On January 28, 2023, the dead body of Hu Xinyu, who had been missing for 106 days, was suddenly discovered. According to reports, someone found a hanged corpse in the woods in the Jinjishan area of Hekou Town. The deceased was Hu Xinyu, a high school student at Zhiyuan Middle School in Qianshan County, Shangrao, Jiangxi Province.

Hu Xinyu was a freshman in Zhiyuan Middle School in Qianshan County and native of Qianshan County, Shangrao, Jiangxi Province, born in July 2007. On the evening of October 14, 2022, Hu Xinyu disappeared from school, which aroused widespread concern in the society. As of January 28 this year, Hu Xinyu had been missing for 106 days.


On January 7, 2023, the public security organization of Shangrao City, Jiangxi Province issued a notice stating that they placed great importance on missing Hu Xinyu. After the police received the report on October 15, 2022, they started setting up a search group. On November 20, 2022, almost ten thousand people composed of volunteers and public security officers in the provincial, city, and county levels searched for those few months. No trace evidence of Hu Xinyu’s murder, suicide, or accident in the school was found. Based on the existing information, it is pointed out that Hu Xinyu left school on his own, and he is trying his best to search for it.


But the family members could not accept this statement, and still searched for Hu Xinyu everywhere through the missing persons notice. The family members received clues from many people. Since January 20, they have searched for Hu Xinyu in several places near Zhiyuan Middle School, but nothing new was found.

On the morning of the 29th, Zheng Xiaojing said that the suspected body of Hu Xinyu was found yesterday. A man walking past by trees stumbled across the hung up body on one of the tree. On the morning of the 29th, through DNA identification, the body was indeed that of Hu Xinyu. The police found that the clothes of the deceased were the same as when Hu Xinyu disappeared. A recording pen was found at the scene and has been sent to a professional organization for identification. Investigation and inspection work is underway and relevant information will be announced to the public in a timely manner.

Zheng Xiaojing said that she submitted the application to turn the case into a criminal investigation. She also said that as a lawyer entrusted by Hu Xinyu’s family, she is deeply saddened and will apply for access to relevant case materials in the future to assist relevant departments and family members to restore the truth.
