Police have traced the address believed to be that of the woman who was hacked into six parts and stuffed into two luggage bags before being dumped at the Jalan Ipoh Bridge along Sungai Gombak here on July 5.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim said the victim's address was traced yesterday and her personal details have been obtained but investigations were still underway to verify the victim’s identity.

“Several case exhibits have been taken from the scene which is believed to be relevant to the case,” he said in a statement today.

He urged members of the public who have information on the case to contact Senior Investigation Officer ASP Faizal Abdullah at 012-4834439 or Dang Wangi District Criminal Investigation Department chief DSP M. Gunalan at 019-3114418.

About 11.30 am on July 5th, the body of the victim, aged in her 30s or 40s, believed to be a Muslim and a foreigner, was found by a homeless woman.

A police report was then lodged at the Putra Chow Kit community police station regarding the discovery of the suspicious-looking luggage bags.

Police found the severed body parts wrapped in two layers of black plastic bags and a bedsheet in two bags situated 20.6 metres apart.
