Taipei, April 30 (CNA) Police in Taichung said a woman from China has confessed to killing her Taiwanese boyfriend and then dismembering and burning his body after his sudden disappearance gained media attention.

An elaborate murder case shocked Taiwan, as a 46-year-old masseuse admitted to killing her 36-year-old boyfriend, before chopping his body into nine pieces.

The suspect, whose family name is Huang Jingwen, immigrated from China and runs a massage parlor in Taiwan’s central city, Taichung. The victim, Lan Kun-yu, owns a lathe factory that has a gross revenue USD$150,000 a month.

The pair began dating 8 years ago when Lan was a factory worker. Three years ago, Huang invested USD$33,000 to sponsor Lan’s bank loan, so he could open his own lathe factory. Lan promised to give her 20% of the profit when the factory started making money. However, Huang found out a year later the factory was already in the green, but her boyfriend never gave her a cent. In addition, Huang reportedly was pregnant with Lan’s child, but Lan allegedly forced her to get an abortion. Huang later said it was then that she began planning the elaborate murder of her lover.

She saved up prescription sleeping pills over two years, and secretly learned how to drive so that she could use a car to dispose of Lan’s body after killing him.

On April 27th, Lan came home drunk. Huang put ten ground up sleeping pills into Lan’s black tea, and wrapped the mattress with black plastic bags before covering it with sheets to avoid blood stains. After Lan lost consciousness, Huang took out a meat cleaver and chopped off his head with two hacks. She then dragged the body to the bathroom to let the blood drain, before cutting it into 9 pieces.

Huang then mixed the body parts with her clothes in 11 separate bags, pretending she had a fight with Lan and was moving out. She drove her boyfriend’s body parts off in a rental car, burned them, and hid the knife behind the bathroom mirror of a motel.

Huang would have gotten away with the almost perfect murder, but while the police were questioning her about Lan’s disappearance, they brought up her abortion from two years ago and she became emotional. She admitted to murdering Lan, citing the abortion as her motive to kill him. Police are investigating whether she had an accomplice.
