Hong Kong is full of “haunted” properties. While some real estate companies will not even give a valuation or take on these listings, one property website has a special category for buildings where a murder, suicide or other untimely death has occurred. Given Hong Kong’s crowded living conditions, you do not have to go far to see a building with a dark history. It might be unfair to call them “haunted” as the word 凶 in Cantonese more commonly means death by unnatural causes more than actual supernatural activity, but the word is often used in the ghostly sense, too. The bad juju of an unnatural death permeates so much into the public consciousness that these properties often sell or rent for 20 to 30 per cent below market price, and if it’s an apartment building unit on the same floor, directly above and below, prices are often affected too. Bruce Lee to Stanley Ho – where are Hong Kong’s dead celebrities buried? Read on to find out if there are “haunted” apartments near where you live. J Residence In the early hours of November 1, 2014, Hong Kong police received three phone calls from a disoriented man, who kept saying “something happened” in his flat. Nothing could have prepared the officers for the carnage they would encounter within the one bedroom flat in Wan Chai. Jesse Lorena Ruri was found naked on the floor, near death with lacerations to her neck, throat and body. The flat was littered with sex toys, cocaine and a 12-inch knife. A female corpse was discovered in a large black suitcase on the balcony of the flat later, identified to be Sumarti Ningsih. Lorena was pronounced dead soon after the discovery. British banker Rurik Jutting was convicted of the vicious murders in 2016. It was reported that his murder spree was triggered by the break up with his fiancée. He quit his job at Bank of America Merrill Lynch the Monday before the killings began and his spine-chilling out of office message read: “For escalation please contact God, though suspect the devil will have custody [Last line only really worked if I had followed through].” 3 Repulse Bay In April 2015, a 15-year-old girl plunged to her death in the affluent area of Repulse Bay. While a teenage suicide is tragic in its own right, the family secret suspected as the motive behind the teen’s death was what made headlines. Born in Hong Kong to the managing director of one of the world’s largest insurance brokers and his partner, a Filipino who had overstayed on her visa, all accounts of those who knew the family testify that they were happy and functioning; however, the girl and her sister did not attend a single day of school nor held any identity documents because of the illegal immigration status of their mother. Bruce Lee to Stanley Ho – where are Hong Kong’s dead celebrities buried? Parkview The murder of Robert Kissel shocked Hong Kong, especially the expat community that make up a large portion of the finance industry. The story was that Kissel suspected his wife of infidelity. He was gathering evidence through a private investigator as well as preparing for a divorce and full custody of their children. His wife Nancy found out about his plans and fed him a milkshake laced with sedatives. After succumbing to the cocktail of drugs, Kissel was bludgeoned to death by his wife with a metal statuette. His corpse was left in the master bedroom for several days before she rolled him up in a carpet and stored the body in the building’s storeroom. Dubbed the “Milkshake Murderer”, Nancy Kissel claimed self defence due to long term abuse, but was ultimately convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Illumination Terrace “I am the exorcist!” were the chilling words uttered by San Jose Maria Jestle Guarin when she was arrested in 2010. She was the domestic worker who brutally murdered and mutilated her employer Kei Yin-lam. It was reported that neighbours heard cries for help around 4.50am and security arrived at the scene with officers from the police and fire department. After noticing blood seeping from front door, officers broke the door down to find the lifeless body of 47-year-old Kei on the floor with multiple lacerations. Betty Ting Pei: the last person to see Bruce Lee alive Sadly, this was a tragic and particularly violent schizophrenic episode and Guarin was remanded to a mental facility soon after. The Coronation Rage, revenge and a bitter love triangle sound like the plot of a film, but tragically for Fong Yin-ting, 29, and her husband Chow Wai-fai, 30, these motives led to their deaths at their luxury flat complex in Yau Ma Tei. It was said that Chow moved out of the marital home after Fong found out about his affair with a woman he met on social media. Pools of blood were found in the flat, believed to belong to Fong. Multiple lacerations were found on Fong and it was believed that Chow attacked her, threw her over the balcony and jumped off himself soon after. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
