A father is facing life in prison for killing his daughter, who was doing poorly in school, according to authorities in China.
The father allegedly killed his daughter, chopped up her body and then tossed her in a public bathroom.
The father of Wenzhou City, was angry with his daughter after he claimed that she was an embarrassment to the family.
Zhang Li, 46, allegedly said that his 12-year-old daughter, Sutain, had let her family down by not being a good daughter.
He initially attempted to cover up the crime, but later reported her missing after his wife demanded they open a missing persons report.
The police spokesperson said that the father acted suspiciously and he was more angry than upset over his missing daughter.
Three days later, a maintenance worker called police when he found a human hand in the public toilet, which is located across the street from the victim’s home.
The police spokesperson said that Li confessed to the murder and blamed the victim. “After questioning, he confessed to the killing and blamed it on his daughter for failing to be a good child and letting the family down,” he said.
