Police yesterday detained two suspects for questioning in relation to a letter bomb
explosion in Kaohsiung that severely injured an interior design company owner surnamed Feng (馮), with preliminary investigations indicating that it was likely because of a financial dispute.
A woman surnamed Chung (鍾), 42, and a man surnamed Tai (戴), 62, were detained and later listed as suspects after raids in Pingtung and New Taipei City.
After being transferred to the Kaohsiung District Prosecutors’ Office for questioning, Chung is facing attempted murder and related charges.
A bail court judge granted prosecutors’ their request to detain Chung on restricted communication, while Tai was taken to Kaohsiung for questioning last night.
