Subsequently, he opened the door of a black Porsche before getting into the driver&x2019;s seat. He bent over and it looked as though he was destroying something in the car.
The police officers then looked through the other supporting documents and realized that the person who had sent the parcel had also attached documents specifying who the owner of the Porsche was. The person had also included a document which turned out to be the service report of the Porsche for that year.
The last video was the most exciting one.
Huo Zhendong must not have known that Jiang Zhitong had installed a video recording device in his car at that time. As long as there was a moving object within its detection range, the hidden recording device would automatically turn on and start recording. Although it was only a short ten second video, it had already recorded the entire process of Huo Zhendong&x2019;s crime.
The police officers were even more puzzled after going through all of the evidences. Why would they suddenly receive a parcel containing all these pieces of evidence at the exact moment that they were trying to obtain evidence to charge Huo Zhendong for his crime?
Furthermore, this was the most comprehensive and solid list of evidence that they had ever received. Everything was properly sorted out and it seemed as though the person had already gotten everything ready for the police.
&x201C;Captain Lee, since we already have all these physical evidence, should we arrest Huo Zhendong now? If we continue to hesitate, we might lose him since he is already going abroad tomorrow!&x201D;
&x201C;I will ask for the superior&x2019;s approval now. Get the team ready to arrest Huo Zhendong.&x201D;
In the past, Jiang Zhitong had spent a lot of effort to gather all these evidence. As he had been seriously injured and was bedridden for a long time, he could only ask others to help him collect and compile these evidences.
He had only realized that Huo Zhendong and Fu Yahui had already eloped and moved abroad after gathering all the relevant evidence. Yun Xuan had then fallen ill not long after that and he had been busy taking care of her. He had also been focusing on building up the Cliffside Hotel as he waited for the right moment to come because he did not believe that Fu Yahui and Huo Zhendong would stay in hiding abroad for the rest of their lives.
He was supposed to teach Fu Yahui a lesson and get her to pay for her crimes, but he could not leave Yun Xuan alone on her dying bed.
Therefore, handing in the evidence that could incriminate Huo Zhendong and Fu Yahui would be the only thing that he could do for himself and his daughter.
At this time, Huo Zhendong had just entered the mountain villa.
As soon as he entered the villa, he saw Huo Yuxi, who was taking her medication, in the living room. &x201C;Daughter, have you packed your bags already? We will be going abroad tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Dad, are you sure&x2026;that the police officers have nothing that they can use to sue you?&x201D;
&x201C;Of course. Do you think that your father would be caught so easily with something as simple as this? Furthermore, what Fu Yahui did really has nothing to do with the two of us. The police have no reason to charge me for any crime,&x201D; Huo Zhendong replied confidently as he sat down on the sofa. &x201C;After we go overseas, I will find the best doctor there to treat you and we can start a new life there.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi did not feel happy at all.
She had such a terrible father and she really did not want to go overseas with him.
&x201C;Why are you showing that expression on your face? Do you detest your own father?&x201D; Huo Zhendong asked with a frown when he saw the fearful expression on Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face. &x201C;Everything that I am doing now is for your sake. Don&x2019;t you understand? That little shrewd from the Jiang family is hoping that the police will arrest me but I will not let her wish come true. I do not want to talk about this anymore. I am exhausted from being detained the whole day. I am just going to rest and relax now. Yuxi, I am warning you that you had better pack up your belongings today. We are leaving early in the morning tomorrow.&x201D;
After speaking, Huo Zhendong got up and went back to his bedroom.
Huo Yuxi stared at Huo Zhendong&x2019;s back as he returned to his own bedroom. She was extremely terrified. She did not want to go abroad with someone like him.
Huo Zhendong was soaking in his bathtub when the police came knocking at his front door.
Upon hearing the police siren, Huo Zhendong impatiently came out from the bathtub to put on some clothes before he went downstairs to open the front door for the police officers.
