A man from Hainan wanted for homicide has surrendered to the police after 15 days hiding out in the mountains, reports the CCP mouthpiece People’s Daily.
The man from the city of Wanning on the southern island province, surnamed Wang, fled to the hills after he killed a man surnamed Fu on Sept. 28. The two men, who were friends, got into an argument at a bar over whether China or Japan would win if the two countries went to war over the disputed Diaoyu or Senkaku islands. During the fight, Wang reportedly stabbed Fu in the stomach with a broken bottle. Fu subsequently died of his injuries in hospital.
The 36-year-old Wang had fled the scene by the time police arrived. The authorities kept up their seacrh for the suspect over the Golden Week holidays at the start of the month, monitoring all wharfs and airports on the island.  
Reports indicated that Wang was hiding out in the mountains and that he had experience living in the wilderness. After early searches were unsuccessful, the police asked Wang’s family to write him a letter urging him to turn himself in. Wang found their letter and accordingly decided to surrender after two weeks on the run.
Wang said he first fled to the mountain after the incident occurred and learned of Fu’s death after returning briefly to the city the following morning. He stole fruit and cooked wild vegetables to eat during his time on the run.
