Young White Man with Kidnapping Fetish Charged in Case of Chinese Exchange Student Missing and Feared Dead



The cloud of suspicion hanging over Brendt Christensen is the outcome of one of the most unusual disappearance cases in recent American history.

New York Post

A man was charged Friday with kidnapping a visiting University of Illinois scholar from China who authorities believe to be dead after she disappeared three weeks ago. A federal criminal complaint alleges the suspect’s phone was used to visit an online forum in April called “Abduction 101.”

Yingying Zhang, the 26-year-old daughter of a working-class factory driver from China, disappeared on June 9, just weeks after arriving at the Urbana-Champaign campus in central Illinois where was doing research in agricultural sciences and was expected to begin work on her doctorate in the fall. Friends and family described her as extremely bright, hardworking, caring and devoted to her parents.

Some 5,600 Chinese students are enrolled at the university — more than at any other college in the nation — and Zhang’s disappearance fed anxieties of families of Chinese students studying in the U.S.

Federal authorities say Brendt Christensen, who turned 28 on Friday, of Champaign, Illinois, is charged in a criminal complaint with abducting Zhang shortly after she stepped off a bus near the university campus. Video shows her getting into the front seat of a black Saturn Astra.

According to the 10-page affidavit filed in federal court by FBI Special Agent Anthony Manganaro, Christensen was under surveillance Thursday when agents overheard him explaining he kidnapped Zhang. Authorities say based on that and other facts uncovered during the investigation, agents believe Zhang is no longer alive.

Asked Friday night if authorities had any leads on where Zhang’s body might be located, the spokesman for the FBI Springfield office, Bradley Ware, declined comment.

Christensen will remain in custody pending his initial federal court appearance, which is set for Monday in Urbana.

Heavy offers more details about Christensen.

Both Christensen and Zhang were graduate-level scholars.

According to his LinkedIn page, Christensen is a PhD Student Researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and he has worked there for 3 years and 7 months. That’s the same university where Zhang was a visiting scholar.

Christensen wrote on LinkedIn: “I am a PhD candidate in experimental condensed matter physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Currently, I fabricate nanoscale-level devices and perform electrical measurements on them in order to discover new things about mesoscopic physics. These measurements are done with a variety of devices; most notably probe stations and cryogenic systems. Along the way, I utilize an assortment of programs and skills, such as Python, LabVIEW, electron-beam lithography, atomic force microscopy, and much more.”

Zhang was an international scholar who focused her research in the areas of photosynthesis and crop productivity. She had only arrived at the University of Illinois in April 2017. According to CNN, Zhang “had a year-long position at the university’s department of nature resources and environmental sciences.”

Heavy also reports that he was married to a woman named Michelle, who may or may not be the same woman in this photo.

Heavy also notes that the affadavit charging Christensen contains some very disturbing information about his porn habits.

The affidavit alleges that Christensen’s phone accessed the abduction threads on a site called FetLife. FetLife’s home page reads, “FetLife is the Social Network for the BDSM, Fetish & Kinky Community. Like Facebook, but run by kinksters like you and me. We think it is more fun that way. Don’t you?”

Authorities claim his mobile phone was used to access a thread entitled “Abduction 101.”

The thread has more than 3,000 members. The other thread authorities accuse Christensen of visiting is entitled “planning a kidnapping” and contains a post from someone else that reads, “I’m a lucky sub. I actually have a friend who is going to kidnap me. She also has 3 helpers. The catch is we’ve never done this before. Suggestions thoughts and ideas for the actual abduction are most welcome. We need help lol.”

In the last few hours, both Heavy and the Daily Mail are reporting that Christensen attended a vigil (or rally) for Zhang with a woman, apparently his wife. Comments at the DM are of the “weirdo” variety and have him convicted already.

Here’s a rally photo of the man believed to be Christensen.

Christensen should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

  1. Do not get fetishes. Why are there so many chinks attending our universities? China has plenty of universities. All yellow people must leave the U.S. too. They are everywhere now.

    • There are a lot more Chinks than Jews. In the long run, the Chinks will become the world masters and the Jews will have to do shovel work for the first time in 2500 years. So Chink rule will not be all bad. Taxes will be very low. Welfare will also be very low. If you do not have a loving family, tough luck pal and single mothers also. Workers will do well and lazy bludging bastards will do very badly. This will be Australia this century and I predicted it 20 years ago. Canada and the USA will also be dominated by Chinks in the future, not so soon as Australia. Try and stop them. The Jews are enabling the Chink invasion.
      PS Chinks hate niggers so that might also turn out quite well. Nig nogs who do not work will starve.

      • Nope. Won’t happen.

        Ching Chongs will become cogs just as the Indians. Their first generation will make $ and then stagnate as is the rule in the Kwa. The game is set

      • Most white Kwans have figured out that uni is a waste of $. Apprenticeships are the way to go

  2. Is this story for real or a ruse? Some speculate when making up fake stories about evil white people they like to use the names that include Christ…So every time I see this it gives me pause?!?!

    • The security tape of him picking her up will probably be enough to get him convicted. Normally the cops wait until a body is found before making an arrest. Because the victim is from China, they jumped the gun. The school wants those yuan coming in.

  3. It seems to me that real kidnappers would never access a kidnapping site using their own computer. This guy was a PhD student and very brainy according to his own boastful resume. He could have used any computer at the University anonymously, or gone to a library, or used an Internet cafe if they still exist, or maybe used someone elses computer while they were at lunch – making them a suspect and not him. Or bought a smartphone with cash and accessed the internet sites – but never when at his own home or place of work. He could have hidden his ISP address etc, this is cheap to do for those that like to be furtive.

    My guess is that of the 3000 chumps using that site – none of them are bona fide kidnappers or killers, but all of them are suspects and maybe some will be convicted of kidnapping crimes they did not do. “Near enough is good enough” might be the police policy. With no body this guy should never be convicted. Maybe people that like violent movies and video games should be charged with unsolved murder cases. That would be good. Charge the Hollywood Producers also with incitement to murder – and rape, and kidnap, and cannibalism also.

  4. Why the uproar about a chinese girl. Hundreds of Whites go missing all the time…no one but Whites seem to care. I don’t think this guy did it, but what do I know? Chinese are like blacks, if they weren’t here there probably wouldn’t be a problem.

    • There are so many unsolved crimes relating to white women, but it looks like the police gave this one priority to keep the Chinese from blowing up. He certainly isn’t confessing if he did it. That’s going to be a problem for police and the DA, I think.
