THE 25-year-old Malaysian woman who was found dismembered in Taipei last week could have been raped before being killed, according to Taiwanese police, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The post-mortem report stated that her genitals were not found among the body parts discovered in two boxes at the foot of Keelung Mountain on Sunday.

The deceased Deng Yong En is believed to have been killed by her flatmate Lin Guo Ping, a 45-year-old man with a criminal record for robbery and burglary.

Lin was found dead in an apartment in an apparent suicide on Sunday.

The Sin Chew Daily report, quoting the Taiwanese newspaper Liberty Times, said Deng’s mother was missing from the funeral home where Deng’s body is currently held, on Tuesday. Only her two aunts were seen sobbing and hugging each other.

The police said they had yet to find the murder weapon and did not rule out that Deng could have been sexually assaulted before being killed.

Deng, originally from Kampar, Perak, had been working in Taiwan.

Her cousin reported to the police that she had gone missing on Jan 6.

CCTV footage revealed that Lin had carried two large boxes out of the flat and was seen loading them onto a rental car.

According to a report by another Taiwanese daily United Daily News, Deng was said to have rejected Lin’s advances, angering him.

The report also cited sources as saying that more than T$10,000 (RM1,360) was missing from Deng’s account after she died.

> Hong Kong singer-actor Pakho Chau ended up in a hospital bed right after bagging two prestigious awards at the TVB Anniversary Awards ceremony on Sunday, Oriental Daily reported.

The 35-year-old won the Most Popular Male Character award for his role in the TV drama Wonder Women as well as the Most Popular Drama Theme Song for singing the show’s opening theme.

However, right after his acceptance speech, Chau was seen holding on to his assistants for support and left immediately for the hospital when the night ended.

It was later revealed that he was feeling feverish throughout the night but did not want to miss the event.

On Monday, he posted a photo of himself lying on a hospital bed and spotting an IV drip on his left arm.

“I’m sorry to have worried everyone. I was in a terrible condition yesterday, and I honestly didn’t even have the energy to stand up.

“However, I was thrilled to get two prominent awards – I was really excited and nervous.

“I was also touched to see my friends win as well – I’m very happy for them,” he wrote on Instagram.

Chau dedicated the awards to the entire cast and staff of Wonder Women.
