Virginia Landlord Killed by Tenant Then Hidden in Woods for Weeks
Virginia State News by Evan Green
A missing Virginia woman's body has been found after she vanished last month while grocery shopping and one of her tenants has been charged with her murder. Emily Lu was last at an Aldi store in Woodbridge.
Upon recovery of the vehicle, her purchases were still inside the car.
Emily Lu did not show up for work and her concerned coworkers reported missing. Lu's body was discovered in a forest near her house in Lorton almost six weeks after she went missing.
25-year-old Brian George Sayrs Jr. has been charged with second-degree murder and felony concealment of a body. He rented an apartment from Ms. Lu.
Virginia police suspected someone Lu knew was responsible for her disappearance. Chief Kevin Davis of Fairfax County Police acknowledged that Sayrs was the subject of this investigation.
A struggle was seen inside Lu's home, which led investigators to believe foul play had been involved.
Sayrs is being held without bail in jail.
