Police are still investigating the alleged suicide in Tsiu Keng village, Sheung Shui

A 36-year-old Filipino domestic worker was found hanging inside a hut in Sheung Shui, New Territories Monday morning, police said.

The man, with initials R. F., reportedly lived alone in the hut in Tsiu Keng  village owned by his employer.

According to the police, they received a call at 10:25 am yesterday from a male colleague of the deceased who said the victim had hanged himself with a rope inside the hut.

Call now!

Officers who responded to the call took R.F. down. They found no suicide note, so a police spokesperson said they are carrying out an investigation into the cause of death.

An autopsy will also be performed.

A Filipina domestic worker who calls the victim “kuya” said the death came as a surprise because R.F. just had his second dose of the BioNTech vaccine on Saturday and reported feeling weak. Thus, it was improbable that he found the strength to hang himself.

Nanghihina na at masama na ang pakiramdam,” said the Filipina helper, who also said the hut was just one of several houses owned by R.F.’s employer. “Tapos di na siya ma contact.”


(He was feeling so weak and unwell then. He couldn’t be contacted anymore after that).

The Filipina said she wished someone had taken a video footage of the victim while he was hanging to help with the investigation.


O kaya picture pagbukas pa lang ng pintuan,” she said (Or they could have at least taken a picture as soon as they opened the door to the hut).

R.F. who was married and hailed from Pangasinan, was said to have worked in Hong Kong for only three years. He worked in his employer’s leisure farm planted with various fruits and vegetables.

His family reportedly finds it hard to accept that R.F. would have killed himself, so they are looking forward to the result of the police investigation, and the autopsy that will be carried out both in Hong Kong and the Philippines.
