Chilling CCTV shows a man dragging a suitcase that allegedly contained his murdered girlfriend’s body just hours after she was last seen.
Poon Hiu-wing, 20, was found dead in a field just a few months after she wrote online: “He said I’m his first and his last girlfriend.”
Detectives claim she was murdered by her boyfriend at a hotel and then stuffed into a suitcase.
CCTV footage from the hotel in Taipei shows the couple, from Hong Kong, arriving together in the early hours of February 17.
Later that morning, her boyfriend, Chan Tung-kai, 19, is seen leaving alone as he pulls a pink suitcase with a small zip-up bag on top of it.
Poon was reported missing by her family in Hong Kong on March 5 and her body was found in Taiwan’s capital Taipei eight days later.
Detectives said Chan suffocated his girlfriend to death using a pillow inside their hotel room, and flew back to Hong Kong alone on the day of the alleged murder.
Hong Kong authorities tracked him down and arrested him on suspicion of theft on March 13 after they allegedly found Poon’s bank card on him.
It was claimed that he revealed information that was eventually passed on to Taipei police, who found the woman’s body in a field near Taipei Metro’s Zhuwei Station.
Investigations have revealed that the couple travelled to Taiwan for their Valentine’s Day trip starting February 8.
CCTV showed them checking into the Purple Garden Hotel just past midnight on February 17.
Security footage also shows Chan pushing the suitcase through a crowded metro station moments before allegedly disposing of his girlfriend’s corpse.
Poon, who also went by her English name Amber, is being remembered on social media, where her final public post dated November 15 read: “He said I’m his first and his last girlfriend.”
Taiwanese authorities have requested Chan be extradited back to the Taipei to face charges, but the case is proving to be a legal puzzle for police on both sides as no extradition agreement currently exists between Hong Kong and the self-ruled island.
It is understood that a special, provisional law may need to be created for the purposes of this case. – MirrorOnline
