Four women, all of whom were performers in a nightclub, were murdered in the past 15 days in Shenzhen’s Luohu District, according to local media. Their bodies were chopped to pieces and disposed of into the sewage system. Two men have been arrested on suspicion of the murders.

When it was reported that sewage pipes below the district’s Chunfeng Road were blocked, workers discovered that mutilated human corpses had been disposed there. Two men who live in the Chanfengwan residential area are thought to be responsible, according to local print media.

On June 12, a man surnamed Chen reported his wife, surnamed Tan, missing at the district’s Nanhu Police Station. Her phone had been switched off since June 7 and they had not made contact since. Police made the case one of their top priorities when two more women, who lived in the same area and did the same job as Tan, were reported missing on the 19th and 20th respectively.

On June 21, two suspects, one surnamed Xie and one surnamed Lin were arrested, and murder weapons were found in their possession. It emerged that the men were pretending to recruit women from Bida’ao night club, and they would later murder them. The recruitment sign is still on the wall outside the club.

Neighbours expressed their disbelief at what had happened, with one woman saying she feared for her own safety.

Anybody who believes they can help the investigation is encouraged to call 3331123.
