I know that Hong Kong is a safe place to stay but this recent killing of a British woman in Hong Kong, it will make tourists feel insecure in visiting Hong Kong. Let’s hope Hong Kong authorities would be able to capture the suspect. Here’s the details of the murder of a British woman, a Salvation Army worker, in the harbor of Hong Kong.
Police in Hong Kong have launched a murder inquiry after the body of a British woman was discovered in a flat.
She has been named as 64-year-old Janet Gilson, a Salvation Army worker from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
A 29-year-old man was arrested at the city’s main ferry harbour and is being questioned by detectives.
Ms Gilson – found at her niece’s property on Lamma Island – reportedly suffered head injuries but police could not confirm if she had died from them.
She had arrived in Hong Kong on 6 March and was last seen on Tuesday in the village of Tai Yuen Village.
Her body was found in the flat, three days after she was reported missing by her niece. – BBC
