The former in-laws of Chinese model Abby Choi, 28, have been arrested after parts of her dismembered body were found in a Hong Kong residence, police said on Saturday.
Hong Kong police found Choi’s legs in a refrigerator inside a house in Lung Mei village in Tai Po district on Friday. The home is believed to have been rented by the victim’s former father-in-law just a few weeks ago.
Police also found tools used to dismember human bodies, including meat grinders and chainsaws, as well as the victim’s identification, credit cards and other belongings in the home. The search for more Choi members, including the head and torso, continues.
A total of four people, including Choi’s former in-laws and brothers-in-law, were arrested in connection with the killing, police said. Police were also searching for Choi’s ex-husband and announced an additional arrest of a man in connection with the crime on Saturday night.
It is unclear at this time if the man Hong Kong police arrested is Choi’s ex-husband.
Authorities believe Choi had financial disputes with her ex-husband and his family over tens of millions of Hong Kong dollars.
