Chilling update in case of dismembered model Abby Choi as cops reveal twisted reason ex-husband & in-laws are suspects
COPS investigating the brutal murder and dismemberment of a young model have given a chilling update on the possible motive for the sickening crime.
The remains of Abby Choi, 28, were found in a house in Hong Kong being rented by her former father-in-law.
Police have investigated the model’s ex-husband and three of her former in-laws following the gruesome discovery on Friday.
Cops are understood to suspect Abby Choi’s ex-father-in-law masterminded the horror killing after parts of her body were left in a refrigerator at a rented home.
Now, police have given a possible motive for the murder of the up-and-coming model who had graced a magazine cover in Monaco only this month.
Authorities believe Abby had financial disputes with her ex-husband and his family over a property costing 100 million Hong Kong dollars (£10.7m), which she had planned to sell.
Chung said: “We believe the victim and her ex-husband’s family had many financial disputes involving huge sums.
“Someone was dissatisfied with how the victim handled her assets, which became a motive to kill.”
Her partial remains were found in a house set up as a butchery site, police said.
After they broke into a house being rented by her ex-father-in-law on Friday afternoon, cops discovered two legs in the refrigerator, as well as the victim’s ID card, credit cards, and other belongings, Police Superintendant Alan Chung said.
Human tissue was discovered in pots of soup – but police have yet to find the victim’s head, torso, and hands.
The house in the village of Lung Mei – a beachside village around a half-hour drive from the city centre – was equipped with an electric saw and a meat grinder that had been used to mince human flesh, Chung said.
Abby’s ex-husband, a 28-year-old man surnamed Kwong, was arrested for murder Saturday afternoon as he was attempting to flee the city by boat, according to cops.
The man’s father, mother and elder brother had been arrested on the same charge a day earlier.
Choi was first reported missing on Wednesday.
She was allegedly last seen by her ex-husband’s brother, who also worked as her chauffeur.
Police said the family had earlier lied to mislead investigators.
The village house had been recently rented and was unfurnished – suggesting it was set up to dispose of Abby’s body, Chung added.
Chung added: “Police also have found that the flat was arranged by cold-blooded killers meticulously.
“Tools that are used to dismember human bodies were found in the flat, including meat grinders, chainsaws, long raincoats, gloves, and masks.”
Around a hundred police officers were combing a cemetery on Saturday, suspected to be the dumping ground for some of Abbyi’s remains.
The news has been greeted with horror in Hong Kong.
Only last week, Abby shared a picture of her magazine cover with her almost 90,000 Instagram followers.
She wrote: “From Hong Kong to the cover of L’Official Monaco, my journey as a style icon continues.
“Grateful for this recognition and the continued support along the way.”
Earlier this month, she shared a video of herself at the Dior Fashion Show in Paris.
