Honk Kong Police declared that the three people found dead inside the Tuen Mun flat were related. Based on the clues recovered from the crime scene, the authorities determined that Pang Ching-Yu, the couple’s 23-year-old daughter, stabbed her parents to death a knife before

The couple’s bodies were found in separate bedrooms, while Ching-Yu’s body was found in her bedroom. According to the authorities, the woman had a plastic bag over her head, with a small pipe sticking out. The pipe was apparently connected to a helium tank.

Upon analyzing her online activity, the authorities established that Ching-Yu posted a suicide note on the forum.

There, she wrote that her skin condition ruined her chances of having a normal life and blamed her parent for bringing her into this world.

According to Hong Kong Police spokesperson, the woman was struggling for a long time with eczema, an inflammatory condition of the skin, characterized by rashes, irrigation, skin patches, and oozing blisters.

In her farewell letter, the woman also said that her condition worsened after undergoing steroids therapy. She ended the letter by saying that parents giving birth to a child with eczema are far worse than those who are poor.



Carmen Lam Ka-Man, a dermatologist, explained that, in severe cases, patients with this type of skin condition could develop an anxiety disorder or depression. The family is survived by Ching-Yu’s 28-year-old sister.
