Re: Hello Kitty Murder, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong (1999)
After cutting Fan's corpse in multiple pieces, the men decided to cook her remains to stop her body from decomposing and emitting the unique odor of rotting human flesh. They placed her body parts in a pot of boiling water on the stove, sometimes cooking her remains next to food they were preparing for dinner.
On at least one occasion, they used the same kitchen utensils to stir their meals as they did the pot containing her severed head. After they boiled Fan's remains, they disposed of most of her body parts by throwing them out with their household garbage, although they did keep some pieces of her corpse.
After Ah Fong went to the Hong Kong police, officials searched the apartment. While the men had moved out of the flat, a number of belongings were left behind, including a large Hello Kitty mermaid doll.
When they took the stuffed toy apart, they discovered Fan's severed head had been sewn inside the Hello Kitty doll. They also found a single tooth, which they were later able to connect to Fan, and on top of the canopy of a store located below the flat, officers recovered a bag containing her partially decomposed internal organs. With Ah Fong's account of the crimes and the physical evidence recovered from the apartment, Hong Kong officer arrested Chan, Shing-cho, and Wai-Lun in connection with Fan's death.
In addition to hitting and kicking Fan, the men abused and tortured her by forcing her to consume human waste. Not only did the gang members urinate into her mouth, they also forced her to eat Chan's teenage girlfriend's feces.
Chan, Shing-cho, Wai-lun, and Ah Fong, tortured Fan by melting straws and dripping the scalding hot liquid plastic onto the soles of her feet. Ah Fong admitted to pouring chili oil onto the burns made by the melted plastic, causing Fan to experience excruciating pain.
They also bound the young mother's wrists together with electrical wire and suspended her from the ceiling. Then, they beat Fan all over her body with metal pipes and table legs until her head was covered in blood and her fingers were broken.
Following Fan's death, Ah Fong started have nightmares about the sadistic torture she and the three gang members had inflicted upon the young mother. The 13-year-old also became convinced Fan's restless spirit was haunting her, and she felt the only way she could free herself from her ghost was to confess to the police. In May 1999, Ah Fong went to a Hong Kong police station and told the authorities about Fan's month of suffering and her resulting death.
Initially, officials found the teenager's account so disturbing and unbelievable, they nearly dismissed Ah Fong's story as a bizarre fantasy. However, they decided to search the flat, which the three men had recently vacated, and they discovered a number of pieces of disturbing evidence that corroborated the teenager's horrifying allegations.
Fan stole the wallet when she hung around with Chan. When he realized what she had done, he demanded she pay him back with interest. And she did - she reimbursed Chan for the $4,000 she'd stolen from his wallet, along with an extra $10,000 in interest.
However, Chan wasn't satisfied. He told the young nightclub hostess that she had to give him an additional $16,000 interest. When 23-year-old Fan was unable to come up with the money - which was four times what she'd originally stolen from Chan - the gang member initiated their plan.
Ah Fong received immunity from prosecution in exchange for her testimony against her boyfriend and his two accomplices. While all three men denied killing Fan, during their six-week trial, they admitted to preventing the young mother from receiving a lawful burial, a criminal charge in Hong Kong.
Chan and Wai-lun both pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, a charge Shing-cho denied, and throughout their trial the three men accused one another of torturing Fan while minimizing their own roles in the horrific abuse she endured over the last month of her life.
The defense also tried to convince the jury Fan may have died as a result of a drug overdose. While Fan had been a user of methamphetamines prior to becoming pregnant with her son, her husband testified she had stopped using drugs years earlier when she found out she was pregnant.
Because of the way in which the three men disposed of Fan's body, medical authorities were unable to determine exactly how the young mother died, so a jury refused to find them guilty of murder. Instead, the trio was convicted of manslaughter in December 2000, and they were sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after just 20 years.
After the widespread publicity Fan's torture and death received in Hong Kong, no one wanted to buy or rent the apartment where she endured horrific abuse. Consequently, the flat sat empty for years, and eventually people decided they didn't want to live in any of the other apartments in the building on Granville Road either.
After purchasing the vacant apartment building, which many people believed to be haunted by the spirit of Fan, an investor demolished the building in 2012.
