A question remains unanswered on the gruesome murder case in a Jurong flat last Saturday: what did the murder use to gouge out the victim’s eyes?
24 year old woman Elsie Lie Lek Chee was brutally murdered by her boyfriend Gabriel Lee Haw Ling and had her eyeballs gouged out and flung out of the windows.
However, the police has yet to find the weapon used to do so, leading to some to speculate that the victim’s eyes were gouged out using bare hands.
The couple who was due to marry soon, reportedly had a fight in the early hours of the morning and Elsie was reportedly ‘tortured’ by her boyfriend for hours before being killed with multiple slashes across her body.
The motive for the murder remains a mystery, but it may be a ‘crime of passion’ as Gabriel was very possessive and suspected Elsie of ‘two-timing’ him.
Gabriel is currently remanded at the Institute of Mental Health for a psychiatric assessment and his case will be heard again two days later. If convicted of murder, he faces the mandatory death penalty.

Elsie Lie Lek Chee was going to marry her boyfriend Gabriel Lee Haw Ling before she was brutally murdered by him. The gruesome murder took place in a Jurong West flat last Saturday morning. Ms Lie reported suffered multiple slashes across her body and her eyes were gouged out and flung out of the window where they were found on the ground by the police.
According to a neighbor who spoke to the media, Ms Lie revealed to her that she was going to get married soon and even invited her to her wedding.
However, Ms Lie’s parents said they did not even know she had a boyfriend and had never met him before.
Ms Lie reportedly met Gabriel on the internet a few months ago after which she moved in together with him in a rental flat in Jurong. He was divorced with two kids.
Unfortunately, her search for love met with a tragic end after a tiff with her lover who was charged with murder yesterday. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.
Ms Lie’s Facebook status indicates she is ‘in a relationship’ and one of her ‘interests’ is ‘stop domestic violence against women.’
