Taipei, The belongings of a 21-year-old girl from Hong Kong who police believe was murdered by her boyfriend during a trip to Taiwan in February were recently claimed by her father, according to Taiwan Shilin District Prosecutors Office (TSDPO) Thursday.
A source with information on the matter said the victim's father Monday also collected the remains of the unborn baby his daughter was carrying at the time of her death, though that had not been confirmed by the authorities as of press time.
The boyfriend, surnamed Chan (?), and victim surnamed Poon (?) came to Taiwan in February and checked into the Purple Garden Hotel in Taipei's Datong District.
However, it is reported that the couple were involved in a heated argument which police believe could have led to the murder, after which Chan is believed to have dumped her body near Zhuwei MRT Station.
Taipei Police found the body on March 13 after Chan had left the country. The case is currently being investigated by the TSDPO.
An autopsy revealed the remains of the three-month-old fetus.
Taiwan's prosecutors have already asked the authorities in Hong Kong to provide a sample of Chan's DNA to confirm whether he was the father, but they have not yet replied.
