The arrest of the main suspect, Tsang Cheung-yan, 26, and two other men came after the fourth suspect – Tsang’s 18-year-old girlfriend, named Ho – reported to Taiwan police on Sunday as she feared for her safety.
The case came to light in March when police found the decomposing body of Cheung Man-li, 28, in a cement-filled wooden box in a converted residential unit of an industrial building in Tsuen Wan.
Cheung, who was jobless, had been reported missing earlier last month.
He had been demanding repayment of a HK$1 million debt, which he borrowed from his family for his friends.
Tsang was living in the unit.
Taiwanese police said Ho, whose nickname is “Little Grass,” went to a police station accompanied by a male friend in Taipei on Sunday evening to report a missing passport and her visa expiring. Police questioning led to her revealing her identity and the case being uncovered. [FULL STORY]
