From the Dominion:
NY 1-TV reported that 23-year-old Yu Yao from China was raped and killed in a Queens alley last month. She was a catechumen preparing for baptism at St. George’s, Flushing. The Rev. Dr. Paul Xie presided at her funeral. NY 1 said, “The sound of a mother’s pain filled” the service. “You didn’t have to understand the mostly Mandarin ceremony to understand her sorrow. The daughter moved to the U.S. from China to follow her dream and study to be a lawyer.” Fr. Xie (pronounced “shay”) said Ms. Yu first came to the church on Easter Sunday, invited there by a relative who was baptized at St. George’s four years ago.
