Dying teen’s 999 call was ‘mishandled’
A DESPERATE, screaming 999 call from a teenage girl while she and her family were being murdered in their home was missed by police, a report has revealed.
University lecturer Jifeng Ding, 46, his wife Helen Chui, 47, and their two children were stabbed to death at their Northampton home in on the day of the Royal Wedding.
Their bodies were found two days later and a hunt was launched for the suspect Anxiang Du, 52, – a former business partner of the wife.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) probed the way police handled a call from the phone of daughter Xing, 18, as her parents were being attacked downstairs in their home.
It found a string of errors and led to IPCC Commissioner Amerdeep Somal to say: “Our investigation has found this 999 call was badly mishandled.”
