Police have arrested a man in Longhua, Shenzhen, suspected of murdering Lai Zengyutong, the 16 year old high school student who may have revealed her whereabouts by posting personal information on Weibo.
Police posted the arrest on their own Weibo yesterday afternoon, announcing that a man surenamed Meng had been arrested in connection with the young girl’s tragic murder. The man, who is from Guizhou, reportedly admitted to killing her. Meng is 19 years old.
The news has predictably become a hot topic on Weibo and one netizen managed to unearth Meng’s QQ space profile.
The girl’s relatives posted the news on her old Weibo, thanking people for their good wishes and expressing hope for a just sentence.
