Ex-husband of the model who was brutally dismembered and stuffed in the fridge, was reportedly ‘trying to abscond’ in the lead up to his arrest.
Abby Choi’s former partner was allegedly planning to board a speed boat today ahead of being arrested in connection to the death of a 28-year-old woman.
The suspect was arrested while carrying £60,000 in cash and a number of luxury watches at the Tung Chung Development Pier, it was reported.
Superintendent Alan Chung of Kowloon West Police force told the South China Morning Post: ‘We believe he was trying to abscond from Hong Kong by sea when he was arrested.’
Both his parents and elder brother have also been arrested following the discovery of human tissue left in soup pots at a Lung Mei Tsuen home.

An underwater search was conducted today in an effort to find her remaining body parts in the catchment area surrounding Tseung Kwan O cemetery.
Possibility of even further arrests has not been ruled out by the force it is also understood.
Superintendent Alan Chung Nga-Iun added: ‘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 model did not pick up a child as planned.
During her career, Abby Choi had posed for a number of magazines including Elle and L’Officiel.
‘Someone was dissatisfied with how the victim handled her assets, which became a motive to kill,’ Chung Nga-Iun said.
On Friday, police searched the 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.
