Chinese student found dead in Perth suburb

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Jiao Dan, a 22-year-old Chinese student from Changsha, in Hunan province, was found dead at about 6:00 a.m. on October 9 in the Perth, Western Australia suburb Innaloo by passers-by.

The cause-of-death has not yet been confirmed. The woman is believed to have been returning home from her cleaning job in the city on Monday. She was found naked below the waist and with 'facial injuries'.

Miss Dan was recorded alighting from a train at Stirling train station at approximately 11 p.m., even though close friend Min Ding said she had warned the Edith Cowan University student to not use the train at night, as it was 'not safe'. Police have not yet charged anyone over the incident.
