13-year-old arrested for killing infant, having sex with corpse

In China, a 13-year-old boy has been taken into custody for allegedly killing a three-year-old infant and then having sex with the corpse. The postmortem report also confirmed that she was first killed and then raped, police sources said.
In an extremely bizarre case of murder and necrophilia, a minor boy in Haizhu district of South China’s Guangzhou province reportedly killed an infant by drowning her in a basin full of water and then sexually assaulted the corpse.
According to the report, this heinous crime took place on 19 of this month and police arrested the accused two days after the incident. Police reportedly said: “We have arrested the boy and are interrogating him to determine the motive of the murder.”
Police did not disclose the name of the accused as he is a minor.
The report says that the boy noticed the girl playing near her apartment building on his way home from school. As there was no one else in his house at that time, the boy grabbed the girl and took her to his house. It is believed that the boy tied her hands and feet before killing her.
Police reportedly said that the boy has confessed to the crime and also said that he has committed this alone without any accomplice.
Infant’s father reportedly said: "My daughter had gone out to play at about 5 pm on May 19, but when she didn't return till dark, we got worried. We went out to search for her, and at about 8 pm we noticed police barricades near an apartment building nearby.”
According to Chinese law a minor below 14 cannot be charged with criminal offense and for this reason this case would be quite challenging for the local legal authorities, the report said.
A local media reportedly quoted psychologists as saying that they believe the pornographic content available on the internet might have motivated the boy to commit this crime.
Notably, the accused boy lives with his mother whereas the father stays in another city, the report added.
