Authorities say a Brooklyn Center man who was a "person of interest" in the death of his wife has been found dead. Police say 41-year-old Ger Xiong was found in Palmer Lake Park in Brooklyn Park dead from a self-inflicted hanging. They don't know how long he had been dead. Xiong was considered a "person of interest" in the investigation of the death of his wife, 41-year-old Youa Her. Police arrived at Xiong's home located at 7106 Oliver Avenue North on June 10th and were met at the door by two of the Her's sons who then led them to the body. Authorities say she died of blunt force trauma. Officers searched for Xiong by helicopter but could never find him. The Her's mother says Xiong had previously threatened to kill his wife. Relatives say the couple had seven children.
