Weibo The body of a teenager who was sold by his birth parents as a baby and deserted by them again after a recent reunion was found on a beach in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan early Monday (Jan 24) morning. Liu Xuezhou, 17, apparently committed suicide and left a lengthy note on Weibo, alarming people who had become concerned about his personal safety. Liu's biological mother, identified by Chinese outlets only as Ms. Police in the city of Sanya launched a search for the boy after they were alerted by the public that he could be in danger. “A review of the notebook revealed written statements by Mr Laundrie claiming responsibility for Ms Petito’s death,” the FBI said in a statement. Liu was found by people who had started a search after reading his social media posts. She told The Paper that they planned on giving their son away and not selling him, but that the middleman who sold Liu to his adoptive parents insisted on gifting them money. He was rushed to hospital, but doctors could not save his life. It is an unthinkable loss.
A Weibo photo shows Liu and his biological mother, who he tracked down in December 2021. Liu said he then lived with his grandparents — the parents of his adoptive mother — and received child support from his grandparents on his adoptive father's side. “The FBI’s primary focus throughout the investigation was to bring justice to Gabby and her family. PHOTO: Weibo The teenager had become the source of national attention in China after his initial story went viral online. It all started earlier in January when he posted on the social media platforms Weibo and Douyin saying that his birth parents had decided to cut ties with him after they were reunited in December 2021 with help from the police. Last week, he posted a photo of a dilapidated house, claiming it was where he stayed. Liu was sold by his biological parents at birth in 2005 but became an orphan at the age of four when his adoptive parents, two farmers from Hebei province in north China, died in a home explosion.” Roberta and Chris Laundrie helped law enforcement officers locate their son’s remains in October (Fox News) Ms Petito’s remains were found in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on 19 September, three weeks after she last spoke to her family. Liu spent most of his life getting passed between relatives after the accident. Screenshot/Liu XueZhou/Weibo As his request for information gathered steam online, police from his home region found his biological father through DNA testing. The search has turned up nothing so far.
He was able to track down his birth parents last month after he launched an online search, but both his parents, who had since divorced and started new families, refused to accept him back into their lives. In the past week, Liu had publicly argued with his parents. But Liu said his father refused to take him in because he was already raising another family. TRENDING. In his 10,000-word suicide letter, he said he had been "abandoned twice by his biological parents". ALSO READ: Has China's push to ban 'effeminate' and 'sissy' men claimed its first victim? The tragic case of Zhou Peng A photo shows Liu at a restaurant with his father. Like his father, she rejected the teen, saying she just "wanted a peaceful life" and had her own family, reported. The two would later quarrel over a property dispute. "I assured the residents I would take up this issue with the police after the case has concluded.
PHOTO: Weibo When Liu was first reunited with his parents, the family seemed happy initially, but they began to quarrel after Liu asked his parents for a separate place to live. Liu Xuezhou/Weibo According to Beijing News, Liu's biological parents pooled their money and sent him on vacation to Sanya. His father, Ding Shuangquan, and his mother, surnamed Zhang, told mainland media last week that Liu was trying to force them to buy him property, which they said they could not afford. Liu said his biological parents did not allow him to live with them and refused to let him to visit their homes. They both refused the request, the teen said on. He said he asked them to "either rent or buy a place for me because I have been homeless". Zhang told Shangyou News that she cut off contact with Liu to return to her "peaceful life".
"Wouldn't you stay away if he were your child and was being so defensive that he even recorded your conversations? His father has remarried, and so have I. He tried to force us to buy him a home, but we are not well-off enough for that," she was quoted as saying. Liu said the row with his birth parents triggered an avalanche of online abuse. "There have been people attacking and cursing me on Douyin and Weibo in the past couple of days," he wrote in the suicide note. "I have been told to 'go to hell' and have been called various curse names, such as 'scheming son of a b****', 'disgusting' and 'sissy'.
" Cyberbullying is a serious problem in China, and Liu said the online attacks had become unbearable. Liu said he had been bullied online after his story went viral in China. PHOTO: Weibo Last Thursday, Liu said he would sue his parents for abandoning him twice. He also said in the note he had been bullied and called a "deserted child" by his schoolmates in the past. Liu also claimed a male teacher had sexually abused him but had kept that a secret for most of his life.
A man surnamed Zhang, the head of the village committee of Beimeng, where Liu grew up, told the South China Morning Post that their community was aware of Liu's death and would support his adoptive family if they needed help.
