‘Worse than an animal’: Mother enraged as killer claims Amanda Zhao might be alive
In 2002, Yang Baoying flew from China to Vancouver to identify her daughter Amanda Zhao’s body.
The 21-year-old English student’s remains had been found stuffed in a suitcase in Mission and Yang’s identification of her daughter was also confirmed by a police DNA test.
Yang returned to Beijing with Zhao’s ashes. She had been “brought home,” her mother said.
More than 20 years later, any sense of closure that act offered has been torn apart by the claims of Zhao’s convicted killer, Ang Li, that he was framed by China’s government and Zhao might not be dead at all.
Li told New Zealand’s Herald on Sunday newspaper that Zhao could be “still alive and walking around somewhere,” as he described himself as a “political target.”
