    UPDATE: Police seek information on car tied to missing UI scholar

    The FBI says it has located the car that a missing Chinese scholar studying at the University of Illinois was last seen getting into earlier this month.

    The FBI said in a Tuesday statement that it's received "numerous leads" regarding the black Saturn Astra and won't need any further information on the vehicle. Authorities also said they've developed "several additional leads" in the investigation.

    FBI spokesman Brad Ware declined to give further details.

    FBI locates car related to missing Chinese scholar case

    On Friday night, a day after hundreds marched in Urbana in support of Yingying Zhang, the FBI announced the arrest of Brendt Christensen, 28, of Champaign, on a federal criminal complaint that charges him with Zhang’s June 9 kidnapping.

    Authorities said they think Zhang is no longer alive based on audio FBI agents heard of Christensen, under surveillance Thursday, describing how he kidnapped her and what the bureau described only as “other facts uncovered during the investigation of this matter.”

    FBI spokesman Brad Ware said he couldn’t comment on where Zhang might be, saying: “It’s still an ongoing investigation.”

    QUESTIONS
    for people with experience in court system or Pacer, please?

    When are the Grand Jury proceedings likely to become unsealed in this case?

    Is there any way to obtain the sealed plea negotiations or any sound legal reason to keep them sealed now that sentence has been passed?

    Are either or both of the above available through FOI made by a US citizen?

    I think they did prove future dangerousness.
    No remorse for such a heinous vicious crime means no moral compass- if a small sized prisoner gets in his environment there is no suggestion he would not do it again, the stakes are lower now.

    It has ben proven that his time in prison was used for witness tampering attempts. Asking Michelle to contact TB, trying to contact TB himself..

    He was manipulating the jail informant's wife to buy him phone credit in exchange for buying jail informant diabetic snacks.
    He broke prison rules, excessive books, requesting books on the occult and satanism... he is continuing his ambitions.
    WHO wants their prisons filled with groups of wannabe practitioners of black magic, be no time before human sacrifices become the norm.. if that fails to define future dangerousness I'm not sure what else can.

    He spent years planning this.
    I think he came up with a better idea for disposal.
    Also remember that body mutilation is a very arduous process.
    No evidence has been proven that he did actually decapitate her, much less slice her body subsequently.
    The key has to be his laziness.
    An open manhole would have taken her entire body without need for any of this...
    He was not stupid, only a clown would have used his own waste disposal...

    I agree with you on many of these points. My inclination comes from his laziness and fear. He abducted in a place he knew so well (the UIUC campus and actually very, very near the physics building itself. I'm talking 2 blocks to 2 1/2 blocks away); he raped, beat, and killed in his own house!, thus there is no reason for me to believe he disposed of the body in a place that wasn't extremely well known to him.

    Hum . . you made me think of something. I can't remember where the trashbin for the physics building is located. It doesn't face Green St. but it could be accessible from Goodwin street.

    This man operated in places where he blended in whether as a student or resident, he did not care for his presence to stand out.

    He also indulged himself on his porn file the day he took her, suggesting he had time to spare... think that would have been around 9pm...but double check...
    If the removal of his sIM card from his phone was part of a plan to mislead anybody that would have been searching for her and if it is a thing he siphoned off the petrol rather than use it... it was pre-planned...

    True but with time to spare he could've driven back to the Physics Building Dumpster just as well.

    Yesterday when I visited Becketts office ( no response yet ) I then swung by BC's apt to take videos. The route pretty much runs right thru campus and the abduction area. I drove slowly in both directions past that bus stop. I've commented on this before and you fellow locals will know what I mean here.
    The amount of people milling about this area was staggering. As I drove I was further struck by the number of asian women. I know the original abduction video shows YY standing alone at that stop. But wow...he had to have been incredibly patient for this scenario to unfold. Now that I know how to post videos I will be doing many more so you guys further away can get some idea of just how things are laid out here. I'll get more of JR and Kaufman lake and the surrounding areas.
    I'm going to give another of my opinions here. I asked the other day about the duffle bag time line etc.
    Every single ...ahem... fact..we know about him leaving with the bag comes from Michelles mouth. Think on that..
    I have absolutely NO solid proof..but my gut says she knows waayyy more than she lets on!!

