Man Suspected of Killing Teen Nephews Taken Into Custody in Hong Kong

A man suspected of killing his two teenage nephews in Arcadia, California, was taken into custody in Hong Kong on Saturday, officials.

Deyun Shi, 44, boarded a plane to Beijing, China, on Friday and was taken into custody after his plane arrived at a Hong Kong airport, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

Shi is wanted in connection with the double slaying of teen brothers William Lin,15, and Anthony Lin,16, who were found beaten to death at a home in the 400 Block of Fairview Avenue, according to coroner's and sheriff's officials.

The two boys were found with blunt force injuries just before 1 p.m. on Friday by their mother and father, officials said. The victim's names had not yet been released.

According to the sheriff's department, Shi's wife was hospitalized on Thursday after he allegedly attacked her with the head of a hatchet at a home in La Canada Flintridge. Shi became enraged upon finding out that his wife had filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order against him, officials said.

Investigators believe the uncle may have forced his way inside the Arcadia home while the boys' parents were away tending to the suspect's wife at the hospital.

FBI officials who were assisting LASD in the investigation said Shi was "pending further review by officials in the U.S. and Hong Kong."

Anyone with information was asked to to call the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
