Family and friends of slain Hong Kong model pay final respects as investigation continues

Police search for the remains of model Abby Choi's body in Hong Kong on February 28, 2023.

Hong Kong (CNN)Friends and relatives of Hong Kong model Abby Choi on Tuesday paid their final respects at the scene where police say they found what are believed to be the socialite's dismembered body parts, public broadcaster RTHK reported.

Choi's mother and widower lit incense and brought Taoist paper offerings used in traditional funeral rites outside the village house in the city's northern outskirts, RTHK said.
Choi's ex-husband Alex Kwong, 28, his brother Anthony, 31, and their father, Kwong Kau, 65, are charged with her murder. Alex Kwong's mother Jenny Li, 63, is charged with perverting the course of justice, RTHK reported Monday.
    All four were denied bail, the Kowloon City Magistrates' Court ruled Monday, according to RTHK. They are yet to enter a plea.
      On Sunday, investigators identified a skull, several ribs and hair, believed to be Choi's remains, in a large stainless steel soup pot, police said. Other body parts, including Choi's torso and hands, remain missing. The police investigation remains ongoing.
