A divorced man, Lee, two days ago, when his ex-wife Chen took their two young daughters to a kindergarten in Da-Liao of Kaohsiung City, in front of the kindergarten, he’d stabbed his ex to death, and abducted his seven-year-old eldest daughter, the police had managed to find Lee’s getaway car, but, the father-daughter pair had not been discovered yet.
Because two years ago, Lee had forcefully take the daughter, and left a note that he was taking her to die, and was discovered by the police, and he was sent into prison for it. Yesterday, Lee went to Kaohsiung from Taoyuan, to forcibly take his own daughter, the police are on high alert for the child’s safety, and already sent out notices all over Taiwan, and called out to Lee, “Please consider the child’s welfare.”
This murder abduction case happened at around seven fifty in the morn; the surveillance caught the thirty-two year old Chen, taking the younger child to the kindergarten, along with the younger sister, letting the two girls out, and the four of them had gone into the kindergarten together.
As Chen turned around to get back into her car, a white sedan sped toward her, blocked Chen’s path, she realized that the one who was driving was her thirty-seven year-old ex, she’d ran toward the kindergarten to grab her child, and called out to him NOT to touch her.
Lee and Chen gotten into a huge spat, started pulling and tugging on the daughter, Chen’s younger sister saw that neither one of them was letting go, she’d ran to Lee’s car, took the keys out of the ignition, to prevent him from getting away, and Lee was angered, he’d gotten a Rambo knife out from his car, and stabbed Chen to death, as the younger sister caught up, the older sister was already dying, in a pool of blood, Lee used the knife, and forcibly took the eldest daughter, and drove off fast.
Chen was dead before arriving to the hospital. The police, after two hours, found Lee’s getaway car, but, he had already taken his daughter and ran off.
Lee’s father told the police, that his son kept to himself, and rarely communicated with the family, that recently, he’d told him that he wanted to go to Kaohsiung to visit with his children, and he couldn’t imagine that he’d do something like this. Lee’s cell phone was turned off yesterday, and the police couldn’t manage to track him down.
Chen, the wife was from a well-known family in Kaohsiung, many years ago, she’d worked as a kindergarten teacher where she’d met Lee, who’s a drink delivery person, a little over seven years ago, they were married, because she got pregnant, but they didn’t get along afterwards.
Chen’s maternal grandfather told, that a year after they’d wed, Lee was out of a job, the couple moved back to Kaohsiung, Chen started working as an accountant at the factor, Lee was a delivery person, but, Lee felt that the work was too gruesome and didn’t want to do it anymore. Two years ago, Lee was displeased at how Chen wanted to divorce him, he’d beaten her up, and said that they’d die together, Chen had called up the courts for a restraining order, the courts mandated Lee NOT to harass her and her daughter again.
On the eve of Father’s Day that same year, Lee drove south to visit his child, the two got into a huge fight, Lee forcibly took the two daughters away, after the couple got into an argument, and Lee was sent to prison, last year on July third, he was released.
Chen’s maternal grandfather told, that two years ago after Lee was released, the two families lost contact, without realizing, that his own granddaughter would die under his ex’s knife. He signed, as he looked at the family portrait hanging on his walls: “Many years ago, the neighbors had warned of how Lee was wandering about his house, that the family should pay more attention, and he’d also installed surveillance outside, but, the inevitable still had happened.
And so, we still have a man, who is unwilling to LET go, and, they just failed to recognized the warning signs, which, is still why this preventable murder happened.
