Police are investigating how a divorced mother, 52, and a daughter, 23 - an Open University student - died in their Ma On Shan flat where burned charcoal was found. The mother's brother called for help after learning of the tragedy when he visited the flat in Kam Foon House, Kam Hay Court, at 6pm. Further tests were to be conducted to find out whether it was a suicide pact. A district councillor said the pair had moved in not long ago and had financial problems.
