TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Police in Taichung yesterday found remains of a woman reported missing last April after her alleged killer disclosed the location of where the body was buried, officials said.
The woman, surnamed Chen, a college student in her 20s, was allegedly strangled and buried near a river in Taichung by the suspect, surnamed Huang, with whom she had had an extra-marital affair, the police officials said.
Chen, a resident of New Taipei City, went missing after she was last seen outside the Taichung station of the Taiwan High-Speed Rail in April 2012, the officials said.
The married suspect was detained for some time after firearms and drugs were uncovered at his residence following a police raid in connection with Chen's disappearance, but he had not divulged the whereabouts of the woman's body until yesterday, the officials said.
Chen first met Huang when she sought help from him regarding problems with her boyfriend in 2012, but the pair ended up having an affair, officials said, adding the suspect allegedly killed her after she asked to end the relationship.
