FBI Docs: U Of I Kidnapper May Have Tried To Grab Another
(Urbana, IL) — Investigators say the man charged with kidnapping and killing a Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois may have tried to snatch another young woman. The revelation is part of a wave of filings from Brendt Christensen’s lawyers as they prepare for trial next month. Christensen’s lawyers want the details of the story, that a young woman picked Christensen out of a line up as the man who posed as an undercover police officer and tried to get her into his car, kept out of court. The filings also reveal that Christensen’s girlfriend wore a wire to gather information on Christensen during last summer’s vigil for Ying Ying Zhang, who investigators believe Christensen killed.
