Hong Kong Murders: A Kiss on the Cheek and She Was Gone

Updated on

On the last night of her life, Seneng Mujiasih stopped by the Queen Victoria Bar in the heart of Hong Kong’s red-light district. Dressed in a leopard-skin jumpsuit, she was on her way to a Halloween party at her favorite haunt, a bar two doors down. Six hours later, police found her with her neck slashed in an upscale apartment two blocks away.

“She gave me two kisses on the cheek as always,” said Robert van den Bosch, a 47-year-old Dutchman who works as a disc jockey in the Wan Chai bar district and knew her for three years. “She said, ‘I am going to enjoy myself tonight.’”
