EP 7: Professor Khaw - The Yoga Ball Murders (Hong Kong)

Also available on Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts.


What's the most dangerous weapon - a gun? A knife? Poison?

How about a Yoga Ball? 

On 22nd May 2015, Malaysian Professor Khaw Kim Sun murdered his wife and 15-year-old daughter with none other than a deadly yoga ball. They were found unresponsive in a yellow cooper at Sai O Village bus stop near the family home in Ma On Shan. 

Professor Khaw was known to be a brilliant avant-garde anesthesiologist, but the façade of a successful professional and a happy family bellied a ugly but not uncommon truth. Their marriage had broken down and he was having an extramarital affair.


This was the backdrop to a tragedy that shook Hong Kong and the rest of Asia.
