Decapitation On Virginia Tech Campus Brings Back Painful Memories

January 23, 2009

Virginia (ChattahBox) – In another tragic act of violence at Virginia Tech University, a 22-year-old woman has been decapitated by her 25-year-old friend, in a public cafe on campus.

Xin Yang, a 22-year-old exchange student studying accounting had only been at the university for a few months, according to the administrators. She had been quiet, and had few friends, one of which was Haiyang Zhu, also from China, who was listed as an emergency contact.

According to students who witnessed the scene, the two have no been arguing at the time of the murder, and there had been no warning. When police arrived at the scene, Zhu was holding Yang’s head in his hand, having sawed it off with a kitchen knife.

Zhu was not known as having any psychiatric problems, but recent posts on a Chinese forum said that he had been stressed and angry over falling stock prices, and felt like killing someone, or himself.

He has been charged with first degree murder, and is being held without bail.

    Thats why I have been pushing for 5 day waiting periods on kitchen knives. These kinds of acts of violence are preventable. We should not let just anybody have access to kitchen utensils. Just imagine how many more people he could have killed if he only had a salad shooter!

    Real smart comment ryan. Not even funny.

    What’s amazing is that no one in the cafe raced to help this poor woman. I know it’s a horrible thing to witness but damn.

    You bloggers are just as bad! I can’t believe what I’m reading. What a tragedy for all of us. To make a joke about such an awful event. Sick sick sick

    Ryan and Chong, you are a major problem. You are worth nothing. People who honestly believe an act like this is funny, no nothing about life, have no character, and have inner identity issues. You two obviously aren’t smart enough to be called sick, you do however, qualify for the title of pathetic. I am wondering how you all function in your day-to-day, you are mindless, and again worthless creations.

    Looking around the net after reading some wingnut blogger calling a similar murder an “honor killing” on the basis that the victim and murderer were Muslims. (There were no other facts suggesting it an honor killing aside his religion and the fact that she was decapitated, and witnesses who knew the couple say he was not particularly devout or fundamentalist… But then, this is the kind of neocon “American exceptionalist thinker” who would look at this killing & blame Communism, or illegal immigration or something…)

    It is a shame when people use crime victims as props with which to push their ridiculous partisan political or social ideas…

    I’d almost prefer the jokes…
