The FBI confirmed that a suspect in connection to the double homicide of two teens in Arcadia, California, was taken into custody in Hong Kong on Jan. 23, 2016. Deyun Shi was arrested upon arrival in Hong Kong after boarding a plane to China on Jan. 22. His vehicle was recovered by the investigators at Los Angeles International Airport.
The two teenagers aged 15 and 16 were found dead by their parents in the 400 block of Fairview Avenue. Authorities believe that the 44-year-old suspect, who is also a family member, might have had a hand in the death of the siblings.
According to the Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies the parents of the victims had gone to check on their aunt who had been attacked by her husband, Shi, in a domestic dispute. The aunt had a restraining order against the suspect and is reported to have initiated divorce proceedings against him. Upon returning, the teen’s parents found the two brothers dead and there were “signs of forced entry,” according to ABC7.com.
The suspect is then reported to have boarded the China-bound flight on Jan. 22, 2016. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a blunt object might have been used in the murder. Although the homicide investigators have not officially released the names of the victims, friends and neighbors have identified the teens as William and Antony Lin.
