The shocking case of the murder of a Panyu family of six that included two children has resulted in a suspect being arrested, reports Sina.

The suspect, named Su, is 29 years-old and hails from Taikang County in Henan Province. Su was apprehended at 5am on May 3 at his residence in an industrial area in Guangdong. There, police discovered the victims’ stolen belongings: 6,000 yuan, a gold bracelet, and bank account cards (see below).
 
The suspect had allegedly broken into the residence in Dashijie District in Panyu at 3am on April 28 to rob it, at which time he apparently decided to kill the entire family.
 
 
 
The bodies of the victims were found the next day on April 29 at 3pm. Dead are a Mr Song, his wife, their son and daughter, and the children’s grandparents. The girl is reported to have been five years-old, while the youngest victim is a boy who was just two years-old.

From the time we first brought you this story, details have continually been sparse. However, police have finally revealed the motive of the crime: Su needed money to purchase better equipment for an online video game to which he was reportedly addicted.

Su is facing criminal charges.
