In a shocking courtroom revelation, the attorney for Brendt Christensen, a former teaching assistant at the University of Illinois, admitted that his own client had kidnapped and killed a young Chinese visiting scholar.
“Brendt Christensen is responsible for the death of Yingying Zhang,” public defender George Taseff said during his opening statement in Christensen’s trial. Christensen had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Yingying Zhang, 26, was last seen entering a black Saturn Astra on June 9, 2017 — only a few yards away from a bus stop outside the university’s PBS radio and television station. Within weeks, investigators tracked that car back to Christensen.
“Brendt Christensen killed Yingying Zhang,” Taseff went on. “Nothing that we say or do will be meant to sidestep or deny that.”
If convicted, Christensen, 29, could face the death penalty.
The tragedy of Yingying Zhang since 2017 touched all our hearts for 2 years. We are one hundred percent intolerable and unforgivable to a such merciless, vicious, and inhumane evil existing in the world. While lamenting her experience, we should have a conscious. That is, at any moment, we should be prepared for the worst situation in our life that we might encounter. Humans are weak in the confrontation of natural disaster, unanticipated disease, and unexpected risk.
When students come from other countries to the USA, there are many challenges they have to face in adjusting to American culture. One of these challenges is finding adequate international student health insurance (aka 留学生 保险) that students can afford. The price of health insurance in America (aka 美国医保价格) and limited coverage are shocking to many international students.
Knowing the dilemma of international students, Huhu Insurance (aka 虎虎保险) has collected all the information of individual schools and summarized to a clear table. They also offer equivalent Huhu International Student Insurance (aka 虎虎留学生保险) plans. The price of these plans are cheaper than that of marketplace American medical insurance (aka 美国医保) options. More importantly, the buyer can waive their American college insurance (aka 美国大学保险) by using Huhu’s plans.