    he could have... but he's have been better served by disposing in a biology dumpster... sorry, couldnt resist...
    Now,assuming, and it's leap to assume anything at all in this case, that his porn fest followed killing and disposal and possibly clean-up, he had very very little time to hack a body, bones, muscles sinews joints require considerable carving, a lot of time...
    He told TB in a text sometime after 5pm that he felt exhausted, did n't suggest he was about to undertake a huge chopping operation, more like he had just finished one..
    Too quick. way too fast.

    Any chance of a walking video or is there any way to upload relevant street scenes from 2 yrs ago, date of disappearance and 2 days after it?

    That's what she testified and it's likely that is also what she told the FBI when she was working with them.
    Either way, if she was considered a suspect or an accessory she would have been charged by now, feds had no good reason to protect her when she turned track to work for defense, cos manipulated by the actual killer since he was incarcerated- future dangerousness..

    Good points. Now, wha is he did not dismember her but just wrapped her somehow and put her in a dumpster.

    I just saw the Loomis (Physics Building) parking lot is accessible from Springfield Ave. That portion of Springfield is mostly parking lots and university buildings. I would imagine at 3 or 4 in the morning would be pretty desolate (no students walking back after partying, no employees, no students). I don't know when the that particular building would've been emptied, but a benefit to dumping there would be that the pool of suspects would be much bigger.

    Here is a picture of the entrance to that parking lot:

    He is a devil and smug now that he's out of the woods regarding DP, but still "in control of Ying Ying." Disgusting to the end, manipulative, evil and controlling.

    That makes more sense, but wont wash with his ambitions to be a serial killer and keep her body for possible necrophiliac acts...
    We're talking a lot about the JR building but were there other old uninhabited buildings, subsequently torn down, or still intact on the streets near his home at the time or now... dry basements or attics.../ any way to find that info, still with the theory between his mome and the gym because that is a known route he used habitually...?

    Well as I said. I have no proof. Just a feeling. Too many of her comments were odd. I think you're giving far more credit to the FBI clown show. This all started because some of Yy's friends were worried. Then they get a vid of her getting into a fairly rare car. Evidence showed only 18 of them were registered in Champaign county. And of those one was a guy who goes to the U of I. And it was almost 6 days before someone noticed the broken hubcap. Even then without TB's help, he mighta got away with it.
    Don't get me wrong...they did in fact do enough to get the conviction...but IMO they handled it all clumsily. I also realize I'm just a layman using 20/20 hindsight but they already had him under 24/7 surveillance. Maybe they coulda let the arrest wait a bit longer. Aarrgh

    I understand that. Yes. Still, it is worth remembering that his aspirations and ego were far removed from the reality of his actions. He viewed himself alongside the most infamous serial killers. In reality, he was a dumb criminal who abducted in broad daylight, in view of cameras, killed in his own d*mn apartment, and was ratted out and caught fairly early on.

    Whatever his ambitions, his execution was lazy, poorly planned, and led right to him.

    I'm not actually giving them much credit at all, their focus was on getting a conviction,not finding her body is what it looks like.
    Realistically, we're back to the beginning and even if it is a thing that michelle is a mastermind, it's not going to help us locate YY's body at this stage of the game.
    Nobody has access to Michelle just like nobody had access to BC.

    If we're gonna focus on a search, we need to be focusing on a search for a retrievable body.
    Theories about dissolved bodies will not help, there's no point searching for liquid, unless it is contained in a vat where contents can be analysed.
    Likewise there is no point in bringing in new suspects because that's another cul-de- sac.
    This was an ego-driven killing, he did it for sport, to amuse himself and possibly to establish himself within the realm of serial killers.
    He wasn't going for the one-off quick vicious killing... she represented stage of bigger plan.
