    Default Grad student decapitated at Virginia Tech

    Chinese grad student decapitated by knife at Virginia Tech
    RAW STORY
    Published: Thursday January 22, 2009



    A female Chinese graduate student has been decapitated by a fellow student at Virginia Tech, the scene of the worst school shooting in US history in 2007, police said Thursday.

    At approximately 7:00 pm Wednesday (0000 GMT Thursday), Xin Yang, a 22-year-old graduate student from Beijing, was killed at an Au Bon Pain cafe on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, university officials said.

    They added that emergency contact records suggest that Yang and the student who murdered her, Haiyang Zhu from Ningbo, China, knew each other. According to officials, witnesses said Zhu, 25, attacked Yang with a knife.

    "There were seven witnesses in the cafe. There had been no argument, no shouting" when the young woman was attacked, said Virginia Tech spokesman Mark Owczarski, confirming that Yang and been decapitated.

    "This is horrible and tragic. Especially when we know that Virginia Tech has got its share of hardship and horror."

    In April 2007, Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old Virginia Tech student born in South Korea, shot 32 fellow classmates and teachers to death before killing himself.

    "The tragic attack on campus this week has no doubt revived terrible memories for countless members of the Hokie family," Virginia Governor Tim Kaine said in a statement offering his condolences.

    Zhu was charged with first-degree murder and was being held at a county jail. He had not had a record with university or local police, the school indicated.

    Yang had arrived at Virginia Tech in early January to begin studies in accounting. Zhu was a PhD graduate student in agriculture and applied economics.

    1. No offense intended, but what's with ethnic Chinese and decapitating people (greyhound bus incident anyone)?

    2. How long before someone chimes in with 'why didn't someone do something to help this poor girl' statement? As I have stated multiple times before, I would say it is the norm for people NOT to react in heroic ways in these types of incidents. It's only in the movies where you have jackie chan's and bruce willis' doing a spinning roundhouse kick to disarm a knife lol.

    Ugh I used to eat at that Au Bon Pain!

    Seriously was the stabbing not enough, why the need for decapitation?

    There's plenty of ethnic Chinese who don't go around decapitating people. Two unrelated incidents do not make a trend.

    The Hokies is the team name for VA Tech...Hokie family=Va Tech community.

    Well, thank God she wasn't shot (sarcasm). The minute I heard she was decapitated/throat cut I knew it was relationship violence of some sort.

    It's an Au Bon Pain, so they probably give everybody a serrated knife to get through that ridiculously overrated, rock-hard French bread.

    Well actually we were ACC champs and recently won the BCS Bowl!!! Football counts for a lot at this school.

    A Hokie is our school mascot, technically it's a fighting gobbler(turkey). At orientation all I remember was the term Hokie kept being referenced to a castrated turkey...go figure

    No kidding! If my (hypothetical) kid wanted to go there, I'd probably say "hell no!"
