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.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
