Perth, Again

Another Buddhist connection to Perth, this time the Australian one and this time a tragic one rather than a controversial one. Buu Lieu, a 48 year old Vietnamese Buddhist monk was battered to death in Bibra Lake Regional Park on Sunday January the 10th. Bibra Lake is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia.

Buu Lieu, also known as Paul, was found with serious injuries, lying near his blue Kia station wagon, he died in Charles Gardiner Hospital on the 25th.

Mr Lieu was living with his mother and sister after moving to Perth from Vietnam as a child.  He was last seen by his family at midnight on Saturday, January 9 and was found critically injured at 5am beside his vehicle.
