SUNGAI BULOH: Rosshida Abdullah, whose body was found under a bridge in Cyberjaya, was believed to have been killed in Penarik, Kuala Terengganu, about 500km away from where she was dumped.
Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Rahim Jaafar said the waitress could have been strangled by her jealous fiance while both of them were travelling back to her village in Kelantan.
The fiance is now the main suspect in Rosshida's murder.
DCP Rahim said that in a panic after allegedly killing Rosshida, the IT businessman then decided to turn back to Cyberjaya, wrapping his fiancee's body in a blanket to make it look like she was sleeping.
"They were driving back to Kelantan when they started quarrelling in the car while at Penarik.
"We believe that Rosshida's fiance may have been jealous about her going out with another man," he said.
DCP Rahim said the suspect was believed to have strangled Rosshida in the heat of the moment and made a U-turn to Cyberjaya to dispose of her body.
Rosshida, 30, was found dead under a bridge in Cyberjaya at about 5pm on Wednesday.
It was earlier believed that she had committed suicide as a note was found next to her body.
The printed note was made to look like she was experiencing financial difficulties and was embarrassed to tell her fiance.
A 26-year-old businessman was arrested on Thursday night in connection with her murder.
