A man living in Italy was murdered by his ex-boyfriend and stuffed into a suitcase.
Hu Congliang, 20, was killed by his 17-year-old ex-partner and his underage friends after he reportedly threatened to release explicit images of him after he was dumped.
Police, who are questioning the five suspects responsible for the murder, believe the 17-year-old invited his friends to Congliang’s apartment where they suffocated him with a pillow and stuffed his body into a suitcase.
Deputy police chief Marcello Castello told local media: “From what we understand so far, the punitive mission was prompted by the photographs.”
“All five say they don’t speak Italian, which we don’t believe. They are all underage and have been utterly impassive. Just like their parents, who have been completely uncooperative.”
Asia One has reported that after the murder, the five boys said goodbye to Congliang’s mother, left the apartment and told her that he had left earlier on.
However, Conglian’s mother discovered the body after noticing the suitcase wasn’t in its usual spot.
One of the five killers turned himself into police voluntarily while the other four were arrested.
