I think you are talking about Anita, from Kaohsiung. She was a school agent. You know the folks who help recruiting teachers for schools. Very well known in Kaohsiung among the foreign community. I found out this morning through a co-teacher whose friend had to go identify the body yesterday. They found her cell phone and he was one of the last person to have had communications with her so the police asked him to ID the body.

Needless to say, said co-teacher looked pretty out of it and tired this morning. He was a friend of Anita.

What a horrible story... No one has been convicted for the crime yet, so I would hold off before making assumptions based on what is heard in the news.

RIP, Anita.

Taiwan is a very small town. The first thing I thought when I saw this headline, was....."One of my friends?...." Well, my relief that it happened in another town, people I don't know. (I have quite a few friends with Filipina wives.) What a horrible tragedy.

A friend of mine said his wife heard on t.v. they are now questioning a Canadian teacher involved in drugs and possibly a Japanese teacher.
I don't believe any of the crap on t.v. news here though and won't even trust the papers to get the story more than 25% correct for at least a week.

Which nationality teacher it was who cut her in half does
not matter. Taiwan newspapers will make it anyway looking more bad than it is, blaming the long nose community again as drug dealers,butchers and rapists. I express my condolences to her family and friends. Horible...

Kaohsiung Murder Case

Postby Feiren » 18 Sep 2007, 09:16

FYI:

The China Times is reporting that the police have arrested US citizen David Fillion in connection with the murder of a 48 year old Taiwanese agent Chiu Meiyun. Chiu's body was found in a bag at the entrance to Yancheng St. Lane 40 last Saturday night. Police connected Fillion to the case through security camera footage showing Fillion's Filipina girlfriend Armia dumping the bagged body using a scooter borrowed from a Japanese friend. They are not sure that Armia knew what was in the bag.

The police have found and tested blood stains in Fillion's apartment that they say confirm that the murder took place at Fillion's apartment on a lane off Wumiao Rd. They believe that the motive for the crime was a dispute over debts and a plan to open a Buxiban in a partnership with Chiu that fell through. Neighbors heard an intense argument on the night of the 12th.

The paper says that AIT has demanded that police refrain from announcing that they have solved the case to protect Fillion's human rights. That clearly didn't stop them from releasing details of their investigation to the local media, which is of course standard practice here.

There are some pretty bog standard nasty follow-up pieces in which neighbors describe Fillion's habit of regularly bringing home different women of different nationalities, his taste for Taiwan beer he "likes Taiwan", his solitary drinking, and his slovenly appearance.

Reader comments on the story urge police to crackdown on foreign teachers because this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Update: Foreign press agencies have already translatedthe story from Apple Daily.

What? Like foreigners don't kill people too?

It's a horrific murder for sure, and most likely about money, which makes it a stupid horrific murder.

Where these people hail from, and what they look like means squat.
