This site is dedicated to Diana OBrien.
In the summer of 2008, months before China would host the Olympics, Diana O’Brien left her small Canadian town for Shanghai to build her burgeoning international modeling career. Two weeks after landing in China, O’Brien’s roommate and fellow model Charlotte Wood found her in the stairwell of their Shanghai apartment building, stabbed 22 times.
Just five days later, the Chinese police arrested Chen Jun, an 18-year-old migrant laborer from a nearby rural province, having found him in possession of O’Brien’s belongings. With China’s official conviction rate for murder cases at 99.9%, the only way to have a chance at avoiding the death sentence is to confess. Unsurprisingly, Chen did.
