‘Broken-hearted’ DH found hanged to death in employer’s Yuen Long home

The victim wrote about feeling depressed before she was found dead
Police have confirmed the death of a 32-year-old Filipina domestic helper who was found hanging by the neck with a clothesline in her employer’s flat in Yuen Long on Feb 2.

Her friends say the victim, who was a lesbian, was depressed because of her recent break-up with her girlfriend.

A police spokeswoman said today, Feb. 11, that the maid was found by her employer in her flat at 11 Shep Pat Heung Road.
Police who responded to the employer’s call found the victim dead when they arrived. There was no suicide note and no suspicious circumstances, the spokeswoman said, adding that the case was classified as “person found dead on arrival.”

The officer said the cause of death will be determined by investigators. But she said police had received information that the victim had been bothered by family problems.
Officers at the Consulate said the remains of the victim would be autopsied this week.

They also said the employer reported the apparent suicide to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration and the Consulate’s assistance to nationals section on Feb 3. The victim’s relatives were immediately notified.

Assistant Labor Attaché Tony Villafuerte said the employer was so traumatized and upset that the tragedy had taken place in her house that she refused to identify the victim’s remains.
But she did submit the required documents so the repatriation process could begin.

One of the victim’s friends eventually identified the body at the morgue last week, allowing the autopsy to go ahead.

Before her death, the victim made several Facebook posts where she admitted being broken-hearted and hit out at what she called the “kaplastikan” (hypocrisy) and “fake love” of her friends.

Tunghayan ang isa na namang kwentong Dream Love.

She then posted several farewell messages on Facebook, the latest two within minutes of each other. She talked about “giving up” and posting what she called her “last photos.”

She added a 20-second video clip of herself looking troubled and in tears.

She made her last post at 3:38pm on Feb. 1, where she wrote about struggling with depression because of her breakup with her girlfriend, and complained of people who laughed at her predicament.
