The Saturday night double murder and attempted suicide at Jianye Lu near Marco Polo Hotel in Xiamen has shocked the Xiamen community. This otherwise peaceful and small city in the south-eastern China with relatively close foreign’ community is now stained with the tragic of a violent crime among the foreigners. This has never happened in the modern time of Xiamen.

 

The Saturday night at around 10.00pm, two bodies were found slain, lying motionless in a pool of blood at Jianye Lu, outside Marco Polo Hotel, not far from the famous Xiamen cafe outlets, a popular spot for the Xiamen foreign community.

 

Unofficial sources have revealed that a German national by the name of Phillip Martin was accused of murdering another German man and a Venezuelan woman called Jennifer.

 

The suspect was the former boyfriend of the Venezuelan woman and had killed her and her new partner out of jealousy, sources in Germany said.

 

'We're aware of the case. Our Consulate General in Guangzhou is in contact with the Chinese authorities and the victim's family,' a German Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

 

The Venezuelan woman reportedly moved to Xiamen in 2006. She and the murder suspect were both former students of Chinese at Munich University and had separated in 2005, sources in Munich told German Press Agency dpa.

 

Witnesses told Chinese state media they saw the blood-covered victims lying on Jianye Road near Xiamen's Marco Polo Hotel on Saturday night.

 

A man and woman were 'lying on the ground covered in blood' after being stabbed, the Xiamen Wanbao quoted one witness as saying.

 

A manager at a nearby supermarket said she 'heard people screaming' before seeing the three foreigners grappling on the street.

 

The male victim was stabbed first, after which the woman dropped to her knees to beg the attacker to stop, the newspaper and the popular Chinese website Sina.com reported.

 

But the woman was then fatally stabbed, the reports said.

 

The unidentified German suspect was under treatment for 'critical' injuries at Zhongshan Hospital, Xiamen biggest state owned hospital.

 

Other reports said the suspect tried to kill himself by severing major arteries in his legs.

 

A preliminary Chinese police statement said the murder was believed to be linked to a dispute over money.

 

The official Xinhua news agency said the murder was the result of an 'aggravated debt dispute' but gave no details.

 

Police retrieved a dagger and a car from the scene, and were investigating, the agency said.

To xiadasutdent:
[He used to study in Xiada 10 years ago] that's around 6 years ago
[As long as I know, two of them went to Xiamen to study Chinese and cheated on Phillip] He did not study chinese in xiada,he owned a company here. he had been living in xiamen for more than 10 years.As far as i know,he's a simple and very very nice guy if anyone know him-the victim.
how can you say she cheated on Phillip,you dont know the reason why they broke up. so please do not say anything bad to this girl which i know she is a lovely beautiful women with great heart.
if anyone could not overcome their painess and kill whoever he though he hate or dislike, what the world will be. he should be trailed what he deserve. let the judge do their job and please wish them peace in heaven.

The guy on the photo is a guy who made all this mess……
(WOX has noted: This has been adjusted since the posting of this comment. THANK YOU).
His name is Phillip indeed, but the surname is wrong.
He use to study in Xiada 10 years ago.
2 victims are his ex girlfriend and his friend.
As long as I know, two of them went to Xiamen to study Chinese and cheated on Phillip.
His is in the hospital in critical condition and not sure he manages to stay alive.
I know what he has done is terrible, but please don’t judge him too strong: he loved this girl very much and at the time she left him Phillip lost his mother, so he simply couldn’t recover of this double lost.
Everybody who knows him could say that his very nice guy. Until now I simply couldn’t believe that he has done such a thing.
Just remember that demons live inside each of us…..Some people simply too weak to overcome them.
My condolences to the victims and their families.
