Michael Breidenbach, head of the 107th Precinct detective squad, said the entry turned Lin's alibi upside down.<br><br>"That puts him in the apartment," said Breidenbach, adding that investigators got Lin to confess after confronting him with the entry.<br><br>Lin told cops he wanted to rob her to help him buy a plane ticket back to Hong Kong, law enforcement sources said.<br><br>Lin - who was picked up at his Flushing home on Friday - told cops that he set upon Simon Ng after failing to find any money in Sharon's bedroom.<br><br>Lin tied Simon Ng up and stabbed him repeatedly in the chest with a butcher knife, cops said.<br><br>It was not clear how much time passed before Sharon Ng came home at 9:30 p.m. Cops said Lin pounced on her as she entered the home and stabbed her repeatedly in the neck.<br><br>In the minutes after the attack, Sharon Ng's current boyfriend called and she managed to tell him to get help.<br><br>She died about an hour later at New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens.<br><br>A cousin of the slain siblings - their own parents returned to Hong Kong six months ago - remained in shock over the killings yesterday.<br><br>"It's unbelievable that it was one single guy!" said Sam Cheung, 24. "He took two lives. How can one person do this?"<br><br>Simon's last entry<br><br>I don't know why but this is chilling to me.<br><br>
