Police are investigating the death of a Shaanxi Province father after villagers attending a funeral said they noticed injuries that pointed to his physically-abusive son. 

The 65-year-old victim was laid to rest during an open-casket ceremony in Beigao village near Xianyang, Shaanxi Province on Monday.

It was there villagers said that they noticed serious bruising on the deceased's face and body while his son, 44-year-old surnamed Huang, seemed suspiciously unemotional.

"(Huang) said (his dad) had fallen," one villager told Kankan News. "He then took a jacket and put it over his face... When I lifted it, I saw he had a black eye."

The villagers alerted police.

An initial investigation revealed  Huang had beaten his father just before he died. The two were known to have frequent petty arguments, said detective Wei Yuan with Sanyuan county police.

"They'd often result in Huang beating the elderly man," said Wei.
