Overseas, Dec. 4 - in 2018, a 28 year old Chinese woman, Kathy Yu, was killed in Australia. On December 4 local time, 20-year-old suspect Dong Shuo Dong pleaded guilty to murder. It is understood that Dong Shuo is Yu Qis roommate.
Dong Shuo admitted to murdering his roommate Yu Qi on June 8, 2018, the daily mail and Sydney Morning Herald reported. On February 14, 2020, Dong Shuo will appear in the Supreme Court of New South Wales for trial.
On June 6, 2018, two days before the murder, Dong Shuo, then 19, searched the Internet for information about punishment for murder in Australia and whats the difference between juvenile and adult confession.
According to the report, he has also searched the jungle areas around Sydney on the Internet for many times to find satisfactory sites for throwing dead bodies, including the Royal Park, mount colah, berowra and Ku ring Gai.
The victim, Yu Qi, was last seen on the day of the murder, June 8, in Keiths apartment in southwest Sydney, where she was with Dong Shuo and another woman.
At about 7:30 that night, she was chatting with her mother in China via wechat. In her last message to her mother, she wrote that there was a power failure at home, but something was wrong because it seemed that only their home was dark. Her mother was so frightened that she began to contact the neighbors who lived around her daughter.
At about 7:45 p.m. when neighbors knocked at the door, Dong Shuo told them that Yu Qi had gone out for dinner. Later that day, another roommate came home to find a red stain on the stairs and the floor was unusually clean. After that, Yuqi disappeared. Less than a week after her disappearance, Dong Shuo was charged with murder.
Investigators found that at around 10:30 p.m. that day, Dong Shuo used Google to search how to get back to Kensi from the M1 highway in Klau mountain. According to this clue, the investigators searched the shrubbery around the relevant site many times, even narrowed the search scope to the shrubbery in northern Sydney, but there was still no result.
Nearly seven weeks after Yu Qis disappearance, on July 25, her body was found in a bush near an emergency stop on the kulingeshan highway.
