BEIJING (AP) — State media say police in northern China suspect that the woman who gouged out a 6-year-old boy's eyes was his aunt who later killed herself by jumping into a well.
The official Xinhua News Agency cited police in the city of Linfen in Shanxi as saying the aunt was identified as a suspect after the boy's blood was found on her clothes.
State media say the boy, named Guo Bin, was lured by a woman into a field on Aug. 24 where she used an unspecified tool to gouge out his eyes.
Six days later, Zhang Huiying killed herself, though at the time media reports cited other relatives as saying they did not think she was responsible for the attack.
No motive has been cited.
