Killing suspect suicides

A MAN who was suspected of killing six villagers and injuring another committed suicide in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, local police said yesterday.

The body of the suspect, Wen Tieshuan, 46, was found in a cave in a mountainous area about 10am yesterday, said a police spokesman.

He did not reveal how Wen ended his life.

Six villagers were found killed on Thursday night in the Lijiaershihao Village in Qingshuihe County, the spokesman said.

The victims were a married couple and individuals from five other families, but no other details were given.

About 700 police had been searching for Wen, who disappeared after the killings.

Wen had three children, aged from six to 16, and his wife was deaf, said the spokesman.

Wen's elder brother, who was not named, said Wen was introverted, but usually got on well with his fellow villagers.
