Man shot in head with nail gun 30 times

Recommended Posts







Police hope the graphic image of Chen Liu's skull will help them track down his killer.

Detectives said the nails, which measure up to 85mm long, were fired into his head by a high-powered nailgun.



His decomposed body was found floating in the Georges River in southern Sydney in November. It had been bound with electrical wire and wrapped in a domestic rug.

Since then, the trail has gone cold and detectives released the x-ray as part of a fresh appeal for information.


Officers believe Mr Liu, 27, was shot and killed before being driven to the river in his own 4WD and dumped. Detective Inspector Mark Newham told local media that post-mortem examination results had showed Mr Liu was shot repeatedly in the head up to 30 times with a high-powered nailgun.



"Similar types of nailguns can fire nails up to 85mm long," Mr Newham said.

Detectives said the nailgun used in the murder was a standard cordless, framing, gas-charged gun, widely available for sale and hire. Mr Liu was believed to be homosexual and lived with his partner in Rockdale. He was reported missing by a male friend two weeks before two children, aged 9 and 14, found his body while on a canoeing trip. He emigrated to Australia from China in 2000.
