New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: A man whose badly de­com­posed body was found in a unit at Flat Sri Pe­nara in Ban­dar Per­maisuri Cheras was stran­gled so hard that his neck was bro­ken.

Cheras po­lice chief As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Chong Kok Sin said the post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion on the man’s body re­vealed that the 32-year-old died due to lig­a­ture stran­gu­la­tion, which snapped his neck.

He is be­lieved to have been stran­gled while his wrists were tied with hair dryer and mo­bile phone power cords.

He said the de­ceased’s mother and step­fa­ther had gone to Univer­siti Ke­bangsaan Malaysia Med­i­cal Cen­tre to iden­tify and claim the body.

Chong said po­lice were still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case and had yet to iden­tify the mur­derer.

On Mon­day, po­lice found the half-naked body sprawled face down next to the bed in a messy room.

There was a towel wrapped around his neck.

It is learnt that the vic­tim’s neigh­bours alerted po­lice on a foul smell com­ing from the unit. Neigh­bours said the man had lived alone in the house.
