On March 26th, a Hefei woman was found naked and dead in her apartment. There were wounds on her arms and neck and traces of blood in the hallway and stairwell of the building. Neighbours claimed there were gurgling sounds coming from the apartment, the bathroom heat lamps had been left on and that there was no answer when they knocked on the door. After an autopsy and investigation, police learned that the girl was killed by her former classmate, who had recently broken up with his girlfriend. When the woman was unsympathetic to his story, the man choked her to death in a fit of rage.
