He would later tell the Hong Kong police that he had strangled herstuffed her body in a suitcase and dumped it in a thicket of bushes near a subway station in Taipei. It was just a local crime story at first, the details dribbling out in the tabloid press: a selfie of the couple on Facebook, grainy security camera footage, the circumstances of their last argument.
