student fatally stabbed at virginia tech

Oh no. Oh hell no. On Wednesday night at Virginia Tech, a female student was stabbed to death on campus at a cafe in the Graduate Life Center. The suspect? 25-year-old Haiyang Zhu, who was taken into custody when campus police responded to an emergency call about a man with a knife: Va. Tech student fatally stabbed; suspect caught.

Zhu was charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond. Just when you thought people were kind of forgetting the notion that Asian men are violent crazies, this happens. At Virginia Tech, of all places. My heart goes out to the family of the victim. My heart does not go out to the stabbing guy. More here: Stabbing death in Donaldson Brown.

UPDATE: Some more details on the murder at Virginia Tech... and it's pretty gruesome. The victim, 22-year-old Xin Yang, had arrived on campus only two weeks ago from Beijing to begin graduate studies in accounting. When authorities arrived on the scene last night, they discovered Yang's decapitated body, the suspect Haiyang Zhu, and a large kitchen knife -- the murder weapon: Virginia Tech releases gruesome details of student's on-campus murder. What the hell happened here?
