TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A 31 year old man, surnamed Wu (吳) in Tainan was arrested for the murder and dismemberment of his live-in girlfriend on Feb. 1, after investigators were able to locate her body at Barclay Memorial Park in Tainan’s East District.
The 43 year old victim, surnamed Chang (張), was last seen on Jan. 8. According to reports, the suspect killed her late that night and dismembered her body the next day in their shared apartment’s bathroom.
Wu continued to go to his job at a metal working factory following Chang’s disappearance. It was only after a week of no word from Chang, that the woman’s co-workers and her son, who was away at university, began asking questions and seeking her whereabouts.
A missing person’s case was filed with the local police on Jan. 24, which led investigators to Wu. When initially approached by officers Wu denied any knowledge of her whereabouts. [FULL STORY]
