Taichung prosecutors on Tuesday questioned five men in connection with the death of a teenager whose body was found in a hotel room.
The 17-year-old’s body was found on a bed by hotel staff on Monday and an initial examination suggested that the girl, who was referred to by the alias Siao Zhen (小珍), had died from ingesting recreational drugs.
Coroners yesterday performed an autopsy and the results of drug tests would be available in the coming days, police said.
Prosecutors suspect that the men allegedly had sex with the teen and said that they could be charged with forcible sex, abandonment in causing death, exploitation of a minor and related charges. [FULL STORY]
