Roughly 100 police officers wearing protective gear and armed with shovels and excavators went to the North East New Territories Landfill in Ta Kwu Ling to search for more evidence from her murder along with her missing hands and torso.
The landfill appears to be roughly 15 minutes from the home where she was found, which was roughly a 30-minute drive from mainland China.

“The suspects threw away several bags of important evidence in the morning of Feb. 22,” Superintendent Alan Chung told reporters. “They may be some human body parts or they could be the clothes and the phone of the victim, or even the weapons.”
Nothing substantial has reportedly been found yet.

None of the defendants have been granted bail and the case has been adjourned until May.
Another woman who was arrested for allegedly assisting the suspects has been released on bail pending further investigation. She is believed to have been having an affair with Choi’s former father-in-law according to authorities.
