The family of Chinese immigrant Jun Ren, missing for 17 years, believes
she was murdered in NSW, police say.
Detectives have also revealed that Australian authorities were not told of
the woman's disappearance for two years after she vanished in 1991, placing them
on the back foot from the start of the investigation.
Officers reworking the cold case spent yesterday and Wednesday searching a
four-hectare property in Kemps Creek in Sydney's south-west which Mrs Ren rented
with her husband following her arrival in Australia in February 1990.
The missing woman, who was last seen leaving the semi-rural property on
Herbert Street by her husband in May 1991, was finally reported missing by a
close female friend who lives in China.
"She wasn't reported missing until 1993. Although she went missing in
1991, police weren't privy to that," Detective Senior Sergeant Patrick Keating
He said certain objects were seized at the property on Wednesday.
He would not reveal what the items were or what had led police to search
the land after 17 years.
"I don't want to jeopardise the investigation," he said. "What I may tell
you in regard to the search is that a number of items were found. They could be
significant but at this stage we are not prepared to state whether they are or
He said the case was kick-started again after one of his detectives at
Liverpool police, Graham Hibbs, "ran a pair of fresh eyes over it".
Detective Senior Constable Hibbs said: "The case was never closed, we have
basically started a fresh investigation. We have just reviewed a lot of old
statements and fresh information."
He said police had this month spoken to Mrs Ren's husband, who no longer
lives at the property but is still in NSW.
"We have been in contact with [Mrs Ren's] family in China," he said.
"They believe that she is deceased and that she met with foul play. We
were also able to speak to the person who originally reported her missing, she's
Mrs Ren was aged in her mid-30s when she went missing. Anyone with

Killing a few in Australia was
easy, accused told friend
THIS is the man police fear has got away with murder.
36-year-old Jun Ren went missing from her Kemps Creek home in May 1991, her
husband, Bi Kui, told her friend she had "gone overseas with a rich man".
But when Helen Liu insisted he report his wife as missing to the
police, he allegedly raped her, telling Ms Liu Australian police were
"stupid" and that ''in a big country like this killing a few people is
easy'', an inquest into Ms Ren's death heard yesterday.
The inquest was told that police believe Mr Kui, now 55, either killed
Ms Ren himself or has intimate knowledge of how she died. But because her
body has never been found, the Deputy State Coroner, Carl Milovanovich, was
unable to make a finding into the cause or manner of Ms Ren's death or refer
the case to the state's unsolved homicide team.
"The circumstances of the relationship of the deceased with her
husband at the time and the circumstances in which she disappeared certainly
makes the circumstances suspicious but without a body I cannot say
definitely," he concluded.
The officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Senior Constable
Graham Hibbs, told the inquest: "It is my belief that Jun Ren Ö was murdered
by Bi Kui or persons known to Bi Kui some time in May 1991."
The court had heard that Ms Ren had had an abortion in the weeks
leading up to her disappearance, telling a male friend she "hated" her
husband and did not want to have his child.
She had also attempted to leave Mr Kui, and stayed at Ms Liu's house
for two days. But Mr Kui collected his wife and she was not seen again.
Ms Ren was reported missing two years after her disappearance when Ms
Liu discovered that Mr Kui had never told police, the court heard. Police
intelligence alleges that Mr Kui is involved in Asian organised crime, the
It heard Ms Ren had told friends that before he moved to Sydney, her
husband had defrauded $US100,000from a Chinese company.
When the Herald visited Mr Kui at the restaurant he owns in
Ashfield, a man who translated the conversation said Mr Kui ''could not
remember much at all'' about that period in his life.
