A decomposed body was discovered in an abandoned dormitory at Shanghai University’s Jiading campus yesterday
Two students found the body hanging from a doorway. Police investigating the case said that they were unable to identify the body immediately because it was so badly decomposed, iFeng News reports.
It’s believed that the deceased is a male postgraduate student who’s been missing since November 15. Police have carried out DNA tests and are waiting on the results, while the official Weibo account of Shanghai University yesterday afternoon confirmed that it was the same person.
Online, some Weibo users who knew the student expressed their grief after reading the confirmation.
User “Jenny颖-柒页” wrote: “I used to have class with him. He is a very warm-hearted person. I can’t believe it’s him.”
“He just started his postgraduate studies. It’s such a pity,” said user “SUNNY侯思含”.
