Chong said they had yet to find anything substantial other than the bones, which police could not confirm whether they belonged to humans or animals.
Choi’s family, dressed in black, gathered near the house where parts of Choi’s body were found to pay their respects. Some mourners were emotional, but the family didn’t seem to answer reporters’ questions.
Alex Kwon appeared in another court on Tuesday and was released on bail in a previous theft case.
Cui, who has more than 100,000 followers on Instagram, went missing on February 21, according to a report later filed with Hong Kong police. Her last post was her February 19th, featuring a photo shoot she did for fashion magazine L’Officiel Monaco.
Police said Choi had tens of millions of Hong Kong dollars (millions of dollars) in financial trouble with her ex-husband and his family.
Violent crime levels are so low in the semi-autonomous city of southern China that the gruesome murders have riveted many across the border between Hong Kong and mainland China.
Mr. Choi’s friend Bernard Cheng previously said he first thought Mr. Choi had been kidnapped.
“I never imagined that someone so good, so full of love, so innocent, so innocent, who had done nothing wrong, would be killed like this. ‘My heart is still heavy. I can’t sleep well.'”
Mr. Cheng said Choi had four children ranging from three to 10 years old. Choi has remarried to Chris Tam, the father of her young children with her family.
Choi has a good relationship with her family, including her in-laws, and has traveled with her current and ex-husband’s families.
Violent crime is rare in Hong Kong, but the case brings to mind some other shocking murders. In 2013, a man murdered his parents and his head was found in a refrigerator. In another notorious incident in 1999, a woman was kidnapped and tortured by three of her members of an organized crime group before she died. Her skull was later found stuffed into a Hello Kitty doll.
