PETALING JAYA - It was supposed to be an exciting next few months for the Go family who were happily preparing for a wedding but tragedy struck.

Go Lee Peng, 30, had been busy with the details for her December wedding when told that her younger sister Lee Kun was in a coma after a snatch theft gone wrong.

"I rushed back. Everything was left hanging while we stayed by her bed for five days, and then she left us," said Lee Peng at the University Malaya Medical Centre mortuary yesterday.

Youngest of five siblings, 27-year-old Lee Kun was walking to her car near Sri Manja Court around 8pm on Thursday when a speeding motorcycle went past her and she fell heavily onto the road. She suffered severe head trauma and her handbag strap was ripped.

"She was supposed to be my maid of honour," said Lee Peng, fighting to hold back tears.

"We were a happy family. Lee Kun was always cheerful and kind to everyone. We never thought that something like this could happen to us."

The thieves, she said, would never know the pain they have caused her and her family.

The funeral will be held at the Nirvana Memorial Centre in Sungai Besi on Friday at 11am.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said the case has been classified as murder and police are conducting a thorough investigation.

"Anyone with information on the incident should contact the police immediately," he said. The police can be reached at 03-2052 9999.
