A graduate student from China was murdered at Virginia Tech. The alleged killer, also Chinese, decapitated her with a kitchen knife at a local coffee shop.
Xin Yang, a Beijing native, had met her accused attacker, 25-year-old Haiyang Zhu, through the 500-strong Chinese community at VTech. The two attended several functions together, and he was listed on her emergency contacts. But on Wednesday, seemingly apropos of nothing, he pulled out a kitchen knife in a cafe at the Graduate Life Center.
Witnesses said the two had not been arguing before the attack, and that there hadn’t been previous signs of trouble between them. Zhu has been charged with first-degree. This guy even looks psycho but maybe that is because I know he is.
