Police search for killers after horrific nailgun execution

THIS horrific X-ray of a man executed by being shot 34 times with a nailgun was released yesterday by Australian police hunting his killers.

Chen Liu’s decomposed body was found in a Sydney river last November but police have yet to say if they have identified any suspects.

New South Wales police released the X-ray to highlight the brutality of the crime.

“In 36 years, I’ve never seen a murder of this nature,” superintendent Geoff Beresford said. “It’s a particularly brutal and vicious murder and hence the reason we are seeking information from the public.”

The 34 nails were found during a postmortem examination and were located mainly in his skull.

They were fired from an 85mm nail gun at close range. Police have not found the weapon.

They are investigating associates of Liu, who also went by the name Anthony Liu, but said they have no evidence that he was linked to a criminal group.

Liu entered Australia on a student visa from China in early 2000 and moved to Sydney, where he was married for a short time.
