Court told of family shock over murder

THE brother of a Chinese woman who was murdered at her Framesby home told the Port Elizabeth High Court yesterday he was initially under the impression she had died as a result of natural causes.

Chin-Ming Hsu said he touched his sister Ruey-Lien Lin’s cheek to feel if she was warm and asked their doctor not to touch the body repeatedly when they discovered it in September 2011 – because of his Buddhist religious beliefs.

According to the Buddhist religion it was recommended that a body should not be touched for up to eight hours following a person’s final breath. – Lee-Anne Butler
