Double murder probe CCTV released

Recommended Posts

I wonder how they've ruled out gang involvement? Sounds like a Triads sort of thing to me:

Double murder probe CCTV released

 

CCTV images showing the last known movements of a woman, who was murdered along with her boyfriend at a flat, have been released by police.

 

Xi Zhou and Zhen Xing Yang, both 25, died after a "frenzied" knife attack in a flat in Newcastle's West End.

 

The images show Miss Xi on a bus and walking towards the home she shared with Mr Zhen in Croydon Road.

 

Detectives have now also brought in an offender profiler to help establish a motive for the killings.

 

The bodies of the victims, from China, were found at the downstairs flat on Saturday afternoon.

 

The CCTV images were taken as Miss Xi travelled home from work at the Wagamama restaurant in Newcastle on Thursday afternoon.

 

Police said Mr Zhen was "assaulted for more than an hour" before being stabbed. They believe passers-by may have heard his screams.

 

A post-mortem examination revealed he suffered extensive bruising to his arms before he died.

 

Examinations also showed Miss Xi may have been asphyxiated as well as stabbed during the attack.

 

A cat's body, found hidden under a sink in the flat, could also provide clues into the motive behind the murders, detectives have said.

 

The cat, which was found submerged under water in a washing bowl, was possibly killed by the pair's attackers, said Northumbria Police.

 

The couple met at Newcastle University where they both took masters degrees, graduating in September 2006.

 

Since then Miss Xi, known as Cici, had worked as a waitress at the Wagamama restaurant.

 

Police have not yet established Mr Zhen's occupation, despite looking at the couple's bank accounts.

 

They have ruled out any gang or drugs links, and said the murders remained motiveless.

It is a bit strange how the cat was found dead as well. Its not as if it would have seen the murder and been able to identify the killer...

This is the sort of thing where Sherlock Holmes would have been able to figure out the entire case just by having a look at the cat.

Maybe they stole his cat and killed it and he got upset?

 

 

Maybe he pinched someone else's cat with the intentions of making a curry with it, they found out and gave him some of his own medicine.

Its not prejudice, its common sense. How many violent murders are committed by women?

 

A lot more than people think.
