning.
The Van Yen District police said the suspect, 27-year-old Dang Van Hung, was a neighbour of the victims in Lam Giang Commune in the district.
Hung, who was carrying a gun, fled into the forest with his girlfriend.
Hung murdered the four persons with a large knife yesterday evening, when the victims were working in a paddy field.
The four victims comprised a married couple, their child and the wife's sister.
Initial investigation by the local police said a land dispute was probably the motive behind the murders. — VNS
