Friends of the slain Purdue student say they can hear his death cries through online gaming

Friends of the Purdue University senior who was murdered in his dorm room earlier this week have now released a harrowing story: They could hear him scream just before he died.

At 12:44 a.m. local time Wednesday morning, police said Ji Min “Jimmy” Sha, 22, called 911 to report that his roommate Varun Manish Chheda, 20, was dead. When the authorities arrived McCutcheon Hall On the campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, they found Chheda dead and promptly arrested Sha on suspicion of murder. Preliminary autopsy reports claim that Chheda died from “multiple traumatic injuries from sharp force,” the agency said New York Post.

At the time, Purdue Police described the incident as an “unprovoked and senseless” act of violence. Now, a few days later, friends of the victim have come forward to claim they could hear Chheda screaming through a voice chat on the Discord messaging app/site, presumably as he was being attacked.

Andrew Wu – who attended Park Tudor, a private school in Indianapolis, with Chheda – said he was playing with Chheda when he suddenly heard screams, 13WHHR reports.

Another friend, Arunabh Sinha, related it NBC News that others who had been playing chheda and chatting on discord that night also heard screams but didn’t know what happened at the time. The next day they learned that Chheda had been killed. However, Sinha herself was not among the online gaming participants that evening.

Police have confirmed that Chheda was online and playing the night of his death. Police Chief Lesley Weite said they are still looking for a motive behind the murder. Sha — an international student from South Korea who graduated from high school in Bloomington, Indiana, and was studying cybersecurity at Purdue — wasn’t into online gaming at the time, Weite said.

Sha is currently being held without bail at Tippecanoe County Jail. The New York Post reports that he allegedly mumbled “I love my family” when he was taken into custody.

“This is as tragic an event as we can imagine on our campus,” said Mitch Daniels, president of Purdue University expression published on Wednesday, “and our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by this terrible event.”

“Varun was many things, but above all he was brilliant, humble, ethical and family-oriented,” Sinha wrote in a memorial to his friend. “Varun touched lives at every turn, from Sycamore, Park Tudor and Purdue to every place outside of school that he was involved. He was destined to have a major impact on our world and while we were deprived of that opportunity.” Friends of the slain Purdue student say they can hear his death cries through online gaming
