The ‘obsessed’ Henan doomsday believer who went on a stabbing spree at an elementary school in Guangshan county exactly one year ago today was sentenced to death yesterday at the Xinyang City Intermediate People’s Court.
According to reports, 36-year-old Min Yongjun was suspected of entering an elderly woman’s house last year and stabbing her with a kitchen knife, then going to a nearby elementary school in Chenpeng village and slashing 23 children before being stopped by teachers and police. The woman and the children were all severely injured.
Statements from the Guangshan county government said that investigations found the man to be psychologically disturbed and “strongly affected” by doomsday predictions.
One year later, it seems that his end-the-world prophecies were self-fulfilled.
