Hong Kong (CNN) Hong Kong police said on Saturday they had arrested three people following the discovery of model and influencer Abby Choi’s dismembered body.
Parts of the 28-year-old’s body, along with a meat slicer, power saw and some clothing were found Friday afternoon at a rental home in Hong Kong’s northern Tai Po district, police said in a press release.
Police say three people have been arrested and are being held for questioning.
As a model, Choi had enjoyed international acclaim and was photographed last month at the Elie Saab Spring Summer 2023 Haute Couture show in Paris, France. She also recently appeared as the digital cover model for luxury magazine L’Officiel Monaco and attended Paris Fashion Week this year.
Choi, who was also known as a social media influencer, has nearly 100,000 followers on her Instagram account, which features photos of her posing with various luxury brands in locations from London to Paris to Shanghai and aboard yachts in Hong Kong. In her biography, she writes that she “embraces every moment in life.”
Police received a missing person report for Choi on Wednesday. She had not been seen since the day before.
The investigation, including the cause of death, is continuing, police said.
