A photograph of the man who allegedly bludgeoned his 63-year-old neighbor to death when she caught him ransacking her home in Kwai Fong, has been circulated online. The 25-year-old jobless man was said to have fled to Japan following the incident, with Hong Kong police seeking help from Interpol. Derran knew the daughter of Leung's neighbor, Choi, on Telegram and asked her to take him in, telling her his family had severed ties with him due to his participation in the 2019 protests. During his stay with Choi, Deran was heard several times in the corridor of the building answering calls from debt collection companies, a resident said. There was no forced entry as the killer used a spare key which the victim had left with her neighbor.
