Police are currently investigating the murder and dismemberment of a young woman and the suicide of her boyfriend after he was discovered, hanged, with a suicide note telling police he had killed his girlfriend. It appears that the motive for the murder was that she cheated on him and lied on her Tinder bio about being a virgin.
Gary Chu, aged 28, worked as an amateur MMA fighter and boxing trainer while living in New Taipei City in Taiwan. Up until recently he was seeing Yee-min Huang, aged 27, who he met via the popular dating app Tinder. However, police know that Chu and Huang were having difficulties in their relationship.
This Saturday Huang’s brother appealed to the public via a Facebook post to help look for his sister who he had not seen since May 19th. In the same post he accused Chu of holding Huang hostage, but Chu hit back over the social media platform, saying that Huang was desperate for his attention and that he had tried to break it off but she hadn’t let him.
In reality, Huang had likely been killed long before her brother posted to Facebook. Police revealed that CCTV cameras close to Chu’s apartment recorded the last ever footage of Huang as she entered his home on the 20th May. Two days later Chu was recorded by the same CCTV cameras leaving his apartment carrying 7 seven bin bags. He threw the seven bags in the flower garden of his apartment complex.
Huang’s brother eventually phoned the police who searched Chu’s flat and confirmed that they found the seven bags Chu was seen carrying. They later clarified that they had unearthed Huang’s body which had been dismembered and stuffed into the garbage bags. Chu’s body was later found hanged from a tree nearby, with a suicide note reading,
“She wronged me.”
Interestingly, Chu may have revealed the full motive behind the murder during his Facebook argument with Huang’s brother when he wrote,
“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.” Although police have not yet officially stated what the motive or method of murder was.
