The impoverished family of a four-year-old girl who was murdered and dismembered over the New Year holiday in Guangzhou lashed out yesterday at Panyu district police and officials, accusing them of insensitivity over their plight. Police found the dismembered body of Li Lingli, the daughter of Hunan migrant workers, in a small fridge in a rented flat and arrested the tenant on Friday. Police announced late on Monday night a 33-year-old Sichuan migrant worker had confessed to the murder. The suspect lived just metres from the victim's home and was identified by his surname, Qiao, although he was known to neighbours as Zhang or Ah He. Police said they were questioning Qiao, who was also undergoing psychiatric assessment. Breaking three days of silence over the case, Lingli's family yesterday said they took no comfort in the arrest. Outside their small, single-room home, the victim's 26-year-old father, Li Biao, complained that police had asked them to pay for the cremation of their daughter's body. 'We have already lost a daughter and now they ask us to pay fees we cannot afford. Is there any justice?' Mr Li said. Holding photographs of his daughter, Mr Li said a compensation payout was the family's only hope of raising money for the cremation and taking Lingli's ashes home before the Lunar New Year. He also blamed police for the girl's death because they failed to find any clues during their initial search of the neighbourhood. Lingli was reported missing on January 2 and a police search of Qiao's 161 sq ft flat around noon that day turned up no evidence of her. Mr Li said police did not allow them to enter Qiao's flat to help with the search. When Lingli's grandmother found bloodstains outside Qiao's home that afternoon, police discovered the dismembered body inside, the family said. Residents said that in the past four days, at least six families had moved out of the neighbourhood over fears for their safety.
