“What's wrong? Why do you look so fl.u.s.tered?” Team Leader Liu said with a frown. He could already guess that something must have happened from the expression on that policeman's face.
“We've found a skeleton 500 meters ahead along the mountainside,” the policeman said and his eyes were filled with shock as he pointed with a trembling finger toward a small hill in front of them.
The trees here were lush and green and the air was chilly and cold.
Ye Hao paled the instant he heard the word 'body', and he felt like he was about to die, was as though an arrow had lodged itself inside his heart. His eyes suddenly widened and shock was written all over his eyes. He couldn't help but stumble backward and his legs suddenly gave way, so he almost fell onto the ground.
This news was like a bolt from the blue.
Team Leader Liu reached out to support him.
“Mr. Ye…” he said. “You said 'skeleton' and not 'body', right?” he asked. He could tell that Ye Hao had mistakenly thought that they had found a body.
“Skeleton?” Ye Hao repeated numbly. His voice trembled because he was so anxious.
The policeman nodded and said, “Yes, Mr. Ye. We found the skeleton and we estimate that the time of death was more than six months ago, so it can't possibly be your ex-wife.”
The policeman further elaborated. This was his fault. He shouldn't have rushed in so hastily and now, he had accidentally given the family of the missing person such a fright.
Ye Hao placed his hand over his chest and slowly came back to his senses. He closed his eyes and let out a long exhale. However, he seemed even more worried and anxious when he opened his eyes again.
He balled his hands into fists and tried to calm himself down but no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't calm down. While he hoped that they'd be able to find clues that would lead to her, he was also afraid that the clues that they found would point to terrible news.
“Mr. Ye, don't worry. We'll continue searching for clues. Now that we've found a skeleton, I'll need to head over to settle this case first. Please head to the car to rest,” Team Leader Liu said as he opened the car door.
Then, he followed the policeman to the area where he had discovered the skeleton.
This hill was 200 meters tall and the skeleton was discovered halfway along the mountain in the middle of a patch of tall gra.s.s. This skeleton would not have been discovered if one hadn't been carefully combing the area.
The white bones seemed very frightening and there was no flesh left on this skeleton. They couldn't even find a single strand of hair lying around.
The skeleton was wearing a tattered rosy red dress and there was a pair of female leather shoes next to the skeleton.
This scene was enough to send chills down one's spine.
The forensic expert made his primary a.n.a.lysis: the skeleton was a woman around the ages of 25 to 30. She was around 165 CM and had been dead for around 8 to 10 months. The cause of death was unclear but this was just the place where her body had been dumped and it was likely not the scene of the murder.
The policeman combed the area around the skeleton but due to the length of time that had pa.s.sed, they were unable to find any useful leads. This skeleton was then taken away by the policemen of Haichuan County.
The search continued for another two days and the policemen had only stumbled upon a female corpse. As for He Xiyan, they didn't find a single useful clue, neither did they find her phone, her clothes, accessories, or any suspicious vehicles at the scene.
There was a man who was extremely anxious and worried over the past two days that the search was taking place and had almost collapsed when he heard about the discovery of the female corpse.
