IPOH - A woman worried about her missing husband sought him out at his office only to find his naked body and that of his female colleague in a car in Bandar Cyber here.
According to sources, the 58-year-old man was believed to have had sex with the woman, 51, before they dozed off in the car with its engine still running.
The car was parked inside the man's office garage, which had been locked at about 9pm on Friday.
The woman was believed to be working with the man at the office.
Perak deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk A. Paramasivam said the bodies were found by the man's wife at the garage.
The wife, he said, was worried when her husband failed to return home and lodged a missing person report at about 8pm on Friday.
"Soon afterwards, she and her family went to the office and saw smoke coming out from the garage. Upon opening the garage door, she discovered her husband's body together with the body of a woman in the car with the engine still running," he said, adding that the woman's car was parked nearby.
However, DCP Paramasivam declined to speculate on the relationship between the two.
A post-mortem report revealed that the two had died due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
OCPD Asst Comm Sum Chang Keong said the report also confirmed that there were no wounds found on either of the bodies, adding that police had ruled out foul play.
"The case has been classified as sudden death. Both families of the deceased have claimed their bodies," he said.
At the mortuary, family members of the deceased declined comment.
