A live streamer on the platform Kuaishuo allegedly told viewers that he locked his wife, who may be a human trafficking victim, in a cage, physically and mentally abused her and built high walls with barbed wire around his home to stop her from escaping. 

The live streamer, Li Limin, lives in Jia County, a rural area of Yulin City, Shaanxi Province. Netizens who saw Li’s broadcast posted the information on social media, and another wrote a WeChat article outlining what was said during the broadcasts. 

The WeChat article was written by user Hei Ma Shi Yu (Dark Horse Poetry) who says the allegations come from several social media contacts. Hours after the article was published, authorities in Shaanxi announced that they were looking into the case, which has been dubbed the ‘Caged Woman Case.’

The article starts by claiming that Li’s wife, who he calls Xiao Yu, may in fact be Wang Guohong, a student who went missing in Qinghai Province in 2009 while on her way to school. Netizens discovered she was living in Shaanxi in 2020.

The article alleges that Li announced that he and Xiao have been together since 2009, and she has tried to escape several times. Li added that each attempt ended with severe abuse.

To stop people from rescuing Xiao, Li stockpiled dynamite in his house as a deterrent. 

Li went on to state that Xiao had given birth to his son and daughter. However, he sold his daughter to someone in a nearby village for RMB30,000. 

Li told viewers that he didn’t know his wife’s real name or where she was from. However, he did say she was registered as his wife under the name Xiao Yu in 2019, and showed the permanent residence permit to prove it.

Li’s Kuaishuo account has since been blocked and his videos are no longer accessible. At one point, he had nearly 100,000 followers. 

Due to the number of followers and the fact that he broadcast the stories about his wife on a live streaming site, Li has profited from putting the information on social media.

It was reported that after the case of the woman in chains in Fengxian, Jiangsu Province, Li became careful of what he said online and blocked anyone who questioned him. 

On Wednesday, March 2, the Ministry of Public Security announced that they would be conducting a 10-month-long campaign to quash the county’s human trafficking problem involving women and children. 

The announcement called for all local police to review any suspected cases of human trafficking. It also said that DNA samples from suspected victims of abduction and those looking for missing relatives would be collected.
