Cops rope in Interpol in search for three other men

Police are searching for three new suspects linked to the beheading of a Chinese interpreter at a Port Elizabeth restaurant last year.

Police revealed yesterday that they were still tracking the men, who could have already fled South Africa. Interpol has also been roped in to assist.

Investigating officer Detective Warrant Officer Eric Matthews said the case had taken several twists and turns.

He said the main motive for the murder was a bitter blood feud between Zhi Duan Huang, 37, and the three hunted men.

Duan Huang was decapitated in the Jade Gardens restaurant at the Dolphins Leap centre in Humewood in October.

At the time, restaurant staff who arrived at work in the morning were told that the blood lining the floor and walls was “wine” before being given bleach to clean it up.
