Actress says no quarrel before fatal fall

A WELL-KNOWN Hong Kong actress said yesterday that her husband's sudden death "was an accident" and denied the couple had a quarrel that led to her husband's fall from a Shanghai high-rise on Monday.

Leanne Liu said in a statement issued yesterday afternoon that she was in a deep sleep when her husband fell from their luxury apartment.

Liu's husband, Taiwan scriptwriter Deng Yu-Quen, 64, was found dead among the greenery near the apartment in downtown Xuhui District early Monday morning.

Police said they have ruled out the possibility of homicide.

"He did not leave any will," according to Liu's statement.

Liu, 51, said Deng would have left a will or written a note if he had planned to commit suicide.

Liu also implied in the statement that Deng may have fallen accidentally while trying to adjust the satellite dish as the signal was not always good.

One of Deng's slippers was found hanging on the wires beside the satellite dish, Liu said in the statement.

The statement was released after earlier media reports said the couple had quarreled before the fall.

"We did exchange opinions on job issues on Sunday night but we did not have an argument," Liu said in the statement.

The couple married in 1999 and moved to Shanghai in 2008. Liu once described meeting Deng as "the luckiest thing that ever happened to me." Liu appeared in many TV dramas that were popular in both the Chinese mainland and Taiwan in the 1990s.
