Three months after the disappearance of a junior high school student (equivalent to a Japanese high school student) that occurred in China in the fall of last year (2022), the Chinese society is in an uproar. The body was found on January 28th.
However, it is not clear under what circumstances the bodies were found. Many suspect that the darkness of Chinese organ transplantation is behind it.
Police threatening to kill themselves
The missing junior high school student is 15-year-old Hu Xinyu, who has just entered a private preparatory school in Shangrao City, Jiangxi Province. He passed the entrance exam in 2022, and was supposed to receive a scholarship of 1,500 yuan every semester from September of the same year. His grades belonged to the top group in the county, and if he scored one more point in the exam, he would have received a scholarship of 2,000 yuan.
On the night of October 14th, he left the school dormitory and disappeared.
Hu Xinyu told his teachers and friends that it was difficult for him to keep up with his high school classes, and that he suffered from lack of sleep and concentration problems. In addition, he called his mother crying and complained that he wanted to return home, and it was said that he ran away from home with the intention of committing suicide. On the last page of his physics textbook, he scribbled, “What if I don’t survive?” On the day of his disappearance, after eating lunch in the cafeteria, he was also seen standing on the roof of the school building and staring into the distance.
