Murder accused claims prostitute insulted him

Murder accused claims prostitute insulted him

A 45-year-old unemployed Hong Kong man confessed that he killed a sex worker who insulted him while they were having sex in the bathroom of a hotel, Macau police said.
However, the police said they are still probing the real motive behind the killing, adding that the suspect had allegedly planned the murder.

Police yesterday identified the man as Ho, a n unemployed Hong Kong resident of Chinese nationality who had been sleeping in parks and abandoned shopping malls since arriving in Macau in March last year.

Ho was arrested for aggravated murder and theft.

The victim was a Macau resident and was found in the bathtub of a room at the Pension Florida Hotel on Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro Sunday, March 12, police said.

It is understood a hotel staff member found the victim’s body when she failed to check out of the hotel.

A 15-centimeter-long wound was found on the victim’s head believed to have been caused by repeated attacks with a hard object, resulting in severe internal bleeding of the skull and death.

Blood was splashed on the wall at the scene, but no murder weapon was found, police said, adding that they suspect the crime scene had been cleaned up.

After investigation, the police found that the victim had rented the hotel room since mid-February this year to provide sexual services.

When checking security video footage, police spotted a man entering the hotel around 9pm Friday and exiting the hotel room about 30 minutes later, holding a suitcase and a bag containing a pillow, police said.

He was also seen entering and exiting nine different buildings, apparently to hide evidence and to avoid arrest.

Ho admitted he had entered Macau with a legal permit in March last year, but was homeless, and it is believed that he contacted the victim via an online group chat, police said.

Police later found the suspect used a computer at an activity center near the city’s exterior port Sunday evening.

He was brought back to the crime scene for forensic crime reconstruction and to Rua de Manuel de Arriaga for investigation, where he is suspected to have disposed a mobile phone and a suitcase.

In detention, the suspect denied the crime was premeditated.

Police added that the suspect did not conduct the crime “on impulse,” as he was mentally stable enough to take the victim’s phone and attempt to evade the police.
