TAIPEI, Taiwan — A woman who reportedly died taking a selfie in Taoyuan may have
been conspiring with her family to cash in on her insurance policies, according to a probe.
This April 24, a 44-year-old woman surnamed Yeh fell off Provincial Highway No. 7 at the 7.5-kilometer mark, tumbling off a steep slope to her death.
Following a monthslong investigation, prosecutors said the woman was suspected of killing herself so that her family could benefit from her insurance policies.
In the half year before Yeh’s deadly fall, she had purchased multiple accident insurance policies, with which her husband, son and aunt claimed NT$34 million after her death.
