Prosecutors bring suspect to murder scene to locate body

Prosecutors yesterday brought a suspect to a murder scene in Miaoli County, where a female victim was killed and left in a bucket filled with cement last October, to locate the body, local media reported.

Human bones were found scattered near quiet mountain roads close to Liyu Lake at around noon time.

Police said the deceased, surnamed Chao, 45, was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend and his friends about nine months ago.

Chao's 40 some family members arrived on site around 9 a.m. to wait for the arrival of the suspect, surnamed Chang, 29; the police blocked the area out to avoid too many people and local journalists from disturbing the scene.

According to local reporters, Chao's family members yelled at Chang when he arrived in a car with prosecutors at around 11 a.m.

Police said Chang cried and apologized when the first batch of bones were found.

They told local reporters that Chang used to go fishing in the neighborhood so he was very familiar with the location and was aware how unnoticeable it was.

Police said the cement probably didn't dry soon enough before the body rolled out of the bucket, causing some of her remains to scatter around the area.

Whether the body was decapitated or not, further investigation is required, police added.
