In memory of May Mengyao Zhou

        念 May Mengyao Zhou

May Mengyao Zhou, a Stanford University doctoral student, went missing after leaving her residence at Stanford’s graduate-student housing complex at 10:30 AM on Saturday, January 20, 2007, the 13th Day of Winter Quarter, to run some errands. 30 minutes before leaving her room, May transferred money from her savings account to her checking account to pay bills online. Her body was found in the trunk of her car at Santa Rosa Junior College at about 7:00 AM on Thursday, January 25, 2007.

On May 10, 2007, a second autopsy, requested by the family, was performed on May's body by a pathologist with over 40 years of experience. Multiple sites of blunt force trauma were  discovered on the body, such as about the head and extremities. The findings, including the cause of death, indicated that May's case was a homicide rather than a suicide.

When multiple sites of trauma were discovered on May’s body, the family immediately called the police in Santa Rosa, CA, to ask them to come down to San Diego and view the evidence. In the week of August 13, 2007, the family asked the police again to view May’s remains. They declined both times.
