The woman, surnamed Wong, 64, was believed to have died a few weeks ago, but her husband never told police. Emergency personnel were called to Kwun Tong Garden Estate in Sau Mau Ping shortly before midnight on Friday. A security guard, surnamed Sze, 61, was patrolling the building in the public housing estate and called police after residents complained about an odour coming from an eighth-floor flat. “A man answered the door and officers found the dead woman lying on the bed inside the flat,” police said. Initial investigations showed the woman had been dead for some time. A postmortem examination would be carried out to establish the cause of death.
