Dad Reveals Horrifying Truth About What Happened To 5-Yr-Old After Cops Find Her Body

This woman and her husband, Liang Zhao, are central figures in a bizarre criminal investigation in North Canton, Ohio. Earlier this year the couple informed police that their daughter, Ashley Zhao, had disappeared. Now, after police began investigating his wife for beating the young girl to death, Liang Zhao told authorities that he hid his daughter’s body in his Chinese restaurant.

The investigation began when the Chinese couple contacted North Canton authorities in January and told police that their daughter had gone missing after being left in the back room of their family owned restaurant, Ang’s Asian Cuisine. Their statement to police triggered a national manhunt and Ohio authorities began canvassing witnesses and combing the state for any sign of the young girl.

However, in a horrifying turn of events, Ashley Zhao’s body was finally discovered when police decided to have another look inside Ang’s Asian Restaurant. Officers were stunned to discover the young girl’s body jammed inside a freezer in the kitchen. Ohio authorities and investigators have reported that Ashley was killed by a brain injury caused by several sharp blows to the head.

After Ashley’s body was found, Chinese investigators immediately arrested Mingming Chen and Liang Zhao. Shortly afterwards, Mr. Zhao crumbled during an interrogation and confirmed that his wife had accidentally killed his daughter during a vicious beating. Zhao allegedly told police that he made several attempts to revive his daughter when he realized the extent of her injuries.  

Despite his testimony, Zhao has still been charged with obstructing justice, corpse-abuse, tampering with evidence and endangering children. At this stage, the deceitful father looks set to face up to 12 years’ imprisonment.

Ms. Chen has also been arrested and received severe charges, including murder and felonious assault. Ms. Chen is still detained by Ohio police and her trial is scheduled in October.

Online commenters and social media users are horrified by the heartbreaking story. Two commenters on the Dailymail were particularly angered by the couple’s reprehensible actions. “They should both get a life sentence. The likelihood is she was abused before. Did she ever have any good days with these savages? How do parents get away with this? Did nobody from school, doctor's surgery or a neighbor notice anything? Poor, sweet child unable to defend herself from those monsters,” wrote a user named ‘Progress’. Another commenter, Trying 2 Find The, wrote: “She is 1 dead eyes looking beast! shame & disgrace on him for protecting that & NOT! his child.”

This incident has highlighted the disturbing regularity of violence against children across America. According to childrensdefense.org, 4 children are killed by abuse or neglect every day in America. The website states several other horrifying daily statistics about youth deaths, listing 21 children and teen accident-related deaths as well as 7 deaths from gun-related violence or accidents. Since the incident in Ohio, social activists have called for more effective support services and education resources for young victims of domestic abuse.
