Straight-A student found dead on varsity campus

KAJANG - A university student, used to getting straight A's, was found dead in the campus grounds.

The 23-year-old second year business accounting student, known as Lim, fell to his death from the fifth floor of one of the campus buildings which housed lecture halls at Sungai Long yesterday.

The campus security guard said he discovered Lim's bo­­dy at around 3am while making his rounds.

"I saw someone lying on the ground. I thought it was a drunk who passed out. But when I went closer, I saw all the blood," he said.

It is learnt that Lim, who had straight A's in his SPM and STPM examinations, was struggling with his studies.

Lim's father was reported to have said that they shared a close relationship and he always encouraged his son to have more friends and not to worry too much.

Lim's body was returned to his hometown in Malacca at around 5pm yesterday.
