Headless body of missing model, 28, is found dismembered in fridge in house of horrors in Hong Kong that had been converted into ‘butchers shop’ as police arrest her ex-husband and father-in-law
- Body of Abby Choi was found in pots of soup on Friday at a home in Hong Kong
- Her former father-in-law, ex-husband and his brother have been arrested
Former family members of a missing model have reportedly been arrested after her body was brutally dismembered and left in soup pots.
The Hong Kong village of Lung Mei Tsuen village was a butcher shop on Friday as the legs of Abby Choi were found in a fridge.
Police arrested the parents and elder brother of Ms Choi’s ex-husband on the horrific discovery in her former father-in-law’s rented home.
Following an extensive search, Ms Choi’s former partner, 31, was also then arrested yesterday, according to the South China Morning Post.
Police told the publication that the attack was ‘well-planned’ and ‘premeditated’, adding that there were plenty of ‘smokescreens’ to distract authorities from the truth.

Superintendent Alan Chung Nga-Iun told the publication: ‘We are still looking for the head, the torso and hands, which we believed were disposed of.’
A missing persons investigation first took off on Tuesday after the up-and-coming model did not pick up a child as planned.
At the time, the 28-year-old was fighting with her ex-husband and his family over 100 million Hong Kong dollars (£10.7million), authorities explained.
It was on Friday that police searched the father-in-law’s home that was allegedly set up with equipment such as a meat grinder, choppers, a hammer, and an electric saw.
Two soup pots were also found containing human tissue, reports suggest.
The property was then taped off with reportedly 20 police officers coming in and out to investigate the scene.
An underwater search is now to be conducted in an effort to find the remaining parts of Ms Choi’s body this afternoon, according to The Strait Times.
Police also confirmed today that ‘post-mortem examinations will be conducted later to ascertain the cause of death’ of a 28-year-old woman.
MailOnline have reached out to Hong Kong Police Force to request confirmation that this is Ms Choi.
