KULAIJAYA - Workers from PLUS Bhd stumbled upon a horrific find while conducting their usual rounds along the North-South Expressway - the body of a man hacked into many pieces and packed into plastic bags.
Apparently, the maintenance workers were working by the highway when they came across the bags at KM21 heading south.
Noticing a foul smell, a worker opened one of the bags to find a severed head and other parts.
Apparently, the victim had been murdered at a separate location before being dumped by the expressway.
It is also learnt that the victim was aged between 30 and 40. There were stab wounds on the back of his body and neck.
Kulaijaya OCPD Supt Ruslan Khaled said his officers received a report from PLUS at around noon. "We have yet to identify the victim," he said.
"We believe that he was murdered about a day or two days ago."
He added that the body parts were sent to the Hospital Sultanah Aminah for a post-mortem.
"We have formed a special task force to identify the suspect or suspects behind the incident," he said, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
He urged anyone who may have witnessed anything strange near the area or have any information pertaining to the incident to contact the Johor police hotline at 07-221 2999 or visit the nearest police station.
