Gruesome details of the butchering of Hong Kong model Abby Choi
The former in-laws of a Hong Kong model are under arrest after her body parts were found in a refrigerator days after she disappeared, police said Saturday.
After breaking into a village house rented by the father of the victim’s ex-husband Friday afternoon, officers discovered two legs belonging to a woman in the refrigerator and the victim’s identity card, credit cards, and other items in the house, superintendent Alan Chung Nga-lun said.
“Police also have found that the flat was arranged by cold-blooded killers meticulously,” he said. “Tools that are used to dismember human bodies were found in the flat, including meat grinders, chainsaws, long raincoats, gloves, and masks.”
Human tissues were found in pots of soup, Chung said. Police could not locate the victim’s head, torso, or hands at the scene.

Chung said authorities believe the 28-year-old woman had financial disputes involving tens of millions of Hong Kong dollars with her ex-husband and his family and that “some people” were unhappy with how Choi handled her financial assets.
Police are searching for her ex-husband but have arrested his parents and brother, according to Chung. They will face murder charges.
Chung said the house was rented by her ex-husband’s father only a few weeks ago. Chung said the woman was 28 years old and a model named “Choi.” He did not disclose her full identity, but local media identified her as model Abby Choi.
