章莹颖案嫌犯首次出庭拒不认罪,案情细节曝光让人细思恐极……
作者:21ST   来源:21mr007娱乐原创    日期: 2017-07-04
这些天来,在美失踪留学生章莹颖的下落,一直牵动着国内外无数人的心(回顾案情请戳)。 然而,经过20多天来美国警方和美国联邦调查局 (FBI)的调查以及各界人士的全力搜寻,却传来了我们最不愿意听到的消息:在调查过程中,执法人员认为,章莹颖已经遇害。 (During the investigation of this matter, law enforcement agents believe that Ms. Zhang is no longer alive)。 就在几天前,FBI 已经锁定了涉嫌绑架章莹颖的嫌疑人 —— 布伦特·克里斯滕森(Brendt Christensen),此人曾是章莹颖所在的伊利诺伊大学物理系的一名助教。 FBI认为,当天,正是他开着那辆黑色土星轿车,载走了章莹颖。 目前的最新进展是,FBI 已经逮捕了克里斯滕森,并于当地时间7月3日上午10点举行了首次法庭聆讯 。 当天,众多华人到场参加聆讯,在法院外排起了长队。 据伊利诺伊州当地媒体the News-gazette 报道,首次法庭聆讯十分简短,只持续了9分钟。 在法庭上,身穿囚衣、脚戴镣铐的嫌犯克里斯滕森除了表明了解自己应有的权利外,全程一言不发,拒不认罪。法官Eric Long 拒绝了其保释要求。但辩方律师要求,将在两天后(7月5日)再次举行庭审。届时,法庭将会决定嫌犯是否取保候审。 U.S. Magistrate Judge Eric Long has ordered the man accused of kidnapping Yingying Zhang to be held without bond until his next court hearing, two days from now. Brendt Christensen, 28, of Champaign, made his first appearance in a packed courtroom at the federal courthouse in Urbana this morning.  Wearing a prison jumpsuit and shackled at the ankles, Christensen did not speak during a hearing that lasted nine minutes, other than to acknowledge that he understood his rights. Long asked Christensen's attorney, Evan Bruno of the Urbana-based Bruno Law Firm, whether he was ready to take a stand on bail. When Bruno asked for a few days, Long set a detention hearing for 3 p.m. Wednesday. At that time, bond will be determined. 目前,章莹颖依然未被找到,而嫌犯也拒绝透露章莹颖的下落,整个案件依然扑朔迷离。 但近日FBI公开的一份刑事起诉书 (criminal complaint)中,则披露了章莹颖案的更多细节。
嫌犯车辆被过度清洁
尽管在案发当时的监控录像中,无法辨别司机身份,但这辆轿车的车型,却成为了破解此案最关键的线索。 FBI的起诉书中提到,此款黑色土星牌阿斯特拉轿车 (Saturn Astras) 在伊利诺斯州香槟市注册在案的,只有18辆。 而其中一辆的车主,便是克里斯滕森。FBI在排查中发现,克里斯滕森所有的这辆轿车有一扇天窗,并且副驾驶位置的轮毂罩处有破损 —— 这些都与监控中出现的涉事车辆相一致。 From the surveillance video, the driver's identity was hard to tell. But he drove an unusual car. And there were only 18 four-door Saturn Astras registered in Champaign County, Illinois, the FBI agent wrote. One of those Astras was registered to Christensen. And when investigators visited Christensen's apartment complex, they discovered his car had a sunroof and a cracked front passenger hubcap -- just like the car in the surveillance footage. 而调查人员在对克里斯滕森的车进行搜查后发现,该车副驾驶一侧的车门被过度清洗过。FBI调查员Manganaro认为,此举或许是一种企图隐藏或者销毁证据的举动。 Authorities got a warrant to search Christensen's vehicle and noticed the front passenger door of Christensen's car "appeared to have been cleaned to a more diligent extent than the other vehicle doors," the criminal complaint says. "I believe that this type of action may be indicative of an attempt to conceal or destroy evidence," Manganaro wrote.
嫌犯前后说辞不一
FBI在锁定嫌疑车辆后,曾在6月12日6月15日对克里斯滕森进行过两次约谈。 在第一次的约谈中,克里斯滕森表示自己并不太记得案发时的下午两三点在做些什么。“他稍后表示,自己在6月9日那天一直都呆在公寓里,不是在睡觉就是在玩电子游戏。” When authorities interviewed Christensen on June 12, he initially said he couldn't remember where he was between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. the day of the kidnapping, the FBI agent wrote. "He later advised, however, he must have been either sleeping or he was playing video games at his residence all day on June 9," Manganaro wrote. 然而,到了6月15日第二次约谈的时候,他的说法却完全不一样了。   克里斯滕森向警方承认,6月9日当天,他开着车在伊利诺斯大学校园附近,看见一个背着背包的亚裔女性站在街角,看起来十分不安。 他开车上前询问,得知该名女性有约已经迟到了,于是他便表示愿意开车送她一程。但后来在开车途中,他拐错了弯,那名女性开始惊恐起来,于是他便在离女子上车几个街区之外的地方放下了她。 But when authorities interviewed Christensen again on June 15, "Christensen admitted to driving around the UI campus when he observed an Asian female with a backpack standing at a corner appearing distressed," the FBI agent wrote. "Christensen claimed that he drove up to the Asian female, who relayed she was late to an appointment. Christensen stated that he offered the Asian female a ride." According to the criminal complaint, Christensen said he may have made a wrong turn, and the woman panicked. At that point, he said, he let his passenger out of the car a few blocks away from where he had picked her up.
