student jumps to her death to escape rapist

This is a really awful, horrifying story out of Australia... A Chinese student died and her boyfriend suffered serious injuries when they fell naked from their third-floor balcony in a desperate attempt to escape a knife-wielding rapist: Young Liao Wei killed for $200 after hour-long rape ordeal.

After following a female visitor into the building, the man forced four terrified apartment occupants to strip at knifepoint in their living room before holding them for an hour, repeatedly sexually assaulting two of them as the others were forced to watch. He then stole their money.

Then 18-year-old Liao "Elva" Wei and her boyfriend Tae Wook "Chris" Han made their decision to flee their captor by jumping off the balcony, falling 25m on to concrete. Liao died. Han landed feet first, shattering his legs, pelvis and suffering spinal injuries. What a nightmare. Sickening, humiliating and tragic.
All that, and the attacker apparently made off with less than $200. Police have described the attacker as 175cm tall, of solid build, with dark complexion. He was casually dressed, had short dark hair and aged in his 30s. This man needs to be caught and punished.

UPDATE: A 26-year-old man, Brendan Denison, has been remanded in custody and charged with a total of 21 offenses, including murder, in connection with the horrific death of Liao Wei: Brendan Dennison in custody over Sydney apartment balcony death.
