True Crime Classics: The 'Perfect' Murder, The Trial of Sunny Ang (A True Story)
- About the Author
- A brilliant psychopath hiding under the veneer of an educated, charming persona, while plotting the perfect murder
- A hapless victim whose body is never found
- A gripping story of how the law catches up with a cunning and cold-blooded murderer
Bankrupt and desperate for money, a brilliant psychopath planned the perfect crime. Sunny Ang selected his victim with care. Jenny was a young divorced bar girl with little schooling, flattered that an educated, charming man should notice her. He seduced her and promised marriage. He also insured Jenny’s life for a million dollars; the sum would go to his mother if she died an accidental death. Then he plotted murder: first, an unsuccessful car accident, and then the fatal scuba diving trip off the dangerous waters of Sisters Islands. Jenny went down and never came up. Only a cut flipper was found.
Without a body, the prosecution had no medical evidence and no witnesses to claim unnatural death. How did the law finally catch up with Ang?
