Case 254

Winsie Hau

*** Content warning: child victim ***

On the afternoon of January 14, 2012, 15-year-old Winsie Hau was attacked with a knife by a 14-year-old boy. Winsie’s father was also attacked, and while he survived his injuries, Winsie did not.  

Police swiftly captured the attacker, who confessed to the killing. However, he was adamant that he had only done so at the behest of two other teenagers. It soon emerged that a trivial teenage quarrel between two friends had led to the murder.
