Missing man found dead with stab wounds, almost decapitated
KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — A man who was missing from home since Saturday, was finally found under gruesome circumstances yesterday — stabbed to death, almost decapitated and dumped inside a drain in Segambut Gate.
Passers-by stumbled on the decomposing body of the 35-year-old victim about 1.30pm before alerting the police.
Clad in T-shirt and shorts, the man's almost severed head was wrapped in a blanket and the body stuck in a garbage trap of the drain.
Declining to identify the victim, Sentul police deputy chief Supt Othman Abu Bakar said today, a post-mortem at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (KLH) revealed the
man had died two days ago.
"He sustained six stab wounds on the right side of the chest and was almost decapitated.
"We do not rule out the possibility he was killed elsewhere and the body dumped in the drain," he said, adding that the victim's wife lodged a missing persons report on Monday.
In a separate case, the police have detained a Columbian national in a connection with a series of break-ins at a luxury condominium in Solaris Duta here.
The 30-year-old suspect who entered the country on a tourist visit pass on June 20, was picked up at 9.30 last night.
He was nabbed by a police team when he attempted to make a getaway by jumping into a monsoon drain near the condominium.
Othman said the suspect was warded at the KLH as he had injured his right ankle.
He said two sling bags which the man had flung on the road before his arrest contained RM1,000, house break-in tools and stolen goods, namely, laptop and a cell phone. — Bernama
