Tinder boyfriend murders 27-year-old woman, scatters her remains in a flower bed before killing himself
The MMA fighter was found hanging from a tree near the Ministry of Health and Welfare Hospital in Xinzhuang District
28-year-old Gary Chu killed Yee-min Huang before going on to kill himself. They had met each other on the famous social dating app Tinder.
According to detectives, Chu is believed to have killed Huang after finding out she was not a virgin as she had claimed on her Tinder profile, reported Mirror UK.
At the time of the killing, 27-year-old Huang was reportedly cheating on him, suspect police officers.
CCTV footage that surfaced online allegedly captured the moment the duo went into his flat where he is believed to have murdered her and then dumped her body in garbage bags after dismembering her.
Authorities said that the 28-year-old committed suicide just days after killing his girlfriend. Chu was a boxer and MMA fighter living in New Taipei City's Banqiao District in North Taiwan.
Investigative authorities discovered a suicide note written by Chu when they found his hanged body which read "she wronged me."
Family members of the deceased female searched for the missing Huang while Chu launched a tirade on Facebook moments before killing himself.
He claimed he “never once hurt her or restricted her freedom” and said, “after we met on Tinder, she lied to me saying she was a virgin”.
In his rant, the boxer claimed that, even though he tried hard to break-up with her, she kept coming back to him.
Revealing possible motives for the killing, Chu said: "I felt deceived and betrayed when I found out she had been lying and also cheating on me with other men.”
He even wrote that she pleaded with him to give her another chance to show him that she had changed. Ultimately, Chu said that "in the end" she hadn't changed, as she continued to chat with other men online, "including foreigners."
According to him, they had lied to her parents that they had been together for six months, whereas the two had actually only known each other for two months after meeting on Tinder.
His apartment was searched as soon as Huang's brother contacted law enforcement to report his missing sister, and was found to be empty.
The 28-year-old's relatives also claimed they had not been in contact with him for a long time.
The authorities then inspected surveillance cameras in the residential complex, which revealed the last images of the victim.
On May 20, CCTV cameras captured Yee-min's final movements as she followed the suspect up the stairwell to his flat.
During the early hours of May 22, Chu is seen carrying seven garbage bags from his flat downstairs and then tossing the individual packs into the flower garden of his complex.
Law enforcement authorities found Huang's remains near Chu's house on May 27, scattered in a flower bed which they had unearthed.
The MMA fighter was found hanging from a tree near the Ministry of Health and Welfare Hospital in Xinzhuang District.
A woman claiming to be Chu's ex-wife came forward and spoke to Taiwanese media and said he was highly abusive to her.
According to her version of the relationship, Chu shared pictures of her injuries and imprisoned her against her will.
At the moment, police are still investigating the bone-chilling case.
The first indication of a problem surfaced on May 26 when the victim's brother, Francis Huang, appealed to members of the public for help the search for his missing sister who he said had been out of contact since May 19.
Authorities were able to track the incident to Chu's flat and discover her remains after Huang's brother launched an appeal to find her whereabouts. He had already suspected she was being held against her will by her Tinder boyfriend.
Further investigations are underway.
