The remains of a woman reported missing in January have been found, after her boyfriend confessed to killing her, dismembering her body, and dumping the remains in long grass in Tainan City.
Ms Zhang (張), 42, was reported missing on January 24 after her son failed to make contact with her for several days. Police investigating the case located Zhang’s car, which was being used by her 30-year-old cohabiting boyfriend, Wu Maoteng (吳茂騰).
The car showed signs of having been thoroughly cleaned, and police took Wu in for questioning. During the interrogation, Wu broke down and confessed that he had killed Zhang, cut her body into 6 pieces in the bathroom of their residence, put the body parts into three large garbage bags, and disposed of them in long grass in Barclay Memorial park in the East District.
Wu admitted that he had wanted to bury the bags, but there were too many people around at the time. [FULL STORY]
