Adam Cheng, who is currently grieving the loss of his daughter, continues to struggle with his emotions. Speaking to the media, Koon Jing-wah shared, “We are currently handling the situation, and Adam Cheng’s emotional state has not yet stabilised. As far as we know, Angelina’s birth mother is alive and residing in Vancouver. Yesterday, some relatives were able to make contact with her through a phone call, and we have provided the contact details to the church. Due to legal matters in the United States concerning Angelina’s property, including her house and car, her birth mother is her rightful representative, and we hope that she will personally handle these matters. As for other funeral arrangements, if she grants permission, we will do our best to assist.”
Koon Jing-wah further revealed that they have managed to establish contact with Angelina’s birth mother and expressed their hope for her involvement in handling the aftermath.
