Decomposed body found in drain

KUALA LUMPUR - A decomposed body was found with slash and stab wounds in a drain at Pandah Mewah here.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Amiruddin Jamaluddin said the man, who is believed to be a foreigner in his 30s, was found yesterday with multiple wounds to the neck, body and hands in a drain 40m away from a row of shops.

"After checks by the forensics team and pathologist, we believe that the man has been dead for more than three days," he said.

ACP Amiruddin said the CCTVs belonging to the shops did not cover the scene and there were no witnesses to any incident in the area.

He added that the body has been sent to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital.

"We will investigate if there were any fights involving foreign nationals in the area.

"We will also check missing persons' reports," said ACP Amiruddin.
