The mother of a Taiwanese toddler who was brutally killed has wrote a loving message to her slain child.
The mother of a four-year-old girl who was brutally killed by a man in an apparent random attack has spoke of her loss… “Fortunately, I held you tightly and told you how much I loved you every single day,” wrote Claire Wang in a Facebook note.
The message was accompanied by a picture of her carrying her daughter, nicknamed “Little Light Bulb”, with her husband standing by.
“There was a thud … and I knew she was gone. I said to her: ‘Baby, it’s over’.
“Those who know me should understand that I always do my best in everything I do; I have a clear conscience, I am rational, I am optimistic and I am strong.
“As such, I fought hard to pull and stop the attacker on my own. I did everything I could.
“I miss her so much,” she wrote in the heartbreaking letter.
The distraught mother told the public to “hold your loved ones tightly. With all your strength, hug them and tell them ‘I love you'”.
The suspect, 33-year-old Wang Ching-yu, grabbed the child from behind and decapitated her with a cleaver as she was riding a bicycle past.
At the police station in Taipei on Monday, Wang told TV reporters: “I believe the suspects in these kinds of random killings lose their minds at that moment.”
“This is not a problem that can be solved by passing a law,” she said, according to The Straits Times. “I hope we can address the problem from its root, from the perspective of family and education, so there will no longer be such perpetrators in our society.”
“After the incident, many friends advised me to close my blog and Facebook page, but I really hope that her death can leave something behind, stir up some discussion, remind people of the importance of love, and call attention to the many issues in society,” she told reporters outside the funeral home on Tuesday.
She wrote on her Facebook post: “Please keep trusting people because society is still beautiful.
“Please give your dearest family members a hug. That would be the most comforting and caring thing you could do for us.”
