Dr. Jifeng Ding, his wife and their two teenage daughters were found at their home on May 1st of this year. Post mortem analysis found that all four had been stabbed to death. According to the BBC, police have released new CCTV footage of Anxiang Du on April 29th at Coventry railway station on 10.00 am, Birmingham New Street station at 10.50 am and at Northampton bus station at 12.50 pm. Since then he has gone missing. A Vauxhall Corsa that the family had rented and had gone missing after the murder has since been found on Venables street in North London.  The investigation is now focused there.

It is reported that Anxiang Du, a business man, recently lost a court case against the Dings on their joint herbal remedy business.  The police think that despite what appears to be a  suicide note left to his family Du is still alive and is on the run with a large amount of cash.  It is also possible that he has already left the country.  There is now a reward of £10,000 for information that will lead to his capture.

Dr. Jifeng Ding was reported to be a well respected lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, his two daughters Xing and Alice were talented, popular and had bright futures ahead of them.  If anyone has any information on his whereabouts please contact Crimestoppers UK on +0044 (0) 800 555 111.
