KUCH­ING: Po­lice have yet to iden­tify the man, who was found dead by the river­bank not far from SK Kam­bug bridge on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Padawan Dis­trict po­lice chief Supt Aidil Bol­has­san, they are also un­able to link him with any re­port of miss­ing per­sons from the vil­lage, based on feed­back from mem­bers of the Ulu Padawan Peo­ple’s Vol­un­teer Corps ( Rela).

“For now, the case is clas­si­fied as sud­den death, pend­ing re­sults from post-mortem,” he said when con­tacted.

It is re­ported that some vil­lagers found the body at 7.10pm on Sun­day – it was on a rock by the river­bank, about 15m from the bridge, which is the main route for the res­i­dents there. They im­me­di­ately alerted the po­lice about the grim dis­cov­ery.

Based on the de­com­po­si­tion of the body, Aidil be­lieved that the man died more than three days ago.

When found, the body was clad in brown long-sleeved shirt and long pants – with­out shoes.

Aidil also said there was a red plas­tic beg found along­side the body – next to the left ear – but could not de­ter­mine what it con­tained.

More­over, he said the out­come from the post-mortem should help them iden­tify the man, and also for them to seek the nextof-kin.

“We will also check fur­ther re­ports of miss­ing per­sons from po­lice sta­tions un­der the Padawan ju­ris­dic­tion. A check on the fin­ger­prints will also be con­ducted,” said Aidil.

It is stated that the site, where the body was found, is about 7km away from the SarawakKal­i­man­tan bor­der – the near­est vil­lage is Kam­pung Sapit.