&x201C;Officer, how can I help you now?&x201D;
&x201C;Mr. Huo Zhendong, you are under arrest because we have reasons to suspect that you have been involved in the planning and execution of the murder of Mr. Jiang Zhitong. Please cooperate as we need to take you back to the police station for further investigation. This is the warrant for your arrest.&x201D;
Huo Zhendong could not help but sneer as soon as he heard what the police officer had just said. &x201C;Officer, I have already told you that I have nothing to do with this case. Aren&x2019;t you overreacting by trying to arrest me when it is already so late at night? I am not a suspect. I am just helping you with the investigation.&x201D;
&x201C;You were not a suspect earlier today, but you are now a suspect for the murder,&x201D; the police officer replied coldly. &x201C;We received a tip-off today. Did you destroy the brakes of a black Porsche car in the parking lot of Xingmu International Airport at about ten o&x2019;clock in the morning on the 23rd of April five years ago?&x201D;
After listening to the police officer&x2026;
Huo Zhendong started to panic.
However, he quickly regained his composure and continued to cover up his crime. &x201C;What are you talking about? Where is your evidence? You need evidence to arrest me!&x201D;
&x201C;Take him back to the police station now. He will be able to see all the evidence that he wants us to show him then.&x201D;
Huo Zhendong continued to struggle and refused to admit defeat as he resisted the arrest. He believed that the police officers were only trying to scare him, as he was certain that he had already destroyed all the evidence that could link him to the murder five years ago. He had already destroyed all the evidence!
Therefore, he still believed that he would be able to get out of this messy situation.
Huo Zhendong was brought into the interrogation room as soon as they arrived at the police station.
&x201C;Officer, are you sure that you have caught the right person? I have always been a law-abiding&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;We will not arrest an innocent person, but at the same time, we will also not let go of a criminal. Huo Zhendong, I advise you to cooperate with the police because we already have sufficient evidence to prove your guilt!&x201D;
&x201C;Where is your evidence? Show it to me. Don&x2019;t just tell me that you have it. If you cannot show me any evidence, I am going to sue you!&x201D; Huo Zhendong replied very arrogantly.
&x201C;Evidence? You want me to show you the evidence?&x201D; The police officer who was interrogating Huo Zhendong slowly took out one photograph after another as he placed them very neatly on the table in front of Huo Zhendong. The police officer then knocked on the table as he said, &x201C;This is the evidence that you have asked for. Is this enough for you? If this is not enough, I still have a high definition video recording of you committing the crime. So, is this enough?&x201D;
Huo Zhendong was shocked and felt extremely nervous upon seeing the photographs that were placed before him.
This was impossible. It was impossible!
&x201C;What now? Can you still be smug? Do you have nothing else to say now? Do you know that you could be sentenced to death for intentional homicide? I cannot believe that you still have the audacity to raise your voice at me!&x201D;
At this time, Huo Zhendong had already gone pale; it was obvious that he was finally panicking.
&x201C;It is entirely up to you if you want to cooperate with us or otherwise. Anyway, we already have a witness and all these evidence to charge you for the crime. You can continue to be as arrogant as you want and you can refuse to confess to your crime, but I would advise you to think carefully about whether you still have the right to do so!&x201D;
After speaking, the police officer leaned against the back of his chair without even looking at Huo Zhendong.
At this time, Huo Zhendong&x2019;s reaction was exactly the same as Fu Yahui&x2019;s reaction when she had first been detained. He thought that he would still be able to get away as long as he kept silent and refused to plead guilty.
Who gave him that courage?
After watching the police officers taking her father away, Huo Yuxi tried calling Huo Zhendong&x2019;s phone number in the middle of the night, but discovered then that his cell phone was turned off. She knew that the same thing that had happened to Fu Yahui would happen and that her father would no longer come back.
This&x2026;was probably what a broken family felt like.
Early the next morning, the media had already started sharing the news that Huo Zhendong had been arrested.
The netizens and public were not even surprised when they saw the news. Nobody believed that he would not have known about the source of the seven billion yuan that his wife had.
However, they did not know that the real reason why Huo Zhendong had been arrested was because of homicide.
Jiang Yuning received news from Lawyer Zou early in the morning, informing her that Huo Zhendong had been arrested because someone sent evidence to the police the previous night.
Wasn&x2019;t this a second sign that her father was still alive?
