The tragic death of Hong Kong model and influencer Abby Choi has shocked and saddened many. Choi, 28, was reported missing last week and her remains were later found in a rental unit in Tai Po, Hong Kong. Her ex-husband and in-laws have been arrested and charged in connection with her death.
The police investigation found that Choi and her ex-husband, Alex Kwong, allegedly had financial disputes. This information led to the arrest of Alex, his brother, Anthony, and their parents, father Kwong Kau, and mother Jenny Li. Alex, his brother, and father were charged with Choi’s murder, while his mother was charged with perverting the course of justice.
The body parts found in the rental unit included Choi’s legs, credit card, and ID. However, not all of Choi’s body parts had been discovered. The police later found a skull and several ribs in a cooking pot in the same Tai Po residence where other body parts had been previously discovered. Forensics experts identified a hole in the skull that was caused by a hard object, which is believed to be the cause of her death.
The case has been adjourned through May 8 to allow for further investigation into Choi’s murder. The accused have yet to enter a plea, and they have been placed in custody without bail.
Choi had more than 100,000 followers on Instagram and was a fashion icon and media personality. Before her death, she had most recently been on the cover of Monaco fashion magazine L’Officiel Monaco. For the cover story, the outlet described her as “a fashion icon and media personality who has taken the world by storm with her impeccable sense of style and her unbridled passion for fashion.”
Choi shared the cover on her own Instagram, which was her last post before her death. She expressed her gratitude for the recognition and support she had received and stated that her “journey as a style icon continues.”
The tragic and brutal nature of Choi’s death has shocked and saddened many people. It is a reminder that domestic violence and financial disputes can escalate to extreme and violent ends. It is important to seek help if you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence or financial difficulties. There are resources available to support those who are experiencing these challenges, and seeking help can be a crucial step towards preventing tragic outcomes like Choi’s.
