6th January 2021 – (Hong Kong) A 34-year-old woman with a 5-month-old baby jumped off the top of Parc Palais, No. 18, Wylie Road, King’s Park in Ho Man Tin at around 4.50pm today. She was found lying on the platform with severe injuries.
Police and paramedics rushed to the scene and certified both dead. According to sources, the woman who fell from the building was a businesswoman Lili Law who had a U.S. citizenship. She was the only daughter of the chairman of a real estate company in Chengdu, but she gave up taking care of the family business and started her own business in Hong Kong. It is reported that Law also suffered from emotional problems in the past.
On 3rd July, she splashed hot water on a man during a hotpot session with some friends in a mansion in Sheung Shui.
Law and her baby daughter lived in a 5,000-square-foot duplex unit. After Law gave birth to her daughter, she was suspected of suffering from postpartum depression. It is understood that Law was naked when she jumped off the building.
Since the police did not find his identity documents at the beginning and the security guards on site failed to recognise the identity of the deceased, the police conducted repeated investigations before grasping the identity of the deceased.
The case is now being further investigated. Some experts pointed out that postpartum depression is a type of depression, which can be divided into three levels: mild, moderate and severe. 10% of mothers will suffer from postpartum depression of varying degrees. If a woman herself is a patient with depression, or is under environmental, financial, and family pressure before giving birth, her chance of suffering from postpartum depression is higher than the average person.
Post-mortem examinations will be conducted later to ascertain the cause of deaths of the deceased. Active investigation by the District Crime Squad of Yau Tsim District is underway.
Police classified the case as murder and suicide.
