    Default Murder suspected after body found in car

    POLICE are investigating a suspected murder after two women were shot, one fatally, in Balga last night.

    Police said residents of Stedham Way contacted them about 7:30pm to report a serious assault and a "loud bang", after which two men were seen to drive away at speed.

    Police arrived to discover the body of a 27-year-old woman in a car and her badly injured 53-year-old mother lying nearby. Both had sustained gunshot wounds.

    The injured woman was taken to Joondalup Health Campus then transported to Royal Perth Hospital, where she is in a serious but stable condition.

    The street was cordoned off and police were still on the scene this morning.

    Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    POLICE have described the apparent murder of a 27-year-old woman and the brutal bashing of her mother in Balga as a planned "blitz attack'' as they step up the hunt for a killer.

    Today, detectives revealed it appeared the women had been ambushed as they pulled into the driveway of the Stedham Way home about 7.30pm last night.

    Police were called to the property after reports of an assault. But when officers arrived, they found a 53-year-old woman lying on the driveway with severe head wounds.

    Her 27-year-old daughter, a young mother, was found slumped in the front seat of a car parked in the driveway.

    Police would not say what weapons had been used in the horrific attack.

    "It was a blitz attack. It was very brutal,'' said Detective Inspector David Bryson, from the Major Crime Squad.

    "There were a number of weapons used at the scene...I can't actually disclose that at this time. Suffice to say, it was a very violent attack.''

    Det-Insp Bryson said police were examining possible motives. At least one man is understood to have fled the scene.

    He said there had been several reports of cars in the vicinity overnight and police were working to conclusively determine the make and model of any vehicles of interest.

    "We keep a very open mind. We are not tunnel-visioned in any way. We look at all theories that we may have," he said.

    Police have not yet located or spoken to the woman's husband. They were interested to speak with him as he was next-of-kin but stressed he was not a person-of-interest at this stage.

    The older woman remains in Royal Perth Hospital in a critical but stable condition under police guard.

    "She is currently in a critical but a stable condition,'' Det-Insp Bryson said.

    "At this stage, we have been informed that she will not die, however obviously we have grave concerns for her health over the next couple of days.''

    The 27-year-old woman had rented a rear unit at the address.

    Police said reports that her child was at the scene at the time were unfounded.

    Witnesses reported the offender as a 25-year-old man, of Asian appearance, 174cm tall, black straight, collar-length hair and medium build. He was wearing a dark long-sleeve top with a jumper and pants.

    Anyone who witnessed the crime or has information is urged to call CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.

    POLICE have revealed that the man homicide detectives are hunting over the Balga "blitz attack'' may have lain in wait for two hours before ambushing two women in the driveway of their home.

    Major Crime Squad detectives today stepped up their hunt for the killer as they called for public help to find a white sedan, which was seen parked outside the Stedham Way unit before the fatal hit at 7.30pm on Thursday night.

    Police discovered a 53-year-old woman lying on the driveway with severe head wounds. Her 27-year-old daughter, a mother of a two-year-old child, was found dead, slumped in the front seat of her car.

    The call for public help to find the white medium-sized sedan came as police confirmed two weapons - a hammer and a speargun - had been found at the scene.

    It is understood detectives have seized footage from a neighbour's security camera in a bid to identify the wanted man.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Fyfe said the women's car had driven into the communal driveway of the unit complex and was 2m from the carport when the white sedan blocked the driveway preventing escape.

    ``From what we understand, the vehicle was parked there for two hours prior to the attack on the two victims. We aren't sure if there was one or two people in the car,'' Det-Sen-Sgt Fyfe said.

    ``He didn't pull in until they were far enough down that driveway so they couldn't take any evasive action.

    ``Several neighbours rang 000 as the attack was occurring. The first attending police arrived a matter of minutes after the offender had left.''

    Det-Sen-Sgt Fyfe said investigators believed other weapons were also used to inflict fatal injuries to the young woman and in the brutal bashing of her mother, who had been holidaying from China.

    While the speargun had been fired into a neighbour's window, it did not appear to have been used to cause any injuries to either women, he said. Forensic tests are being conducted on the hammer to determine if it was used in the attacks on the women. Her car is also under examination.

    Today , Major Crime Squad detectives liaised with the Chinese Consulate in a bid to track family of the two women to advise next-of-kin of the attack.

    But Det Sen-Sgt Fyfe conceded police were no closer to establishing a motive to the attack.

