This distressing image allegedly shows the partially cooked remains of a Chinese doctor who was murdered and dismembered by his nurse colleague over sexual blackmail.
Major news outlets in China have reported the murder as having taken place yesterday (23rd March) in the nurse’s rental home behind Yulin People’s Hospital, which is in the city of Yulin in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in South China.
The Yuzhou Branch of the Yulin Public Security Bureau confirmed today (24th March) that a nurse was being held for the killing of a colleague, but the authorities have so far not released the names of those involved.
Chinese media, however, has named the emergency department nurse as Li Fengping, 25, who became involved in a sexual relationship with her hospital’s deputy head of orthopaedics, Luo Yuanjian.
Ms Li became heavily indebted to her colleague due to a gamgling addiction, and she was forced to pay off her creditor with sex “sometimes three times per week”, reports said.
Footage taken by neighbours living in the building across from Ms Li captured the moment local authorities left the nurse’s home carrying a stretcher covered by a piece of cloth, under which the dismembered body of Doctor Luo is said to have been.
According to reports, Ms Li exacted her revenge for alleged sexual blackmail by killing her colleague and cooking a part of his remains, which police found flushed down the toilet.
Chinese media has quoted one of the doctor’s former colleagues as saying the news about his death was “true” and “verified”.
However, both municipal and hospital officials have so far declined to comment on the details of the grisly murder, which is still under investigation.
Yulin police did not confirm reports which said Ms Li had called the police herself this morning to turn herself in.
