Chapter 244

It was already dark when Yu Hanjiang returned to the police . He sent his colleagues home and planned to stay up late to work overtime by himself . The entire corridor was empty and dark . Only a warm light was shining in his office . It seemed that someone had forgotten to turn it off . Yu Hanjiang pushed open the door suspiciously .

It was Xiao Lou waiting for him in the office .



Xiao Lou obviously hadn’t finished work . He was still wearing the white coat as he sat quietly at the desk, his laptop open as he carefully checked the information . After hearing the door being pushed open, Xiao Lou raised his head and met Yu Hanjiang’s eyes . A smile immediately appeared as he stood up . “Group Leader Yu, you’re back? You definitely haven’t eaten yet . I ordered takeout for you . Let’s eat first . ”

Yu Hanjiang, “……” 

The feeling of having someone waiting for him to come back was very subtle . Yu Hanjiang felt warm and it seemed that even the lights in the room had warmed up . He looked over at Xiao Lou and smiled at him . “Thank you . ”


Xiao Lou’s eyes curved in a smile . “Why so polite? Come eat . I don’t know if it suits your taste or not . ”

‘As long as you buy it, everything is to my taste . ’

Yu Hanjiang thought like this as he sat down beside Xiao Lou . Xiao Lou opened the box and revealed braised chicken leg, three home-cooked side dishes and egg drop soup . It was very rich .  

Obviously, Xiao Lou had been distressed that Yu Hanjiang had been busy all day and wanted to give Group Leader Yu some nutritious food .

In the past when encountering difficult cases, Yu Hanjiang often worked overtime and forgot to eat . He didn’t expect Xiao Lou to be so careful that he stayed in the office and waited . Xiao Lou even ordered takeout for him .

This takeout was really delicious .

Yu Hanjiang ate a large meal and soon cleared the plate . Xiao Lou knew this person was so busy today that he didn’t even eat lunch . Therefore, Xiao Lou couldn’t help worrying . “This secret room has no time limit . You don’t have to work so hard and should eat your meals on time . ” 

Yu Hanjiang’s voice was soft . “Okay, I’ll listen to you . ”

It felt good to be cared for . The exhaustion of the entire day disappeared the moment he saw Xiao Lou . Yu Hanjiang walked over to Xiao Lou in a good mood . He placed one hand on the desktop and leaned over to look at Xiao Lou’s laptop screen . “How is the data organization?”

As he checked the information, Xiao Lou also searched for information on the Internet and took screenshots of Weibo posts . On October 29th, Lin Yiyan’s birthday caused her to go on the hot search . This showed how popular she was .  

Yu Hanjiang frowned and thought for a moment . “At present, Lin Yiyan gives the impression that she is a bit unreal . She is beautiful, has good acting skills, a good temperament and good popularity . Her shortcomings can hardly be picked out . ”

Xiao Lou nodded in agreement . I also think that Lin Yiyan among fans and people in the circle is like a character set by the company . It isn’t the real her . By the way, I also checked her debut history and found some problems . ”

Xiao Lou carefully listed Lin Yiyan’s experiences over the years written in the document .

10 years ago, the 20 year old Lin Yiyan was a sophomore student at the movie academy . She went to participate in an audition and was favoured by the director . She starred in a youth idol drama ‘Young Hearts’ which had very little investment . The male and female protagonists were both newcomers and the drama followed the small and fresh style . Unexpectedly, it was scored extremely high after being broadcasted on the Internet and Lin Yiyan became an instant hit .  

She became famous at the age of 20 and her star journey after that was a one-way trip .

After Young Hearts became hot, she didn’t continue to take more youth idol dramas . She took a costume martial arts drama with unpopular themes and a low-cost production . However, she was so popular that she blazed through the highly competitive summer season and won the top ratings . Netizens commented that she was a rare newcomer with both appearance and acting skills .

Over the years, Lin Yiyan shot TV dramas and each one had guaranteed ratings . It had to be said that Lin Yiyan was very good at choosing scripts .

She entered the movie market at the age of 27 . The box office and word of mouth of several movies she starred in were good and she won some awards . The age of 30 should be the most beautiful year for her . She starred in the super large IP costume drama World of Mortals not to mention that the movie she participated in broke a box office record . She also won the ‘Best Actress’ trophy at the most valuable movie festival in the circle .  

Yu Hanjiang carefully watched the debut experience that Xiao Lou summed up and analyzed it . “She has progressed too smoothly over the years . She is either a lucky person or someone is behind her helping her . Based on her family background, her parents are just ordinary company employees . There is no one in the entertainment industry among her relatives and friends… who was the investor in her first drama?”

If she had met a financial backer in that drama and hugged the thighs of a local tyrant in the entertainment industry, the financial backer would then recommend various resources to her . It could explain when she progressed so smoothly .

Xiao Lou replied, “It is written Chief Shao in the credits . ”

Yu Hanjiang opened the WeChat group and directly sent a message to Shao Qingge . “@Shao Qingge the youth campus online drama Young Hearts was invested in and filmed by Starlight Entertainment 10 years ago . Do you still have the crew information? You were an investor . Do you have any impression of what happened in the past?” 

Shao Qingge quickly replied, “I found that the company invested several million in this drama . Newcomers were invited to play and it was a project to test the water . The actor auditions were decided by the director . Qi Ming was the company’s representative and followed up on this matter . Our company shot the drama to select talented seedlings to cultivate . Lin Yiyan signed a contract with the company because of this drama . ”

Chief Shao naturally couldn’t be Lin Yiyan’s financial backer . Yu Hanjiang frowned . “In other words, Lin Yiyan has been following Qi Ming since her debut . Was it Qi Ming who discovered her?”

