FBI宣布已逮捕涉嫌绑架章莹颖男子

A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a visiting Chinese graduate student last seen June 9 on the University of Illinois campus, the US attorney's office for Central Illinois said Friday.
伊利诺伊州中部联邦检察官办公室6月30日表示,一名与6月9日伊利诺伊大学中国访问学者失踪案有关的男子已被逮捕。

Investigators with the FBI think the student, Yingying Zhang, 26, is probably dead, a news release from the attorney's office said.
该州联邦检察官办公室发布的消息称,美国联邦调查局(FBI)调查人员认为,26岁的章莹颖很可能已经死亡。

Brendt Christensen, 27, of Champaign, Illinois, will face a charge of kidnapping, the news release said.
消息称,27岁的布伦特•克里斯滕森将面临绑架指控。他来自伊利诺伊州香槟郡。

Christensen was under surveillance Thursday when agents overheard him saying he kidnapped Zhang, a criminal complaint says. Christensen said he took Zhang back to his apartment, the complaint adds.
一份刑事起诉书称,FBI探员29日监听到克里斯滕森说自己绑架了章莹颖。克里斯滕森称,他把章莹颖带回了自己的公寓。

美国联邦检察官办公室和FBI发声明称:

"Based on this, and other facts uncovered during the investigation of this matter, law enforcement agents believe that Ms. Zhang is no longer alive." 
“基于此翻言论以及在调查过程中发现的其他事实,执法人员认为章莹颖已经死亡。”

警方披露更多案件细节 嫌犯曾为该校助教

The FBI says Christensen was driving the black Saturn Astra that was captured on security camera video picking up Zhang the afternoon of June 9.
FBI称,克里斯滕森驾驶的黑色土星车就是6月9日下午监控录像拍到的接走章莹颖的那辆。

据警方介绍,在接近章莹颖前,犯罪车辆一直在附近兜圈子(circling the area before approaching Zhang)。

随后,警方确定在香槟郡(Champaign County)共有18辆四门土星牌阿斯特拉车注册登记,而其中一辆车主为克里斯滕森。

当地时间6月12日晚,警方到犯罪嫌疑人家询问章莹颖失踪当日他的行踪。

犯罪嫌疑人起初表示,自己记不清了(he could not remember),然后改口称自己可能是睡了一天或打了一天游戏(either sleeping or playing video games all day)。

警察搜查了其车辆,并未找到或带走任何东西(did not locate or take anything from it)。

6月14日,警察对监控视频进一步分析发现嫌犯车辆有天窗,而且前排副驾一侧轮毂破损(had a sunroof and a cracked hubcap on the front passenger side)。

随后,警官返回了克里斯滕森住处,确认其车辆状况与监控录像中的车辆吻合。

6月14日,美国伊利诺伊州中部地区联邦法院批准在嫌犯车辆里寻找章莹颖失踪时身上的物件,包括痕迹证据。

此后,犯罪嫌疑人再次改口。

On June 15, Christensen admitted picking up Zhang, the complaint says, but he told the FBI that day he let her out just a few blocks away.
6月15日,克里斯滕森承认他让章莹颖上了车,但是,他对FBI表示,当天自己在几个街区外的地方将她放下。

Christensen claimed he made a wrong turn at some point and the woman panicked, then he let her out of his car a few blocks from where he picked her up.
克里斯滕森宣称,他转错弯后,该名女性很惊慌,然后就在几个街区外把她放下车了。

2017年6月15日, FBI探员申请得到联邦搜查令,检查嫌犯持有的手机。

搜查发现在2017年4月19日嫌疑人曾经在Fetlife(一个特殊性癖网站)上访问名为“绑架入门”("Abduction 101")的论坛,并且还阅读了标题为“完美的绑架幻想”(“perfect abduction fantasy”)、“如何绑架”("planning a kidnapping")等帖子。

