Hongkong : the Hello Kitty murder

The Hello Kitty Murder in Hong Kong refers to the case of a night club hostess who was kidnapped and tortured in an apartment in Tsim Sha Tsui in 1999. She eventually died over a month later, either by drug overdose or at the hands of the abductors. The woman was decapitated and her head was inserted into a Hello Kitty doll, hence the name of the case

A 23-year-old night club hostess by the name of Fan Man-yee was kidnapped by three men: 34-year-old Chan Man-lok , 27-year-old Leung Shing-cho , and 21-year-old Leung Wai-lun . They took her to an apartment at Granville Road, Tsim Sha Tsui where they imprisoned her. They beat and tortured her daily over a debt dispute.

After a month of imprisonment and torture, she was killed, dismembered and her head was stuffed into a Hello Kitty doll. They discarded most of the other body parts. Only the woman's skull, one tooth and some internal organs were recovered.

The killing was exposed after the 14-year old girlfriend of one of the three perpetrators reported having continual dreams of being haunted by Fan's ghost

The murder quickly became a sensational story in the media. The three men were convicted of manslaughter because the remains could not identify exactly how she died. They remain incarcerated.

Justice Peter Nguyen, who sentenced the trio, said, "Never in Hong Kong in recent years has a court heard of such cruelty, depravity, callousness, brutality, violence and viciousness." The trio was convicted of manslaughter and unlawful imprisonment by a jury of the Court of First Instance after a six-week trial. They revealed it to be one of the most gruesome cases in the territory

The publicity around the case resulted in the production and release of movies that told the story. Both Human Pork Chop and There is a Secret in my Soup were released in 2001