    He said officers had not yet located or spoken to the dead woman's husband, who is believed to be in China after leaving Australia early last month. The dead woman had separated from her husband in April, but he had recently returned to China.

    The 53-year-old woman remains in a coma in Royal Perth Hospital. She is under police guard and yet to be interviewed by detectives.

    The dead woman's two-year-old child is in the care of the Department of Child Protection.

    Witnesses reported the offender as a 25-year-old man, of Asian appearance, 174cm tall, black straight, collar-lengthed hair and medium build. He was wearing a dark long-sleeve top with a jumper and pants.

    POLICE hope security vision of two cars near the home of 27-year-old Balga murder victim Dan Sun may provide a breakthrough in the case.

    Police today released CCTV footage from a neighbour's property showing two cars police say are now of interest.

    The first, a white Magna sedan, which was seen parked directly opposite the victim's Stedham Way house, was captured on film leaving the street.

    Witnesses say the car had been parked for up to two hours outside Dan Sun's house before she was murdered and her mother brutally attacked.

    The Magna pulled into the victimís driveway as she arrived home with her mother, blocking in Ms Sun's car.

    Mrs Sun was murdered in the front seat of her car and her 53-year-old mother remains in a critical but stable condition, with severe head wounds, in Royal Perth Hospital.

    The neighbour's security vision also shows a grey CLK Mercedes coupe driving away from the scene around the time of the murder.

    Police spokeswoman Ros Weatherall said Dan Sun's father has returned from China to be with his wife while arranging a funeral for his daughter.

    The estranged husband of Mrs Sun remains in China and has indicated to police that he will not return to Australia.

    Police are urging the public to contact CrimeStoppers with any information about the cars which were captured on film.

    A police investigation into the murder of a Balga mother has uncovered connections between the killing, Perth's sex trade and the abduction of the victim's child in China.

    The West Australian has confirmed that five months before 27-year-old Dan Sun was killed in the driveway of her rented home on September 30, her two-year-old daughter Kiki was snatched from a house by unknown men in the Chinese city of Shenyang near the North Korean border.

    Ms Sun was in China at the time visiting her parents.

    She sought help from the Australian Embassy and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in May and June to get the child back and was eventually reunited with Kiki in Perth.

    In April, Ms Sun had separated from her husband Nuo "Arnold" Zhao and moved out of the couple's Mindarie home with her daughter to a rental unit in Stedham Way, Balga.

    Mr Zhao, described by police this week as a person of interest in the crime, was holidaying in China at the time of his wife's murder and has told detectives he has no plans to return to Australia to collect Kiki.

    The 31-year-old part-time security guard drove a luxury Mercedes-Benz coupe, owns two Perth houses and was having a third built in Quinns Rocks when his wife was killed.

    It can now be revealed that one of two cars captured on a surveillance camera circling Stedham Way in the hours leading up to the murder was Mr Zhao's Mercedes.

    During the planned attack Ms Sun's 53-year-old mother, Jie Shen Kang, was struck repeatedly with a hammer and remains in a critical condition in hospital. A spear gun was also fired at her but missed.

    Police are trying to determine who was in the distinctive silver coupe and a white Mitsubishi Magna used to block Ms Sun's car in the driveway before she was killed with a knife.

    It's possible that those responsible for the murder flew into Perth from overseas and have left the country.

    The West Australian understands police are investigating the links between Mr Zhao, an Inglewood brothel and the supply of young Asian women to Perth's sex market.

    He regularly visited the Beaufort Street brothel and was good friends with one of the managers.

    "The husband was my friend, she was my friend," the manager told The West Australian.

    "Yeah, he good man, good friend. I already tell the police, so I nothing else to say."

    Mr Zhao's mother, Tie Pei Song, was living at her son's Mindarie home and taking care of Kiki at the time of Ms Sun's murder.

    She flew out of Australia on October 11, four days before police seized the Mercedes.

    "The woman was terrified by what had happened and all the media attention," a neighbour of Mr Zhao's said.

    Apart from working as a security guard with his pet German shepherd, Mr Zhao was a director of two private Perth companies - Vast Gain and ZN. Police believe they were involved in importing products from China.

    He had married Ms Sun, who also used the name Vivian, at the Perth Convention Centre in April 2008. Before she was murdered, she had been studying English and operated a fingernail painting business from home.

    Ms Sun's father is in Perth planning a funeral for his daughter.
