Murdered Chinese teen had passed all her GCSE mother reveals as she says she will never forgive
Following the guilty verdict at the trial of Chun Xu for the murder of Wenjing Lin and the attempted murder of her stepfather, Yongquan Jiang, Wenjing’s mum bravely shared these words and paid tribute to her daughter and to the local community who have been so supportive since her tragic loss:
“My beautiful daughter has gone, and I can never forgive you. I have lost my beloved daughter, my everything.
She cared for my husband and I, helping us to communicate with English speakers.
My husband was a very strong and fit young man who had never felt tired before this vicious brutal attack. He has severe mental and physical injuries from the brutal attack and now he even struggles to work, often suffering nightmares – seeing Wenjing lying on the floor by the counter in the reception area on that horrible day.
The treatment he must receive from the hospital will go on for a long time and his scars will remain forever.
My daughter’s school and friends miss her so much, I know they are suffering from the pain and the loss of their best friend. They will never recover.
Before that awful day, she was a happy girl who loved spending time with her friends and was enjoying school. We visited the school to speak with them – my daughter had passed all her GCSEs with A* but she will never know the results that she worked so hard for. I am so proud of her achievements. She loved school so much – her teachers called her the model student.
I am still not able to comprehend why you would do this to her. I cry every day and watch videos of her to feel close to her and hear her voice.
Our lives have been turned upside down. I cannot imagine my life without her – she was my only child and you have broken our hearts forever.
I have to begin counselling to help me but nothing will ever take away the pain that you caused.
I am so thankful and touched all support given to us by the school, the local community, our friends, the crown prosecution service, and the police have provided to us. We are so relieved that justice has been done and that he is being punished for what he did.
I hope there will never be another innocent victim like Wenjing.”
