In central China this week, authorities are investigating how exactly a young woman spent the last six years locked inside an abandoned building on her parents” property. Allegedly, 24-year-old Zhang Qi was intentionally locked up by her parents.
The reason? They didn”t like her boyfriend, and she refused to break up with him.
These images of the terrible conditions inside the building were taken by another villager who then alerted regional police.
Chow Jen, the villager who took the photos, also leaked them online because local police refused to interfere. He says Qi”s parents are “powerful people,” but he doesn”t care.

So far, there has been no comment from the local police regarding the fate of Zhang Qi. Am I the only one who thinks that her parents may have overreacted just a little bit to her choice of boyfriend?