嫌犯曾用手机搜索绑架教程
警方在对克里斯滕森进行第二次问话的同时,还取走了他的手机进行调查。 调查结果令人感到毛骨悚然。 据FBI的调查显示,克里斯滕森曾于4月19日打开了一个名为FetLife的网站↓↓↓   他访问了该网站中一个名为“绑架 101”(Abduction 101)的论坛,里面有一些关于“完美绑架幻想”(Perfect abduction fantasy) 以及“策划一场绑架”等帖子。 Investigators searched Christensen's phone and discovered a visit to the website FetLife -- where the user visited a forum called "Abduction 101," Manganaro wrote. Threads on that forum included "Perfect abduction fantasy" and "planning a kidnapping," the complaint said.
嫌犯在监控录音中承认绑架
调查人员在取得许可后,对克里斯滕森采取了连续的监控行动。而在监控中获得的一系列证据却和克里斯滕森先前在约谈中所说并不相符。 FBI的调查显示,在执法人员的监视过程中,克里斯滕森在一段录音里提到了如何绑架了章莹颖,这与他之前的口供不符。 “克里斯滕森表示,他将章莹颖带回了自己的公寓,并违背了她的意愿将她囚禁在公寓里,”FBI的犯罪诉讼书中写道,但除此之外,FBI对于录音的状况,并没有更多的披露。 Investigators obtained search warrants and started "continuous surveillance" on Christensen. And authorities say the ensuing evidence contradicts Christensen's claim that he had let Zhang get out of his car a few blocks away from where she was picked up. "Christensen was captured on audio recording while under law enforcement surveillance explaining how he kidnapped Y.Z.," or Yingying Zhang, the complaint said. "Christensen stated that he brought Y.Z. back to his apartment, and otherwise held her in his apartment against her will," the complaint said. It did not elaborate on the circumstances of the recorded remarks.
克里斯滕森究竟是谁?
在布伦特·克里斯滕森(Brendt Christensen) 的领英主页上,资料显示他是和章莹颖同校的博士生。 而据伊利诺伊大学教授证实,克里斯滕森直到今年的五月,都还是该校物理系的研究生及助教。认识他的人都对这件事感到震惊。
"Everybody is shocked by this," said Lance Cooper, an associate head for graduate studies in the department. "There were no flags, no discipline issues with him, no problem with his teaching, no problems with his coursework." “所有人都对此感到震惊,”该系研究生院的副院长兰斯·库珀表示。 “没有任何迹象,他自己也没有什么行为规范的不当之处,教学和功课方面都没问题。”
David Meldgin, a teaching assistant in the physics department, said he had an office next door to Christensen for two years, though they spoke only a few times. "He was a quiet person in meetings, but he always helped students who needed help." Meldgin said. "I'm really surprised." 该校物理系助教David Meldgi的办公室就在克里斯滕森的隔壁,两年中两人仅仅说过几次话。 “开会时他是个安静的人,但他总是会去帮助需要帮助的学生。”Meldgin说到。“我真的很震惊。”
而这么一个看似“优秀的助教”,似乎有着不为人知的另一面。 克里斯滕森脸书帐号的封面是一个男生牵着一个女生走在深渊般的螺旋式楼梯上的情景,这是日本动漫作家伊藤润二的恐怖漫画《漩涡》里的一个画面。 过去几年,他喜欢一个来自瑞典通巴的名叫Amon Amarth的乐队,该乐队的风格是死亡金属和重金属。他点赞了《美国杀人魔》一书,这本书讲述的是一个拥有双重性格的华尔街骄子疯狂杀人的故事。 而更令人毛骨悚然的是,在上周四举行的为章莹颖同学祈福的集会中,嫌犯竟然也出现在现场,而这一幕也被CNN的记者记录了下来↓↓↓ The crowd of demonstrators who rallied behind Yingying Zhang's family included hundreds of students, professors and concerned strangers. It also included the man suspected of kidnapping her, officials say. A photo taken by CNN's Kaylee Hartung at Thursday's rally shows Brendt Christensen, the man who would later be identified as the suspect, in the upper right corner, the University of Illinois and campus police said.
下来将会发生些什么?
在7月5日的再次庭审之后,该案件的初次听证会将会于当地时间的7月14日上午10点举行。 美国检察官办公室的发言人表示,如果嫌犯的绑架罪成立,克里斯滕森将面临终身监禁的判决。而如果该绑架案导致了人员死亡,判决将更为严厉 —— 克里斯滕森将被处以强制性的无期徒刑或是死刑。 If convicted of the federal kidnapping charge, Christensen faces up to life in prison, according to Sharon Paul, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office. However, in federal kidnapping cases where a death occurs, the penalty is heavier -- either mandatory life or the death penalty, prosecutors said. Under federal law, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides which penalty federal prosecutors pursue. 此前,有分析认为,起诉方是联邦法院而不是伊利诺伊州法院,是因为伊利诺伊州没有死刑,以联邦和联邦法院的名义起诉,可以以绑架致死的罪名将罪犯判处死刑。因此,检方是在寻求对罪犯施以最严酷的刑罚。 虽然美国警方已经做出了最坏的情况判断,但我们依然盼望奇迹出现,莹颖同学能够平安归来。 同时,关注案件的人们也强烈希望罪犯能被绳之以法,严惩不贷,还莹颖和她的家人朋友一个公道。
