HONG KONG — Vicky Flores was found floating on the Tung Chung bay in Lantau Island on April 11, 2008. Hong Kong police declared her death a suicide after less than a week of investigation. But Flores’ friends and Filipino migrant groups are skeptical and protested in Discovery Bay where she worked and lived over the findings, noting that witnesses saw Flores running away from her employer’s house, barefooted and in pajamas on the day she disappeared. They also said the place where her body was found was a 30-minute ride by bus from her residence.
