A Chinese-American socialite named Lili Luo and her 5-month daughter were found dead on January 6, 2021. The two fell from Luo's penthouse in Hong Kong, the police said. 


Luo was reportedly suffering from post-partum depression and local media reports alleged that she jumped from her floor. Both them were declared dead at the scene and Luo was found naked. Luo's daughter was 5-month-old and her name was Aier. The autopsy reports are still awaited which will determine the real cause of the death. 

Reportedly, the police said, " The woman and the baby girl were certified dead at the scene. Initial investigation revealed that they fell from a unit." 

A Chinese media outlet named The Cover quoted Luo's friend and philanthropist Alice Chiu Tsang Hok-Wan saying that Luo was a single mother and the biological father of her daughter refused to marry her. "After falling pregnant, < Luo> hoped to get married to her boyfriend and honour their relationship in an open and official manner. However, her boyfriend was not ready to get married". She added that Luo was passionate about charity and was a kind and optimistic woman. Luo had kept the identity of her boyfriend a secret.
