A post to blogger Simon Ng?s journal just before he and his sister were killed in their New York apartment led police to his murderer. In his Xanga journal, Ng wrote:
At 3 some guy ringed the bell. I went down and recognized it was my sister?s former boyfriend. He told me he wants to get his fishing poles back. I told him to wait downstair while I get them for him. While I was searching them, he is already in the house. He is still here right now, smoking, walking all around the house with his shoes on which btw I just washed the floor 2 days ago! Hopefully he will leave soon.
Investigators got Ng?s sister?s ex-boyfriend, Jin Lin, to confess to the murder after confronting him with the blog entry.
