Adult breastfeeding may be a taboo topic in many places, but that doesn’t negate the fact that it is an actual activity. In fact, some people are willing to pay money to suckle on nursing mothers. However, this apparently didn’t end well for one rich man.
In 2014, there were reports that a rich Chinese man had been murdered. Recently, it was discovered that his murder was indirectly caused by adult breastfeeding. As it turns out, adult breastfeeding can be messy, in more ways than one.
According to NetEase News (网易新闻), 60-year-old Liu Da Shan (刘大山) had been suffering from stomach cancer. As such, he hired a young woman, Lan Xi (蓝溪) to work as a nanny in his home. Shortly after she began working for him, Liu was reported to have passed away. He had supposedly fallen down the stairs. However, police found his death suspicious as there were unusual marks on his body.
Further investigation turned up a milk bottle in Liu’s bedroom. The bottle contained milk from Lan Xi and tests showed that Liu had drank it an hour before his death. Police suspected Liu of breastfeeding on Lan Xi. Curiously enough, they also discovered DNA from Lan Xi’s husband on Liu.
Lan Xi was then brought in for interrogation. The woman was noted to be very nervous during the investigation. Apparently, she was trembling and at one point, lactated. Lan Xi admitted to being paid to breastfeed Liu. According to her, Liu’s son had asked her to breastfeed his father as his stomach cancer had caused more than half his stomach to be removed. He supposedly needed breast milk to supplement his nutrition intake.
Lan Xi stated that Liu had promised her 200,000 yuan but asked her to sign an IOU instead. She then claimed it had made her angry so she had beaten him to death. Lan Xi staunchly denied the involvement of a third party.
Although it seemed like a closed case with her confession, police discovered more information which cast doubt. Apparently, Liu’s son had remitted 200,000 yuan to Lan Xi’s account four months before the incident. This time, the police decided to question Lan Xi’s husband. As it turns out, they managed to get the whole story from him.
Apparently, Lan Xi needed money to treat her child’s illness. When the offer to work as a nanny and breastfeed Liu came, she took it. However, she apparently did not tell her husband. One day, Lan Xi’s husband decided to drop by Liu’s house to give her something. He got a shock when he saw Liu holding his wife and drinking her breast milk.
Furious, he rushed forward and started beating Liu. When he finally stopped, he realised Liu was no longer breathing. To cover up their crime, Lan Xi helped her husband throw Liu’s body down the stairs and cleaned up the area. Lan Xi’s husband then left the house while she pretended Liu had just fallen down the stairs and passed away. Police were quick to arrest Lan Xi’s husband for murder.
Who would have known that adult breastfeeding would make things so complicated? Although it pays well, we’re not sure if it’s worth the potential murder if your partner finds out.
