The neighbour's body was found by his landlady in Zhejiang province when she visited his room to collect the rent.

Police said they detected evidence of strangulation, and Liao's body in the next room. There also were two notes and some drugs found in that room.

The man was thought to have killed himself over family conflicts and killed his neighbour because he was afraid of being alone after death, his notes suggested.
