KUALA LUMPUR - The family of deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais has arrived at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) to identify a body found in an oil drum in a river along Jalan Subang 3 Wednesday.

His brother Datuk Richard Morais said the family received a call from the police at about 10.30am to come to HKL to provide a blood sample for doctors to compare to the body.

"I got here at abot 11.30am. But I am just waiting now. The body and police are not here yet," said Richard.

Richard was composed when he spoke with reporters and was accompanied by two other family members at the HKL mortuary at noon.

Sources revealed that the task force has been probing the area since 6am Wednesday.

Meanwhile, at the scene where the body was found were Selangor CID chief SAC Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah, City CID chief SAC Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad, KL police chief Comm Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa and Subang Jaya OCPD ACP Yahaya Ramli.

Fire and Rescue Department personnel were seen using a forklift to carry the drum away from the swamp for further investigations to be carried out.

It is learnt that Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh will be issuing a statement on the matter soon.

Morais went missing after leaving his residence in Menara Duta, here, on Sept 4 for work in Putrajaya in a grey Proton Perdana bearing the registration plate WA6264Q.
