Woman Was 'Killed And Cut Up By Man She Met On Tinder'
Police are investigating a grisly murder-suicide after a boxer allegedly killed his girlfriend and dismembered her. He was found hanged a day after authorities discovered his partner's body.
Gary Chu, 28, met Yee-min Huang, 27, on Tinder and had claimed that she lied about her virginity when they met. He reportedly also suspected that she had been cheating on him with other men that she had also apparently met via the dating app.
Chilling CCTV footage captured the final images of the victim as she followed the suspect, Chu up the stairwell to his
flat where she is believed to have been murdered and her body parts were disposed of in seven bin bags.
Chu, an amateur MMA fighter and boxing trainer, was living in New Taipei City's Banqiao District in North Taiwan and was found hanged. Police discovered a suicide note with the words: "She wronged me."
The first indication of any problem was on May 26 when the victim's brother, Francis Huang, appealed to members of the public for help searching for his missing sister, who he said had been out of contact since May 19.
Mr Huang suspected she was being held against her will by her Tinder boyfriend, Chu.
Later the same day, Chu claimed in a Facebook post that he had 'never once hurt her or restricted her freedom', suggesting that it was Yee-min who kept coming back to him when he tried to break up with her.
In the post, Chu also revealed possible motives for the grisly crime he is being accused of, writing: "After we met on Tinder, she lied to me saying she was a virgin. I felt deceived and betrayed when I found out she had been lying and also cheating on me with other men."
Yee-min's brother contacted the police, who searched Chu's home in Banqiao District and found it empty. His relatives also claimed they had not been in contact with him for several days.
The authorities then inspected surveillance cameras in the residential complex, which revealed the last images of Yee-min on May 20.
Since news of the shocking case made headlines in Taiwan, a woman claiming to be Chu's ex-wife has also made public pictures of her injuries, claiming that her former husband had been abusive and also locked her up.
Further investigations are under way.
