Digging up the ground for construction, discovered a dry skeleton in an old flower blanket
On a cold night on the last day of December 2004, a group of workers from Road Construction Company 479 held a ground-breaking ceremony to prepare to build a project in Nghi Phu commune (Vinh City, Nghe An). The construction site is the old land of Enterprise 572 belonging to Road Company No. 8 (now dissolved) located in hamlet 9, Nghi Phu commune (Vinh City).
This land has been abandoned for many years, so the grass is overgrown. Before the ceremony, the company’s engineering team calculated and specified the ground breaking location. However, during the incense burning ceremony, a young engineer looked over and over and discussed with everyone to change the location.

The new location chosen to break ground is the location that has just been converted to votive paper by a group of workers. This is a high mound overgrown with reeds. After discussing and measuring, everyone also agreed to move to a new location for the groundbreaking ceremony.
When the incense has worn off and after a few symbolic procedures, the ladle is moved to the groundbreaking site. The buckets of the excavator fell to the ground, and suddenly the electric lights at the construction site went out. The only light at the moment was just creeping from the dim moonlit sky. After a few minutes of troubleshooting, the lights came back on so the excavator continued to work.
However, after just a few buckets of scooping up the soil, the workers discovered that a piece of cloth was entangled in the bucket like a blanket. The group of workers approached to remove the piece of cloth, but they were shocked because they discovered that there were white objects like human bones inside.
The land chosen to break ground is a mound of overgrown reed grass next to the fence of Enterprise 572.
The whole group of workers quickly gathered to check that it was true that the human bones wrapped in a blanket were worn. The incident was immediately reported by the workers to the police and local authorities.
“When the skeleton was discovered, many people gathered to see it. Everyone panicked. The location where the skeleton was discovered is right next to the fence of the old 572 factory. Now they are building an electric substation. The fact that the skeleton was dug really shook public opinion in this commune at that time“, a man in his 60s who just plowed the ground to grow vegetables right on the old factory land 572 shared.
Receiving information from the people, the Police Department to investigate crimes on social order, the Criminal Technical Department of Nghe An Provincial Police immediately coordinated with the local police present to blockade the scene and investigate the incident. .
Many people in Nghi Phu commune, who are now cultivating in the land of Enterprise 572, still remember the day when the body was discovered in this land.
“When he arrived at the scene, the skeleton had been partially dug up. We put the skeleton on the canvas for examination and investigation. This is a complete human skeleton, the victim is young“, Lieutenant Colonel Phan Van Nhung – Former officer of the Criminal Technical Division of Nghe An Provincial Police shared.
Looking closely at the scene, the police agency raised many doubts about this human skeleton. Is this a grave buried by people? Or a murder victim and poorly hidden in an old blanket.
Through research, it is known that the land where this human skeleton was discovered formerly belonged to Construction Enterprise 572, surrounded by a fence. Inside is the camp of workers living and working.
When enterprise 572 was dissolved, the entire land area was assigned to the local management. It was not until 2004 that the local government handed over the construction to Company 479.
Therefore, this land cannot appear the graves of people buried. Moreover, if it is a grave, why is the body not carefully buried in a coffin, but wrapped in a flower blanket and lightly buried in soil as if it is hiding some truth.
Conducted a survey of the Criminal Technical Institute of the Ministry of Public Security, the results showed that the other skeleton belonged to a female, the victim was about 1.60m tall, when she died, her age was about 20-25. until detection is about 13 to 14 years. This conclusion is quite consistent with the initial assessment of the authorities of Nghe An province.

The more the investigation, the more the police realized that the death of this victim was problematic. Because on the top of the victim’s skull there is a large crack in the middle of the 2 joints. Many questions are raised, whether this crack appeared during the burial process or because the bone was cracked for a long time, so the bones were cracked, or if the victim was still alive by a strong impact on the head, leading to death. ?.
The fact that the body was wrapped in a flower blanket and lightly buried as someone trying to hide the truth about this victim’s death in a very hurry. Therefore, the police suspect that this may be a murder case and then dispose of the body.
“On the victim’s skull left a large depression and crack. This is the key and identifies the victim with a strong impact on the head that leads to death“, a former officer of the Criminal Technical Division of Nghe An Provincial Police shared.

However, in order to find out the exact cause of death, the first thing to do is to determine who this victim is. Where did they come from, how long have they been missing or dead?
During the investigation of the scene where the skeleton was discovered, in addition to the flower blanket, the police also discovered a patterned outerwear. Because the blanket and shirt are made of nylon blended fabric, they have not decomposed for a long time.
The discovery of an unidentified dry skeleton in the old land of the construction enterprise has made public opinion in Nghi Phu commune bewildered and worried. At this time, many people also gathered to observe the process of investigation and work of the police.
The day Hien disappeared mysteriously, the family reported it to the village and commune, so everyone knew about the incident
Among these people is Mr. Nguyen Van Hue (resident in hamlet 9, Nghi Phu commune). When the shirt was cleaned by the police, revealing small patterns and colors, Mr. Hue was startled because he remembered the day his sister went missing wearing a similar shirt. Mr. Hue then presented the incident to police officers who were investigating here.
Working with the police, Mr. Hue said, one night around the end of April 1990, his sister Nguyen Thi Thu Hien (SN 1968) went out of the house to talk to her boyfriend. Since then, Ms. Hien disappeared and never returned. When going out of the house, Ms. Hien wore the same shirt that the police had just found on a human skeleton in the vacant lot.
By collecting information from Mr. Hue and investigating, the police knew that in 1990, Ms. Hien was just over 20 years old, which completely coincided with the assessment of the skeleton’s age. The burial time of the skeleton was also determined about 13-14 years ago and coincided with the time of Hien’s disappearance.
When Hien disappeared, everyone in Nghi Phu commune knew. Her family searched many places but to no avail.
Hien’s house is only a few tens of meters from the old 572 factory land
Also in the 1990s, there were many young boys and girls who left their hometown to work far away and went abroad, so after a while of searching, the family also thought that Hien had gone to work far away, so gradually also stop searching.
“That year, when Hien disappeared, everyone knew. But after I couldn’t find her, I thought she had gone to work far away, so that’s okay. Only when workers dug the ground and discovered Hien’s skeleton did everyone realize that she had died near her house, not far away.“, a resident living next to the fence of Factory 572 shared.
On the police side, after collecting information from Mr. Hue, the police took blood and nail samples from this person to conduct DNA testing. The results showed that Mr. Hue and the other skeleton had the same bloodline.
From the information, evidence and examination results, the police determined that the skeleton found in the land of Enterprise 572 belonged to Ms. Hien, the daughter who went missing 14 years ago that Mr. year search.
