Never help anyone. A 17 year old girl was sexually assaulted and murdered by a couple in Heilongjiang after she came to the assistance of the woman who had pretended to collapse on the street.
Mei (pseudonym) was walking home in Jiamusi, Heilongjiang province when she came across a pregnant woman, surnamed Tan, who appeared to have fallen in the street. Tan asked Mei to help her get home. At Tan’s house, her husband greeted Mei and gave her yoghurt spiked with sleeping pills. Tan’s husband then tried to rape Mei, who was still conscious enough to fight him off. The couple then killed Mei by smothering her with a blanket.
According to neighbours, the couple had divorced after Tan was “caught in bed with another man”. In order to win her husband back, Tan allegedly promised to “find him a virgin” to have sex with.
After Mei was reported missing by her family police found surveillance footage of her helping Tan back to the couple’s apartment. Later footage showed the pregnant woman and a man dragging a large suitcase out of the building, which they put inside a car and drove away.
The couple were arrested, after which the woman reportedly confessed to the girl’s murder. They refused to say where the body was buried, only that it was in a nearby wasteland.
One of Mei’s friends uploaded a haunting screenshot of the girl’s final WeChat message to her before she was killed: “I’ve just helped a pregnant aunty to her doorstep.”
