A 15-year-old Chinese girl named Lui Yu was reportedly mutilated, beaten to death and dismembered by a group of six teenagers, between the ages 14 and 17. Local news publications reported that the culprits murdered the girl whom they had forced into prostitution after a client had complained.
Lui Yu, who has been described as an “introvert” and a good student, disappeared after she left her home in the city of Shenmu in northwest China on 22 Sept. According to the Beijing News, her father reported her disappearance to the police ten days after she vanished.
Six teenage boys have now confessed to murdering the girl on 23 Sept, a day after she had disappeared. She died nine days before her father made the police report.
The teenagers reportedly took Lui Yu to a hotel for sex before beating her to death with a brick. The murder, which ended with her body being carved up and buried nearby, was reportedly triggered when the client Lui Yu had been prostituted to complained.
Lui Yu’s frantic father, who had been searching for his daughter for weeks, was left devastated when the police called him last week confirming that they have found a body. Revealing that he was barely able to recognise his daughter’s body, Lui Yu’s father said:
“The body was dismembered. Police made a DNA test and are still waiting for the results.”
Police investigations are ongoing.
