Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Girly Hossencofft

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Girly Chew Hossencofft, a 36-year-old woman born and raised in Malaysia who moved to the U.S. in the early nineties, after meeting and marrying an American, Daizien Hossencofft.

She disappeared from Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 9, 1999. By this time, she and Daizien were in the process of a divorce, as Girly had tired of his infidelity and domestic abuse.

Daizien pleaded guilty to Girly’s murder in 2002 and was sentenced to life plus 61 years in prison. He testified at the trial of his mistress, Linda Henning, who was also accused of the murder. It was a memorable trial to say the least, as Daizien said under oath that he was “a reptilian shape-shifter and capable of being in several places at one time.” He claimed Henning was innocent, but she was convicted anyway and got 73 years.

Girly’s body has never been found. Daizien implied that it was cannibalized.

    The husband sounds like someone who was addicted to Dr. Who. It would be nice of one of them to come clean and tell the authorities where she was buried. It would have been easy to get a divorce and to marry his new girlfriend.

    But then we had the incident with a 46 year old woman, who wanted a baby so bad, she and her daughter strangled a 19 year old girl in the City of Chicago, and then cut the baby out of her womb. So when the baby was not breathing, she calls the paramedics. However, the local trauma center located near me took nine days to notify the authorities that they were treating a baby, that was brought in by a woman, who when checked showed no signs of giving birth.

    So we now have three people who have been charged, the mother, daughter, and the mother’s boyfriend, who was charged with concealing a homicide. The woman, could have applied to be a foster parent. Instead she decided to take a life. The baby appears to be hanging on.

      Shapeshifting reptilian lizards are a standard crazy conspiracy theory (and the date is too soon to have gotten them from the TV show).
