Murder details

Cheng was found in the Great Wall of China with a plastic bag covering his head. Jack and the player deduced the bag was used to suffocate him—registering the plastic bag as the murder weapon. With May Douglas' little help, Angela also determined Cheng's killer poisoned him with camphor to disorient him and commit the murder without him putting up a fight. Angela determined the killer knew traditional Chinese medicine to calculate the required amount of camphor to do so.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be the victim's wife named Fang Di Yun.

After she denied involvement, Yun said that she killed her husband in order to stop his cruelty to the children in his pickpocket gang. Yun was pushed to her limit when she found out Cheng beat one of the children, Bai Bai, with a belt. Judge Adaku sentenced her to 10 years in jail for the murder of Fang Cheng.


  • Cheng's death at the hands of his wife is one of the instances of domestic homicide in World Edition.
