Peeping Tom Gets Comeuppance

A man in Shenzen China who scaled the side of a building for a better look at a dead woman's naked body fell to his own death.

When a prostitute leapt to her death from a high rise apartment building, a throng of onlookers jostled for ring side seats. The Hong Kong edition of the China Daily said a man who climbed up the wall of the building for a better view, lost his grip and also died.

His death sparked superstition and rumours that the dead woman's ghost had lured the voyeur to his death so he would be her companion in the afterlife.

The female victim, meanwhile, had apparently been taken hostage by two men who called for a ransom. Police were yesterday questioning two male suspects.
