A horrific crime shook the United Kingdom. It is about the case of a 38-year-old woman, Gemma Mitchell, who brutally murdered her friend Mi Kuen Chong.
“Michelle is a ruthless killer. The motivation was money. The cold facts of the case are shocking,” said the head of the London Metropolitan Police, Jim Eastwood.
Gemma met Mi Kuen Chong in 2020—then called Deborah, a 67-year-old Malaysian woman—at an evangelical congregation called Christian Connection, and this is where the friendship was born.
However, Deborah disappeared in June 2021, and after 16 days without listening to her, a family of tourists found her headless body in a forest in Devon, London. A few days later the head was found nearby.
lawsuit came after a year
Last Friday, 28 October, the long-awaited trial took place more than a year after the events where Michel was sentenced to life in the Central Criminal Court for England and Wales.
Amidst the shocking details of the case, it was revealed that the woman killed her friend, beheaded her and kept it in a suitcase in her house for two weeks.
“When the body was found, the decomposition was in such an advanced state that Mitchell feared that Deborah’s body would be discovered,” the police chief said.
“We may never know whether it forced him to move his body and why he chose Salcombe in Devon,” the man said.
On the other hand, it was said that Michel is a man who is not short of money, has property in Australia and one in London which he wanted to rebuild.
Chong reportedly offered her friend $230,000 to help repair their home, but after withdrawing the offer, she disappeared.
Among the evidence presented in the case are security camera records where the woman is carrying a blue suitcase.
The police have also found a will in the apartment of the killer with the false signature of the victim.
