Prosecutors in Tainan, Taiwan are now requesting court's permission to detain three former executives of the real estate development company that built the Weiguan Jinlong apartment complex.

The building collapsed in a magnitude 6.4 earthquake three days ago in southern Taiwan. The quake killed 41 people and more than 500 were injured. Of the 41 dead, 39 died in the Weiguan Jinlong apartment complex.

Photos of the ruined building has surfaced showing 'tin cans' in the walls of the building.

It appears they were used as construction fillers in beams.
