Late night on 5th April 1989, on the Youyi Forest Farm of Yichun City in Heilongjiang Province, a forest-fire ranger, Guan Chuansheng, was stabbed to death with a knife. During the crime-scene investigation, it was discovered that the back center of the victim’s overcoat had been cut, and that a corresponding cut in the body had corner angles. Investigators concluded that the cut to the coat had been made by a bayonet, and the other cuts by a single-edged cutting tool. The victim died at midnight after leaving the farm office an hour earlier, at which time the electricity of the farm went out.
