IPOH, Malaysia - Police made a gruesome find of two bodies in the boot of a car at the south-bound Alor Pongsu rest area.

Flies were swarming outside the car, with a Penang registration plate, parked in front of the ladies' toilet at the rest area.

A police patrol car made the find at about 4.05pm yesterday after they were alerted of the strong stench coming from the car.

Police also found documents with the names of Ting Liong Chin, 28, and Seu Hong Chee, 19.

A police source said two men were believed to have left their house in Penang in the car at about 2.45pm on Oct 2.

It was not known yet where they were heading to, he said.

"We are still carrying out further investigation on how the bodies ended up there and the motive for it," he added.
