"Hello, this is the 110 police emergency platform."
"Hello, I want to make a police report. A woman was killed on Mopan Road in Shiqiao Town."
"Excuse me, when did it happen? Could you please provide your contact information and surname right now?"
"My name isChunqin. I’m the woman who was killed. I died tragically!"
A strange call broke the peace at the beginning of the new year.
Today was the first day of Chinese New Year. Most of the policemen had gone home for the New Year. OnlyLinQiupu, Lin Dongxue and a few other policemen were at their posts. The main reason was that the two of them didn’t need to be reunited with their family. Lin Dongxue never thought much of New Year. Instead of eating instant noodles at home alone or going to their paternal aunt’s or maternal aunt’s family to join in the festivities, it’s better to earn overtime pay.
During Chinese New Year, every floor in the bureau was empty. When the police officers were not dispatched, everyone would sit in a circle, shelling melon seeds, drinking tea, and chatting. The atmosphere was peaceful.
Chen Shi had alsocometoday and brought her some food, which made her feel very blessed.
When everyone was talking about the Spring Festival Gala show from last night, the front desk officer knocked on the door, came in and said a few words to Lin Qiupu. Lin Qiupu nodded and said to everyone after she left, "The first alarm call in the year 2019. Let's listen!"
After listening to the call recording, everyone was stunned. Lin Dongxue frowned. "This is a prank, right? Someone must have too much time on their hands over the holiday. Shiqiao Town is so far away. Should we make a special trip just to confirm?"
"I also think it's a prank. How could the deceased call the police themselves? It's definitely fake." Old Zhang said confidently.
"Old Chen, what do you think?" Lin Dongxue asked.
Chen Shi said casually, "Isn’t it enough to call Shiqiao Town and ask? See if there’s a dead person named Chunqin."
"Do you think this is true, or do you hope it is true?" Lin Dongxue teased.
"I don't hope for anything. I'm just afraid of that one in ten thousandth possibility." Chen Shi smiled.
Lin Qiupu also agreed with Chen Shi’s opinion. Verifying it wouldn’t take much effort, so he dialed the number for the Shiqiao Town Public Security Bureau. Receiving a call from the criminal police team from headquarters on the first day of the new year, they were both nervous and respectful. Lin Qiupucalmlyasked, "Is there a dead person namedChunqinover there?"
"Captain Lin, you... how did you know?"
LinQiupuwas surprised and turned the speakerphone on. He responded, "Just now we received a police call and the other party joked that she was Chunqin and that she had been killed on Mopan Road in your town. Did such a thing happen?"
"Three months ago, a woman named Chunqin was indeed raped and killed there."
