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.”

  • Good Lord. She is one very strong and amazing woman.


  • I will be sure to follow your advice xo


  • Truely heartbreaking. This mother is very strong.


  • i CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE what this mother is going through. What a horrific thing to happen to aNYONE.


  • This is horrific. Whilst reading this story, my youngest has woken up so I’m giving her extra cuddles before she goes back to bed. Like this mother is selflessly reminding everyone, every day I tell my kids I love them and I am proud of them.


  • Brave brave Claire thinking of others during her and her husbands time of grief. I hope that they can find peace in the future.


  • So brave. This would be horrific.


  • I will hug my son longer and harder today on his birthday. I was just reminiscing about the day he was born. Such a tragic story. My thoughts are with this family.


  • What an awful incident ! My thoughts and prayers go towards the parents / family. I agree with mums words, love, care and do good where you can, let go of anger and bitterness and don’t live in conflict.


  • oh what a heartfelt letter in such a sad and horrible time for her – my hearts breaks for them, but I am honouring her request by hugging my girls just that extra bit tighter and longer while I whisper in their ears that I am proud of them and that I love them – so very sorry for her loss :(


  • Terrible thing to have happened – just shows how important it is to let your loved ones know you love them every day.


  • Headline includes “has wrote”.
    Grammar not important any more?
    It’s quite distracting from the content that follows.

    • The story upset our whole family. I have lost kids and this story destroyed me.

      Then some small minded person’s comment upset me to a minor rage.
      Eestigirl, how could you devalue such a story, a true story and a tragedy, with a grammar correction? Hang on, you did not even correct it.

      I am so sorry on behalf of every person that makes written mistakes. I am so disappointed, and without knowing you I can’t justify your words, but I forgive you regardless.


  • I am sorry the parents loss and I agree with her philosophy. Show love and care to those who are in your lives, because we never know what our next moment will be like. Tell them you love them every day because when they are gone there is no coming back.


  • OMG! How terribly heartbreaking :(


  • What a horrific attack!
