(Liangshan, Sichuan) — When Chen Yuanping accepted a job at a construction site in Beijing from a man he barely knew, it’s doubtful that he would have expected the offer to literally turn out to be a death trap.

The 30-year-old from a rural village in Shaanxi province was murdered by his associate and several accomplices in August 2014, who then used his corpse to stage a fake accident and claim over 1 million yuan in compensation from the construction company by posing as the victims’ relatives.
