Final Weblog Fingers Killer
A Chinese student in Queens, NY, was tied to a chair and stabbed repeatedly in the chest with a butcher’s knife. His sister, the ex-girlfriend of the killer, arrived a short time later and met a similar fate. What the killer didn’t expect was a web log entry that placed him at the scene.
Jin Lin, 23, has been charged with the first-degree murder of Sharon and Simon Ng, of Flushing.
Nineteen-year-old Ng’s weblog stated that his sister’s ex-boyfriend was waiting downstairs, smoking and pacing, while Ng look for the would be killer’s fishing poles. That was a short time before the slayings.
Nin confessed to police after his alibi crumbled in the wake of the web log’s proclamation placing him at the scene. He said he intended to rob the siblings to finance his return trip to China.
Sam Cheung, a cousin of the Ngs, is still in disbelief.
“It’s unbelievable that it was one single guy!” said Cheung, 24. “He took two lives. How can one person do this?”
The web log proves an eerie read with a string of R.I.P. posts and heavenly well wishing.