6月16日开始,当局开始监视克里斯滕森。6月29日警方监听到他在一段录音中说自己绑架了章莹颖,把她带回了公寓,并违反她的意愿,把她囚禁在自己公寓。

The criminal complaint also says a search of the suspect's car revealed the front passenger door, next to where Zhang would have been sitting, was cleaned to a "more diligent extent."
本案刑事起诉书还称,对嫌疑人汽车的搜查显示,章莹颖所坐的副驾驶侧车门被“大力清理过”。

目前章莹颖仍下落不明,当警察数次询问克里斯滕森把章莹颖藏在哪里时,他都表示要找律师,并保持沉默。警方正极力搜集证据。

Christensen was a graduate student in the physics department and a teaching assistant until May, a University of Illinois professor told CNN.
伊利诺伊大学一位教授告诉美国有线电视新闻网,克里斯滕森直到今年5月还是该校物理系的研究生兼助教。

"Everybody is shocked by this," said Lance Cooper, an associate head for graduate studies in the department. "There were no flags, no discipline issues with him, no problem with his teaching, no problems with his coursework."
物理系研究生院副院长兰斯•库珀称:“所有人都被此事震惊了,他没有收到过警告,没有纪律问题,教学没有毛病,学业也没有问题。”

Christensen's LinkedIn profile states he graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013 with bachelor's degrees in physics and math. Christensen described himself as a Ph.D. candidate at U. of I. since January of 2014, researching experimental condensed matter physics.
克里斯滕森的领英主页介绍,2013年,他从威斯康辛大学麦迪森分校毕业,获得物理学及数学学士学位。2014年1月开始成为伊利诺伊大学博士研究生,研究实验凝聚态物理。

Cooper said he didn't think Christensen would have had any academic interactions with Zhang, who came to the United States within the past two months.
库珀称,他不认为克里斯滕森会和章莹颖有任何学术上的交流,章两个月前才刚到美国。

Cooper said Christensen mentioned in spring 2016 that he was married and that he and his wife were going to use the next year to decide what their plans were while he completed his master's program. 
库珀表示,2016年春天克里斯滕森提及自己结婚了,在硕士学业结束后,他和妻子想用接下来的一年决定一下二人的计划。

David Meldgin, a teaching assistant in the physics department, said he had an office next door to Christensen for two years but they spoke only a few times.
物理系的助教大卫•摩尔根表示,他在克里斯滕森隔壁办公已经有两年了,但是他们只说过几次话。

"He was a quiet person in meetings, but he always helped students who needed help." Meldgin said. "I'm really surprised."
摩尔根说:“会议上他是一个很安静的人,但是他总是为那些需要帮助的学生提供帮助,我真的太意外了。”

目前,美国联邦调查局已将相关情况告知了章莹颖的家人。获悉这一消息后,中国驻芝加哥总领馆随即联系章莹颖家人,对其表示深切慰问。总领馆对罪犯绑架和伤害章莹颖同学的行径表示强烈愤慨和谴责,要求美国司法部门将罪犯绳之以法,还章莹颖和家人以公道。

此外,伊大校长琼斯(Robert Jones)也发表声明表示:

"This is a senseless and devastating loss of a promising young woman and a member of our community. There is nothing we can do to ease the sadness or grief for her family and friends, but we can and we will come together to support them in any way we can in these difficult days ahead."
“这是一个毫无意义的、灾难性的损失,我们失去了一位前途光明的年轻女性,失去了我们社区的一员。我们无法平复她家人和朋友的悲痛与难过,但我们会在未来艰难的日子里携手共进,尽一切可能支持他们。”

 

章莹颖案嫌犯将出庭受审 罪名成立或被判死刑

 

Christensen's first court appearance is at 10 a.m. Monday in federal court in Urbana. It is unclear whether Christensen, who is still in custody, has an attorney.
克里斯滕森的首次庭审将于当地时间3日上午10点在乌尔瓦纳联邦法院开庭。克里斯滕森仍被拘留,目前还不确定是否拥有律师。

据华人律师王志东称,虽然伊利诺伊州法律没有死刑,但该案的起诉方是联邦,而不是伊利诺伊州。而以联邦的名义起诉,便可以绑架致死的罪名将罪犯判处死刑。这表示检方是在寻求对罪犯施以最严酷的刑法。