“Yes, Qi Ming is the company’s ace agent and has looked after several celebrities before . The people he likes will definitely have no problems . Lin Yiyan has been following him since signing the contract and it has been 10 years . ”

Xiao Lou brought up the promotional trailer of the drama and watched it with Yu Hanjiang .  

The 20 year old Lin Yiyan was indeed pure but the entertainment industry had never lacked beauties . There were many young and beautiful girls competing for the same role . Why did the agent Qi Ming and the director of this drama choose Lin Yiyan?

Was Lin Yiyan just particularly good or was there a hidden deal?

It wasn’t new for certain stars in the entertainment industry to have sex with the director in order to grab a role . Lin Yiyan looked innocent and gentle on the surface . As for whether she used other means to grab the role, they would have to continue investigating the people involved .

Xiao Lou turned back and asked, “Were there any clues from the traffic police side?” 

Yu Hanjiang repeated the information he found and Xiao Lou frowned . “It was Cheng Yu who entered the villa that night? This means that Cheng Yu and Lin Yiyan should be having an affair . However, there was Lin Yiyan’s body in the bathroom and no traces of semen were found in the body, nor were there any condoms . Did they do it in the bathroom? Are they so clean?”

Yu Hanjiang spoke seriously . “They drove two cars in so perhaps it was car play . The two car license plate numbers are 501 and 502 . If they did it in the car then it is normal that no traces were found in the house .

Xiao Lou, “……”

Group Leader Yu, you seemed to really understand this? 

Xiao Lou was too embarrassed to continue this topic and said, “I just checked Cheng Yu’s information . His identity is a bit special . ” As he spoke, he opened a document for Yu Hanjiang . “His father is Cheng Jianqiang, the owner of the largest real estate company in Binzhou City . Cheng Yu is the only child of the Cheng family . If he can’t make it in the entertainment industry then he can go back and inherit the family business . ”

Yu Hanjiang came to take a look .


In the contract that Cheng Yu signed, only the names of his parents were written in the family members column and their occupation was listed as ‘company employees’ . However, Xiao Lou searched it up and found that this couple happened to match the names of the husband and wife of the largest real estate company in Binzhou .

Then Shao Qingge confirmed it . Cheng Yu was indeed a rich second generation and was acting in the entertainment industry purely because he was interested . He had a bad temper and often left when something didn’t agree with him . He was very willful .  

Yu Hanjiang analyzed it . “Cheng Yu is a rich second generation and has no obvious motives for killing . There are many assets in the family waiting for him to inherit . It isn’t worth it for him to torture and kill a female celebrity . ”

Xiao Lou also agreed with Yu Hanjiang . A rich second generation worth billions of yuan was so deeply in love with a female star eight years older than him in the entertainment industry that he would kill her? The rich second generations weren’t so brainless .

Yu Hanjiang added . “One more thing . Lin Yiyan had already put on pyjamas and took off her makeup when she died . ”

Xiao Lou nodded . “Many celebrities will show a big difference before and after removing makeup . If Lin Yiyan likes Cheng Yu then she will definitely show him her more beautiful side . My speculation is that Lin Yiyan and Cheng Yu had a relationship in the car that night . After Cheng Yu drove away, Lin Yiyan removed her makeup, took a bath and prepared to go to bed . Only then did the murderer act . ” 

Yu Hanjiang nodded . “Judging from the timeline and on-site evidence, this is indeed the case . ”

Xiao Lou paused as he remembered something . “Both cars weren’t at the scene . Cheng Yu drove away in 501 so what about the other car? Where is Lin Yiyan’s car?”

Yu Hanjiang rubbed his temple . “I checked the whereabouts of the two cars with the traffic police . Judging from the surveillance records, Cheng Yu’s car no . 501 left Yuehu Villa at 3 a . m . Car no . 502 left at 4 a . m . It is an hour apart . Except for Lin Yiyan and Cheng Yu, there must be a third person . After killing Lin Yiyan, the murderer drove her car and took her mobile phone . In this way, the community’s security would think Lin Yiyan already left . ”

Lin Yiyan’s body was frozen in the bathtub and it would be hard to find it for a long time . Lin Yiyan’s car was taken out and the murderer also took Lin Yiyan’s mobile phone and sent WeChat messages to her agent and friends . Everyone would think that Lin Yiyan was still alive .  

The murderer could always pretend to be Lin Yiyan and send messages . Finally, she would announce that she quit acting and would fade out of the entertainment circle .

There were only a few people who knew Lin Yiyan’s secret residence . The false image created by the murderer would be hard to find suspicious . A living person would be able to disappear without a trace .

During this period, the murderer would be free to take care of the body . The murderer had clearly planned this for a long time .

Xiao Lou’s eyes suddenly brightened . “The murderer knows Lin Yiyan’s whereabouts very well . They could act immediately when Lin Yiyan returned to the Yuehu Villa area . Perhaps… the murderer also lives in this community?” 

The Yuehu Villa area was located on the outskirts of the city . The scenery was excellent and there were no other residential areas around it . It was very secluded and could only be reached by driving through a mountain road . This obviously wasn’t a sudden case but a planned murder that had been prepared for a long time .

It would be a very tight timeframe if the murderer headed for the villa area after learning that Lin Yiyan and Cheng Yu had returned there . However, what if the killer lived in the villa area? Then it would be much easier to act!

Yu Hanjiang looked at Xiao Lou appreciatively . “I think so as well . Let’s rest . Tomorrow, I will go to the property management and get a list of owners in the Yuehu Villa area . I will also stop by the movie and television studio to ask Cheng Yu about the situation that night . ”

Xiao Lou nodded . It was time for them to join the crew and meet their other teammates .
