The Filipina was found hanging by a rope inside a flat in Greenville Gardens

A 41-year-old Filipina domestic helper who was found hanging by a nylon rope inside her employer’s flat in Wanchai had killed herself because of personal problems, the police told The SUN today, Aug 31.

The body of the victim, L. Tambong, was found hanging inside her room in a unit at block 15 of Greenville Gardens, Shiu Fai Terrace, on the morning of Aug 19,  said a police spokeswoman.


She added a 75-year-old local man had called the police at 8:08am that day to report the incident. Fire service rescuers who rushed to the address brought her down and certified the victim dead at the scene. 

The case has been classified as suicide although no suicide note was found, the officer said. She added investigators gathered the woman had been depressed due to “difficulties in life.”

An autopsy has been conducted on the victim’s remains.

Welfare Officer Virsie Tamayao of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration said the victim was married but could not give further details.


Tamayao said that she could not contact the victim’s family because each time she and her staff dialed the number provided in the worker’s records, all they got was a recorded reply saying the number dialed was out of the coverage area.

“The agent came to our office only last Aug 26, Thursday, and advised us to tell the employer to visit the ATN for shipment requirements and procedures. Walang details of beneficiary sa record po,” Tamayao said.

She did not say if OWWA has managed to reach the victim's employers and whether arrangements have been made for sending the remains back to the Philippines.

Any information that could link authorities to the deceased's family in the Philippines should be relayed directly to OWWA at their office on the 29th floor of United Centre building in Admiralty.
