Yoga ball murder: sister recalls last conversation with victim the day before she died

Posted on
If things had gone well, Wong Siew Fing, a passionate cook and loving mother, would have taken her children to Avignon, a vibrant city in France, in the summer of 2015, to sample the freshest produce at local food markets.

Then they would head south to Barcelona, Spain, for a taste of unique Catalonian cuisine.

‘If you don’t get caught, it’s not wrong’ motto of yoga-ball killer: sister-in-law

That’s all she and her sister, Wong Siew Fong, talked about during a long-distance call on May 21, 2015.

But the plan never materialised. The next day, the Britain-based younger sister thousands of miles away was about to learn the heartbreaking news that turned her world upside down.

Siew Fing, 47, and her daughter, Lily Khaw Li Ling 16, died after being discovered unconscious in their car in Hong Kong.

“Shock and disbelief was my first reaction on hearing about their deaths,” the surviving sister recalled.

On Wednesday, Wong’s husband and Lily’s father, Khaw Kim Sun, 53, an associate professor at Chinese University, was jailed for life for their murders. In a unanimous verdict, a jury found Khaw guilty of placing a carbon monoxide-filled yoga ball in the car, causing them to suffer fatal gas poisoning.

Speaking exclusively to the Post, Wong Siew Fong shared her still vivid memories of Siew Fing and Lily, remembering them as a “generous” sister and “witty” niece.
