Audrey Fang latest: Link between Singaporean tourist, 39, found butchered to death in Spain and her alleged killer is revealed – as dozens pay respect at her funeral

Audrey Fang murder latest: Prime suspect was made main beneficiary of Singaporean tourist’s assets before she was found butchered to death in Spain

THE Singaporean woman, Audrey Fang, whose body was discovered this month in Murcia ditch, may have bought insurance policies from her suspected killer in 2016.

Audrey’s cousin said they were looking through her belongings on Saturday when they came across two investment-linked policies from insurer AIA.

The policies were sold by an agent named Ong Cheong Yi, which the family was told is the suspect, Mitchell Ong’s Chinese name.



Marriage registration records in Singapore also show that the suspect got married in June 2012 under the agent’s name.

Ong worked for AIA between 2014 and 2019, and the family had no previous knowledge of Audrey’s relationship with Ong.

Architect Audrey, 39, was last seen on CCTV leaving her luxury hotel and spa in Javea on April 9.

Her body- with 30 stab wounds- was found the next day some 150km away in Abanilla, Murcia, where it had been cruelly discarded on a dirt road where lorries usually park.

43-year-old Mitchell Ong was arrested on April 16 at an Alicante hotel after the body was identified by police as Audrey.

He has remained in custody ever since.

Money may have prompted the killing with Audrey transferring money to an unidentified third person.

The family have been concerned that Ong may have been named as a beneficiary in Ms Fang’s death insurance policy.

The Policia Nacional confirmed there was an attempt to make changes to her policy account in March, before she left for her Spanish trip.

Her family plans to approach the authorities to check if Ong had been made a beneficiary and whether any money had been transferred out of her bank account.

Audrey Fang’s body was repatriated to Singapore and dozens of relatives, classmates, colleagues and friends attended the first day of her three-day funeral wake on Saturday to pay their respects.


People described her as cheerful and outgoing, but kept her personal life separate from work.

A former boss said she was ‘approachable’ and a ‘happy-go-lucky’ person.
