Guard arrested over water tank killing

A SECURITY guard at a residential complex in Minhang District has been arrested over the murder of a young woman who lived there.

The 18-year-old victim, surnamed Wang, was strangled and while still alive dumped in a water tank this month.

Minhang District People’s Procuratorate say the suspect, surnamed Zhu, a 23-year-old migrant worker from the southwest Guizhou Province, admitted killing Wang after he tried to rape her.

Wang discovered her bag was missing about 4am on October 12 and asked Zhu, on duty at the Kangcheng residential community, for help, it is claimed.

In a basement, Zhu attacked Wang and when she fought back strangled her until unconscious, and then threw her into a water tank, said prosecutors.

Police held Zhu after viewing security camera footage.
