Taichung police summoned the father and wife of March 17 train derailment suspect Lee Tai-an (李泰安) for questioning yesterday, hoping to learn whether Lee Tai-an actually boarded the derailed train, as he had claimed. Lee Tai-an said he boarded the train with his younger brother Lee Shuang-chuan (李雙全), who hanged himself after it became apparent that he was a suspect in the incident. Lee Shuang-chuan's wife Chen Hong-chen (陳氏紅琛) died in the derailment. Investigators suspect that Lee Tai-an did not board the train, but went to Pingtung County to damage the railway track. Three witnesses told police they met Lee Tai-an in Taichung County on March 17 before the train headed to Pingtung. However, the witnesses later admitted that Lee Tai-an had asked them to lie, and said they had not seen him on the day in question.
