Police combed through bushland in Berowra on Wednesday, June 20, in an attempt to locate the body of Sydney woman Qi Yu who was allegedly murdered by her teenage housemate.
Police believe her car was driven to the bushland in Berowra between 8:30 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. on the same night.
Yu, 28, went missing sometime between 7 p.m. on June 8 and 8:30 p.m. June 9. Her friends saw her at her residence on June 8 on Loch Street in Campsie and her family last contacted Yu around 7:15 p.m on that same evening.
Following Yu’s disappearance, 19-year-old Shuo Dong was charged with murdering Yu, his housemate.
He refused to undergo forensic procedures, which police say is “setting the matter back a substantial amount in relation to DNA evidence,” 9News reported.
A shocked neighbour who lived directly next door told news.com.au that Yu was a very quiet and “kind” person. Although the neighbour rarely saw Yu, when they did meet, Yu would bow her head and politely say “hello.” The last time she saw Yu was three weeks before the disappearance.
