A Tribute to Xi Zhou

Newcastle University student Xi Zhou and her boyfriend, Zhen Xing Yang, were savagely murdered in their home some time towards the end of last week. 

By chance my wife and I were served by Xi Zhou at the city centre restaurant where she worked only the Sunday before and we were both hugely impressed by her charm, vitality and efficiency.  The BBC reports that her colleagues at the restaurant found her a ‘joy to work with’ which I can well believe.  Near neighbours confirmed that they too had the highest possible opinion of the couple but were to upset to talk to the media except for the briefest of interviews.

Their untimely death is a great loss to the University, the City of Newcastle and, most of all, their families.

Good luck to the police in tracking down this evil killer.
