Subject: Canadian model murdered near Shanghai

What will the Canadian government do? "" The body of a 22 year old model, Diana Gabrielle O'Brien, from Salt Spring, British Columbia, has been found on Chongming Island, where she was on an overnight modeling assignment. We haven't found any report of it yet in the Chinese press, but numerous Canadian media are already on the story. Apparently, O'Brien had not been happy in Shanghai with the modeling assignments she was getting here, and had already been telling friends that she was planning to go home just one month into her three-month contract. Grieving family and friends of O'Brien have had no news from the Shanghai police or Foreign Affairs of how O'Brien died and whether she was murdered, but they have been informed that an autopsy will be conducted soon. O'Brien's boyfriend, Joel Berry, who has known her for 10 years (and who was intending to marry her), says she was not into drugs or alcohol or anything, so he couldn't help but "think it was anything except foul play".

RIP. I'm surprised anyone is going to China for modeling work. I suspect Chinese pay scales are way lower and East Europeans and Central Asians are able and willing to do the same work for a lot less money.
